Showcasing Your Style in Family Photos

Family Sessions

In this new blog post, we’re exploring the art of highlighting your unique style in family photos. I recently had fun spending time at a studio in Seattle, capturing casual family moments with a stylish family of four. What sets this family apart is their commitment to showcasing their everyday aesthetic in the photos. If you’re aiming to achieve a similar vibe for your family photoshoot this year, here are some key insights to consider.

Define Your Style Narrative:

Before we even begin, take the time to define your family’s style narrative. Are you drawn to classic elegance, casual vibes, modern chic, or a blend of eclectic elements? Clarifying your family style sets the tone for a cohesive photoshoot. If you need help defining your family style, start with the shops you visit on the regular.

Coordinate, Don’t Match:

Coordination is key to showcasing style in family photos. Instead of matching outfits, opt for coordinated color schemes, and textures that highlight each family member’s individuality. Notice how this family creates the impression of coordination, yet they cleverly swapped out tops and accessories to showcase their individual styles.

Consider Location and Theme:

Align your style choices with the photoshoot location and theme for a cohesive visual narrative. This family opted for an all-white, floor-to-ceiling photography studio with open-concept design, complete with furniture. Their choice allowed them to seamlessly integrate their outfits while aligning perfectly with their existing style.

Opt for Editorial Poses:

Choosing the perfect family photographer who shares your style vision is akin to discovering a trusted confidant. Partner with an editorial-style photographer to beautifully capture your family’s unique style, blending seamlessly with your home decor and lifestyle.

Book the Photoshoot:
