Styling Guide For Spring Mini Sessions
When was the last time you updated your family photos? Has it been a while? I see you over there, mama. And I know figuring out what your family should wear for pictures more often than not feel like pulling teeth. I am here to make styling spring minis for your family photos a little bit easier with a styling guide just for you!
I see you, scrolling through Pinterest and Instagram, looking for inspiration for your family photos. All of these families seem perfectly styled, makeup done, not a hair out of place, dad looks happy to be there, and their kids are perfectly coordinated with one another.
Can I really be her?
Can I really get photos like that of my family?
What colors should we wear?
Should we match or just coordinate?
Can I really get the look of those family photos I see all over Pinterest and Instagram?
I am here to tell you, spoiler alert — YES. YES YOU CAN.
Enter Spring Mini Sessions 2022. We are scouting out the apple blossoms this year, and I am so excited to share their magic with all of you. Keep scrolling to see your styling guide for spring minis this year!
Picture this: beautiful morning sunlight in a grove of apple blossom trees, you and the people you love most running around under pink petals and having a fun Saturday date while I just third wheel with my camera. Doesn’t that sound so beautiful?
Come take in the magic with me and run around the pink trees and have some fun!
Your Styling Guide for Spring Mini Sessions
First, always look for pieces that coordinate well together instead of trying to match everyone in the same thing.
Dress Mom First
Dress mom first. What you wear during your photos will set the tone for how the rest of your family dresses. While you’re out shopping, look for longer dresses that have movement in the skirt. If it’s long and flowy, I can guarantee it will move well during your photo session.
Coordinate with kids
Next, dress your kiddos! When choosing a color palette, I recommend choosing colors that accent well with your outfit. Reds and pinks pop with greens. Orange will pop against navy. Purple against yellow. Once you have your color palette in mind, pick outfits for your kids in coordinating colors with pieces that make their personality shine through.
Dress Dad Last
Finally, tell dad to throw on some dress pants or khakis and hand him a shirt to wear! I’ve included some casual options as well as a few more formal shirts. We all know what the weather in Wisconsin can be like during Spring.
Speaking of — Spring Mini Sessions are being moved! It seems the trees are blooming late this year. Sunday May 22 is our new Mini Session Day. Have you booked your session yet? Get in touch and let’s get you in the books!
