DOWNES FAMILY: A SOFT BLUE COLOR PALETTE
Family portraits are a seasonal part of my business that I really enjoy! And more often than not, I'm photographing families year after year that have become friends! This is the case for Ashley and her family, one of the first families I ever photographed when I moved to Charleston.
This year I had the pleasure of photographing her sweet family again, and the photos were simply charming! Often families ask how to dress for photos and I thought that I would share how this color scheme works so well. Ashley chose a light blue color to play off of, and selected the outfits in complementary shades and colors. White and soft pink were included in the girls' dresses and mom's pants, keeping in the scheme but keeping away from being too matchy matchy. I also recommend that women wear heels, if they are comfortable wearing them. Why? Because when we slip on a pair of heels we automatically stand and feel different, and this translates on camera. These are just a couple of tips - and I of course will provide outfit ideas to anyone that asks!
