What to Wear in Family Portraits

Every year we are asked the same question…..”What do we wear for our portraits this year?” It’s a great question because poor planning/clothing can pretty much destroy an otherwise awesome photo. Families are units of individual people so dressing in all exact matching clothing is not ideal. NEITHER IS EVERYONE WEARING THEIR FAVORITE OUTFIT! Color harmony is super important. If your goal is to have something beautiful to put on your wall at home, you should consider dressing is a color palette that works well with the decor you have. We have a page dedicated to clothing in family photos. Here is the link: https://www.pinterest.com/iimagesphotog/clothing-suggestions-for-family-portraits/
I especially love this chart as a reference for colors that look great together.mixing colors

Hallie

In the spotlight today is Plano West senior, Hallie. Hallie is a member of our model team. Her senior session was done in June before things really heated up.

Hallie’s Mom, Sondra, and I are from the same small Oklahoma town – Duncan, OK. I have done several kids from Duncan through the years and it is always a honor for me to get to work with people from my hometown.

Get to know Hallie -

Favorite thing to do in her spare time is SING. Her favorite musical artist is John Mayer. She loves the bible verse, “Come to me, all those who are weary, and I will give you rest. ” Matthew 11:28

What a great kid with a bright future and so photogenic! Here are just a few of the images from her session.

Senior Model Team 2017!

We had a great time photographing the first girls from the Class of 2017 in a vintage 1940′s style of photography. Each model was easy to work with and so beautiful. Can’t wait to photograph them individually this summer for their senior portrait sessions! We will be posting some of their images throughout the summer and I know they will be awesome so stay tuned!group

Abby

Abby is from a family of GIRLS (and her Dad, of course) and I have been taking her pictures for many years. Her eyes are so blue and they literally sparkle. She attends McKinney Christian Academy and loves to draw, sing and run. Her favorite subject is Math. Her pet peeve is when people show off – I agree!  She loves summer and would love to visit Australia. Abby’s favorite quote is “The pain you feel cannot compare to the joy that is to come.” Now that is something to remember!
