WHAT TO WEAR
FOR YOUR PHOTOSHOOT IN EDMONTON ALBERTA
Coordinate VS. Matching
Don’t pick out the exact same outfit for each family member. Instead, find complementary colours and styles that flow well together.
I like to follow this rule "Pick 3 base colours and 1 pop colour" and build your outfits with this in mind.
POP: Rose Gold
3. Navy blue
POP: Mustard yellow
PRO TIP: Plan together! This is the best way to ensure everyone is on the same page.

Light And Bright, Anything Goes!
Don’t be afraid of a little color! You don’t have to go overboard, but picking up bold colors from a more subtle outfit for a pop of color can look amazing. For example, if dad is wearing a plaid shirt, draw one color from it and have one child wear a pop of that color.
Deep, Dark And Rich Colours With A Pop!
If wearing a coat, keep it classy. Think classic tailored wool coat, peacoat, tweed coat or leather jacket. I highly recommend that you don’t wear ski jackets, sports jackets, bomber jackets, parkas, and old coats in general. If you choose not to wear a winter coat, I suggest that you layer up to keep warm.
Be Ready For Mud! This Means Closed Toed Shoes & Avoid White Bottoms! Light Pastel Colours And A Splash Of Denim!
Flats or Heals
I love warm and neutral color schemes for family photos – with a touch of color. Peach or any pastel is perfect for spring. Layering is a great way to add some versatility to your look.
Earth Tones, Deep And Dark Colour Palettes. Think All Natural Beauty!
Tan & Browns
Earthy colour palettes of denim, creams, greys, oranges, mustards and plums look amazing! Choose a base colour (say denim and cream) and an ‘accent’ colour, maybe mustard or burgundy will always look great!
