Styling Your Family for Portraits

By Portrait Innovations on 2015-07-10


Summer is finally here! This means a gorgeous new background for your beautiful portraits. Our #1 goal is to ensure that you love your experience, as well as the portraits you take home. Along with our skilled photographers, Portrait Innovations offers expert tips on how to make your session everything you want it to be. Check out our suggestions for this season’s Summer background.

Summer Background: Oceanside, with dunes and tall grass in the distance. A sandy wood panel walkway in the foreground.

Grab inspiration from the background! Choose cheerful, summer colors that will make your family pop in portraits. A color palette that blends is key, and coordinating the colors with accessories and accents, makes for a well put together look. Be careful to stay away from busy patterns, or patterns that are tiny enough to skew on camera.

We LOVE this Patriotic-inspired wardrobe. Throwing a neutral into the bunch, such as white or khaki, really helps break up the color throughout your family. This look is sure to remind you of the cookouts, beach, and long weekends of Summer with your family.

• American flags, sunglasses, or personal mementos make for great props. Your portrait is what you make it, and what better way to make your session unique than adding your own personal touch.
• With many backgrounds to choose from, we encourage our clients to bring different looks to mix it up. Dressy, casual, different color palettes, you decide!
• Relatives coming in town this summer? Cherish and share this memory by getting everyone together for one great photo. Bring on the matching T-shirts and multiple generations!
