What About Clothing Styles For My Family Photos?

As a professional family photographer in Auckland, Boutique Lifestyle Photography are often asked ‘How should I dress for family portraits?‘ When selecting outfits for your family, the first thing to understand is that there is no ‘wrong’ choice. Choosing a clothing style or theme for your photo shoot is an individual choice!

It’s more important that you and your family feel at ease and comfortable in your outfits. If you choose a style that doesn’t resonate with you, that will clearly show in your portraits. If you are unsure, the safest option is to go for a smart-casual look, which is both relaxed yet always photographs well.

When preparing for your family portrait photo shoot at Boutique Lifestyle Photography, it’s also a great idea to look at our image galleries to gain inspiration! You will quickly see what styles of outfit and colours stand out to you 🙂

How to Dress for my Family Photo Shoot?

It is best to dress in a style that you feel comfortable in, and to ensure you have some clothing consistency among family members. The colours you choose don’t have to be identical, complimentary colours (such as cool or warm) work well too. This ensures your professional family images look well balanced and professional. You can view our Boutique Lifestyle Photography portrait galleries to see some great examples of how others have chosen to dress, and base your decisions accordingly.

We also encourage you to bring along a couple of clothing options if you are unsure. We do provide a changing room in our studio for you to use.

In addition, other factors that contribute to stunning results are found in some of the smaller details. For example, ensure that you come with clean hair and freshly ironed clothing. Also, ensure shoes are clean and try to avoid any form of sunburn prior to your session. Other things include ensuring your nails are neatly trimmed. If you choose to wear nail polish, ensure this has recently been touched up. Otherwise natural looking, neatly trimmed nails are ideal.

If you are planning on wearing makeup in your family portraits, be sure to have tried your makeup in advance. Again, this ensures you are happy with your complexion and results in your portraits. For men, either a clean shaven look works well (assuming you don’t have a beard). Alternatively, a neatly trimmed beard likewise works best.
