What to Wear for Family Portraits : Tea Rose

Here is an idea for what to wear for spring portraits.

“Blushing shades of dusty pink and mauve are uppity and oh-so-cute against the moody grey skies of the cooler season. Leather footwear and chocolate accents ground the brighter pinks while adding natural textures to the overall look. “

What to Wear for Winter Family Portraits : Gray & Rhubarb

What to Wear for Winter Family Portraits : Gray & Rhubarb

Here is an idea for what to wear for winter (or fall) portraits.  I know this idea only shows adults clothing, but you can use the style and colors as a guideline for what to buy for kiddos, too. And many people who work at clothing stores LOVE to help you pull together outfits when you come in with an inspiration or guide image like this one.

And, if you are wondering who to dress first – it’s yourself, Mom. (Or Dad, if you are the one booking and organizing the shoot.) Then build everyone else’s outfits around yours.

Rhubarb

Rich rhubarb red is ready for Fall or Winter – a deep, complex tone that commands attention. This festive color is so powerful even a small accent of it, like a pair of shoes or wool scarf, is enough to add vibrance to the dullest of outfits and backgrounds.

A few days ago I shared 6 ideas for how to display your Denver family portraits. I just have to share this one more idea:

Idea for displaying Denver Child Model Portfolio Images

I have photographed this stylish child model two years in a row, so you are seeing photos from two different shoots, 1 year apart. I also did Headshots with Personality for her father.

I love how her super coolmom put together this wall collage of the portraits I made and art that her 3 yo daughter made! A perfect combo to celebrate her! Note how it looks great now, but also has room to add wall portraits from future shoots (like an all-family shoot). Thank you to my client for sending this iphone photo of their display wall.

Here is one of the photos up close, so you can get a good feel of the individual photos:

6 ideas for Wall Collections / Canvas Cluster Family Portraits

6 ideas for Wall Collections / Canvas Cluster Family Portraits

One of the hottest products right now are Wall Collections / Canvas Clusters for your Family Portraits. If you are wondering what that would look like, well you pick your favorite images, and then match them to a particular arrangement that fits your home and your space…and your personality!

Here are 3 different ideas for your Wall Collections/ Canvas Cluster Layouts.

#1:   Lots of wall space and you like things uniform:

Here is one example. It uses (8) 12 x 18″ canvas prints, and with a 1 inch gap, that’s a total wall space of 63″ x 31″. This one would work great if you have a good mix of horizontal and veritcal images you like. And, if you are someone who likes things all balanced and square. Well, technically “rectangle” in this case. This display has major WOW factor!

2. Lots of space, but you like things a bit more creative.

In this canvas cluster, there is more variety in each image’s size and the overall layout. This client has their images hanging in their beautifully-lit large foyer, so everyone who enters their home sees it first thing:

#3 – Simple, modern and elegant.

Those terms fit this client perfectly. She has a bright, modern house she designed herself. She picked her favorite images, had large canvases made, and they lean on a ledge in her stairway.

#5 – Over the mantle A

This is a great example of how to hang a wall display/cluster over a mantle. It’s balanced left to right, but has some added visual interest due to the different sizes and shapes. I don’t know if you can tell, but she even put the small squares are just a bit outside of the tall solo images of each girl. That gives it a certain “tension” that adds to the overall visual interest.

#5 – Over the mantle B (Plus, insight into how we design something you will love, and that will fit your space.)

I help my clients design their wall collections to fit both their personality, their space, and also their favorite images. It’s a blast, and my favorite part is to see them after they have been hung up in their home.

Here is what it looks like when client come in for their viewing session (held 2 weeks after their photo session), and I show them samples of their images in different arrangements. Sometimes the background is photos of their own home, and sometimes we use digital rooms to gets a sense of size and place:

#6 – Above a king bed, with a high ceiling

This client wanted to create a collage on a large wall in the master bedroom of their Fraser condo. You can see how the “mock-up” looked in a digital room, and then how the final product looked in their ski home.

6 ideas to display your winter park family photos

A special thanks to my clients who send me photos of their display after it goes up. (In the image first mantle photo, you can see her hammer is even still in the photo! 😉   It makes me sooo happy to see my art of your family up in your home. And, a suggestion to anyone who hires a professional photographer: send them a photo of their pieces up in your wall, or of your family gathered around the album. It will really make their day!

What to Wear for Winter Family Portraits : Sheepskin

Here is an idea for what to wear for winter portraits.

Warm, comfortable, subtle – sheepskin evokes the best part of cooler weather. Incorporating sand tones into your wardrobe adds a calming, natural touch. Sheepskin accents like boots and slippers provide wonderful texture to your images and keep your toes toasty!

Sisters

I love photographing sisters. There is something so special about their connection. These images are from a shoot a while back, I just didn’t get around to blogging them until now.

I love how the mother styled everyone, and the pop of red in her scarf.

See how I also photographed just mom and dad? That’s super important – to capture and honor all the unique connections and relationships within a family.

I also love how the golden fall leaves create a visual frame around them:

I love taking photos of families reading their favorite book. It’s something that will always be meaningful to them (“remember how you used to love that Dr Suess book?”), and it gives us very natural expressions from everyone, as they focus on the book, each other, and (almost) forget I’m there.
