Wondering what to Wear for your Outdoor Family Photos?
We’ve got you covered with clothing color schemes for each of the popular locations in Orange County.
Make sure you have right color outfits to go with the scenery at your session!
Do you want to find out what to wear for your outdoor family photos? Your outdoor family photo session is coming up and you’re going through your mental checklist: get haircuts, wax those eyebrows, pick the outfits.
In your outdoor family photos, I recommend picking two to three colors and coordinating everyone’s outfits around that color scheme. For example, navy and cream with a pop of gold.
Think of your location when it comes to color schemes for your photography wardrobe:
What to wear to a family session | Classic Neutrals
The Classic Neutrals: There is timeless elegance with neutrals and earthy tones. Think of beiges or cremes – these colors look great in open fields, such as Laguna Canyon, San Juan Open Spaces, Alta Laguna Park and Mission San Juan Capistrano.
What to Wear to a Family Photo shoot | For bold and vibrant clothing
Bold & Vibrant: This is for our fashionistas! Stand out with bright and bold colors that pop – just be careful to avoid clashing colors in group photos. This color scheme works great in an urban environment to show off your style. The best locations in Orange County for these types of sessions include The Lab, The Camp, Downtown Laguna Beach, Orange Circle, Los Rios Historic District, Newport Fun Zone and the Santa Ana Arts District.
What to Wear to an Outdoor family session | Pastel Perfection
Pastel Perfection: Use oft and dreamy pastel hues to create a whimsical atmosphere. These color schemes will look great during a sunset at the beach, San Juan Capistrano in the flower fields, Laguna Niguel Botanical Gardens, or Sherman Gardens in Corona Del Mar.
What to Wear to a family shoot | Mixing and matching patterns
Mixing Patterns: Embrace creativity with playful patterns that complement each other. You can add hints of polka dots to a tie, or a hair bow, or even socks. There’s many fun ways to harmonize styles and patterns to each of your family members. These looks are best at the beach, an urban area or in a field.
What to Wear to a Family Session | Cool Blues and Greens
Cool Blues & Greens: Cool tones create a serene and calming effect. These dreamy images can help promote a sense of calm and well-being, which will not only look great for your memories but also on the walls of your home. Great destinations for these include the beach, Newport Back Bay, Balboa Island, and the Newport Beach Pier.
