After you scroll through these photos I just took of Mellicia’s family, head over to her blog and read this: 5 Questions to Ask When Choosing What to Wear in Family Photos
On the morning of Mellicia’s family photo shoot, I was soooo beyond excited to see what she would be wearing when I showed up at the King Street Station in Pioneer Square. This family is stylist AF so my camera and I were EXCITED. Clothing makes a HUGE difference in family photos, taking images from good to great. Most of my clients take time to plan to outfits before their shoots, sometimes sending me photos of the clothes laid out on the bed the night before. I get lots of emails asking what to wear and my best advice to is to check out our outfit advice blog post, study photos on our blog and ask Mellicia at Poplin Style. haha
For Mellicia’s photos, I LOVED how her bright orange blouse brightened up all the photos, which were taken against monotone backgrounds (marble and cement). The boys were in rich dark blues which also made them POP off the lighter colored backgrounds.. Yummy for eyes because the clothing not only communicated this family’s individual style but it made them stand out. When taking photos, I’m always looking for ways to shine a spotlight on the people; sometimes it’s literally the light that is shining on them, making them brighter than everything else in the photo, sometimes it’s putting negative space around them so they are standing inside of a frame and sometimes it’s great outfits that catch us like eye-candy. Enjoy scrolling through the beautiful photo collection and seriously, email Mellicia if you want help with looking and feeling fabulous at your next photo shoot or just in life in general. She’s bomb and you can’t be around her for long before you feel bomb too! ;)
