Fashion Fridays! | Clarksville, TN Family and Child Photographer

One of the most common questions I get when someone books a portrait session is "What should we wear?"

Well, in an effort to help you decide what would compliment your portraits best, I've decided to try and come up with a post at least one Friday a month called Fashion Fridays.  

If you're like me, you're on a budget and have to get the most bang for your buck.  You want to look nice for your portraits, but you also want to wear something (or purchase) that will get worn more than once.  So, keeping this in mind, the outfits I show as examples will not only be easy on your wallet, but they'll also be comfortable and functional as well.

This week's Fashion Friday is all about the family and the upcoming season - FALL!  Everyone loves to have family portraits taken outdoors when the colors are vibrant and beautiful.  Long gone are the days where you have to wear white and khaki or be all matchy matchy.  Portraits look fabulous when beautiful bold colors are worn and outfits coordinate.

So, I know everyone and their brother owns denim jeans.   They've been worn, so you know they're comfortable.  Check that off your list of things you WON'T have to buy for your outfit.  Then, you're only left with coordinating tops.

Here's an example of a family donned in fabulous fall colors for their family portrait.  All outfits shown can be found at Gap and/or Old Navy.


Remember, this is just an EXAMPLE.  Love the look but don't like orange?  Substitute it for a lovely shade of green or maroon.  Think it will be too chilly for the little girl's top?  Throw a cute little denim jacket over it, and you're all set!

And, don't forget the accessories!!  Shoes are an important part of your outfit as well.  Make sure your shoes are clean and in good shape.  Girls can wear fun jewelry or bows to accent their outfits.  Just have fun with it!
