LITTLE NEST PORTRAITS
Start with a neutral base Neutrals and soft tones are timeless and will go beautifully wherever you choose to display your images.
ď€´ most blues and greens also read as neutrals.
Soft blues, navy,
chambray, soft greens and olive tones are
all great base colors
that will blend nicely
together and offer a bit of visual interest.
WEAR WHAT FEELS GOOD for everyone To do this, dress your family in outfits that go together but arenâ€™t identical.
ď€ľ GET THE BEST RESULTS
We find that a
combination of medium toned
neutrals tends to provide the best result.
ï€µ CLOTHING SHOULD FIT WELL AND BE TAILORED. Overly baggy clothing
will not be flattering to you or your family.
Start with a neutral base Wear clothes that make you feel great and choose colors that you receive a lot of compliments on.
ď€ľ use accent colors If you are
interested in incorporating color, think
about where you will display the images, and consider using color as the accent. You can
start with a neutral base and incorporate an accent to brighten the image.
ď€ś bright accents You can use a deep toned color and then
use varied intensities of the same tone throughout.a neutral base and incorporate an accent to brighten the image.
ď€ľ BE BOLD. You
can go all out and
be bold! A bright
and bold color will
look fantastic when set against creamy backgrounds:
ď€ľ build a palette from a favorite print or pattern. Dress one family member in a bold & colorful pattern. Then pull the
colors f rom the pattern as the palette for the rest of the family.
DONâ€™ T BE AFRAID OF PATTERNS As you can see in this sibling photo, patterns can add a wonderful pop of color, inspiration, and variety!
ï€¶ FIND BALANCE BY ADDING IN SOLIDS The key is to pair patterns with solids in an effort to keep the image pulled together and not chaotic.
HAVE FUN! At the end of the day, clothes are just another part of the scenery. The true focus of your portrait session is the joy, love, and connections between you and your family members. So on session day, come relaxed, have fun, and make some memories!
