What to wear guide for Spring Family Portraits

When it comes to family photography sessions in Spring in Australia, it's essential to consider the comfortable yet stylish clothing options for families. Spring offers beautiful natural backdrops with blooming flowers and pleasant weather.

Here's a guide on what to wear for family photography sessions in this season:

For Adults:

  1. Pastel and Earthy Tones: Spring is all about light, soft colors. Pastels like light blues, pinks, and mint greens, as well as earthy tones like beige and light gray, work well to complement the natural surroundings.

  2. Layered Outfits: Layering adds depth and texture to your photos. Adults can wear lightweight cardigans, blazers, or scarves in coordinating colors.

  3. Flowy Dresses and Skirts: Flowy dresses and skirts for women look elegant and create a sense of movement in the photos. Floral prints are also a great choice for a springy vibe.

  4. Neutrals with a Pop of Color: Wearing neutral base colors with a pop of a brighter color in an accessory like a statement necklace or a belt can make the outfits visually interesting.

  5. Denim: A well-fitted pair of jeans is a versatile option. For a more casual look, choose faded or distressed denim.

  6. Comfortable Footwear: Spring can still be a bit cool, so closed-toe shoes, loafers, or boots can be practical and stylish choices.

For Kids:

  1. Colorful and Fun: Dress kids in colorful, playful outfits. Bright, cheerful colors like blues, pinks, and yellows work well.

  2. Coordinating Outfits: While not necessary, coordinating the colors of the kids' outfits with the adults can create a cohesive look for the family photos.

  3. Comfortable Clothing: Ensure that kids are comfortable in what they're wearing, as it will help them relax and enjoy the session.

  4. Hats and Accessories: Cute hats, headbands, or bowties can add a whimsical touch to kids' outfits.

General Tips:

  1. Avoid Neon Colors: Neon colors can be distracting and may not photograph well.

  2. Avoid Logos and Busy Patterns: Clothing with large logos or busy patterns can divert attention from the family.

  3. Bring a Change of Clothes: Sometimes, it's fun to have a few outfit changes during the session, especially if you're visiting multiple locations.

  4. Consider the Location: Keep in mind the setting of your photoshoot. If you're in a park or by the beach, casual and relaxed attire is suitable. For a more formal setting, opt for slightly dressier options.

  5. Personal Style: While coordinating outfits can look great, don't forget to reflect your family's personal style. Everyone should feel like themselves.

  6. Comfort is Key: Ensure that everyone is comfortable in their clothing. Uncomfortable outfits can make the photography session less enjoyable.

Remember that the key to a successful family photography session is to capture genuine moments and emotions. Your clothing choices should enhance the natural beauty of your family and surroundings. Spring in Australia provides a wonderful backdrop for family photos, and dressing thoughtfully will make your pictures truly memorable.
