Dark Colours. This kind of colour makes a person slender, and this is somewhat serious. Dark clothing helps to blend bodies with the background, so the face is emphasized thus making it an important subject. Dark colours are also best worn during winter as they represent heat. It should be avoided during summer as they have a little solar heat and are hotter as a result.

Bright Colours. Should be worn if there is a specific themed for the photoshoot. This colour draws away from the attention from the face, and it is reflective. When choosing a colourful one in a photo shoot, make sure that this should be pastel. It may not be invigorating or exciting; however, pastel colour can be gorgeous and unique. It is also versatile as this can be matched with any clothing.

Light Colours. This type of colour represents simplicity and freshness. Light coloured ones are perfect during summer because it connotes a softer and more relaxed feeling. Unlike dark shades that absorb more heat, bright colours are good as this eliminates the absorption of heat in the body.


Wear the Clothes That You Love

Overall it is best to look for outfits in their closet which is your usual favourite. A go-to-outfit when going out with friends or family which makes them feel fabulous. Bringing outfits that fit perfectly and reflects who they truly make it picture perfect.


Coordinate Outfit Instead of Matching

In a family photo shoot, the best way to look is to have some family members in printed while others in solid colour. The key is to set the mood in a photo shoot and play with different colours to match.


Don't Over Accessorize

As we always hear for makeup, less is also more when it comes to accessories. Overbearing and or heavily noticeable accessories can be a significant distraction. Simple accessories help draw attention on the face and the subject. Make it simple and don't overdo as this will be a distraction in the photo.

Preparation is the key when it comes to a photo shoot. It is best to layout all your clothing, accessories and everything that should be included so that it is easier for you to choose. Clothing should not be too tight or too loose, and it should be simple and coordinated. Avoid loud or busy patterns and giant logos.

Keep a group in similar colours, solid colours are the best. In this way, the portrait focus will be seen on the subject that make up the portrait. Having different colours will be a distraction; thus it is better to be well coordinated. Everyone should have a colour-coordinated outfit, an outfit that fits well and is excellent for a family portrait. Your portrait and family portraits are the vital assets that we have in our family and our life. It should be taken cared of so that this can be seen by generations to come.
