Walker | Pittsboro Newborn Photographer

 Walker’s Mommy and I went to elementary, middle, high school and college together. I love her dearly. I had the honor of photographing many milestones in her life like her engagement to Jason, their wedding, their sweet first born, Molly and now, Molly’s baby brother Walker! Check out these sweet images of their newest addition!

What to Wear Wednesday | NC Family Portrait Photographer

Choosing clothing for a session can be a VERY stressful task! Yes, its tempting to put everyone in the same identical shirts, but your photograph has so much more character if you don’t. Chose more of a color palette and dress everyone within the palette. This will give everyone their own unique outfit, yet everyone will still coordinate. Some of my favorite color palette’s are: brown/kacki/white/creams for a very natural look, grey/navy/pink, blue/orange, purple/orange, navy/green.

Want to go with a basic color scheme? Jeans, with mixes of white(s) and tan(s) make for a very classic look that’s not too matchy!

Still stuck on the “Can we just wear jeans and white shirts?” You can but please try and give your photos some character and mixing up the basic white shirt and jeans look that lots of other people do! Maybe even add an additional color that you could use to accent with necklaces, earrings, bracelets, or belts.

What to Wear Wednesday | NC Family Portrait Photographer

The weather is finally beginning to warm up. I don’t remember a winter this cold and with so much precipitation in NC in a LONG time. I’m thankful to finally see the sun again! On my old blog I used to do a post sometimes called, “What to Wear Wednesday”.  I thought I would carry this over to the new blog because it is time to be thinking about those spring portraits!

When doing some research myself about outfit options for portrait sessions I came across another photographer, Kristin Rachelle, who put together these family outfit examples for her clients. I emailed her and with her permission I’m allowed to share them with you! It’s so hard sometimes to see how everything will look together and photograph in your pictures, so hopefully these ideas will help!

Please remember is that there is no need to focus on matching everything from the color of your shirt to the color of everyone else’s shirt in the photo. In fact, if you don’t then there’s so much more character that you can add to the photograph. There’s no need to worry about each and every item, this is suppose to be a fun process.

Hope this helps you to see how items can be different, yet tie together too!

Happy Wednesday!
