what to wear: pretty in pink | whitby family photography

The B family has an upcoming shoot this weekend and asked for suggestions on outfits for their family- mom, dad, 7 year old daughter and twin 4 year old girls!  Mom sent me a couple of options.  And I have to say, as a mom of four, I’m a HUGE proponent of shopping your closets first and working with some items you already have and love!  Affordable and something you know your kids are comfortable in.  Then fill in gaps as needed.  One option was a denim summer dress for older sister and white summer dresses for younger girls.  This would no doubt look lovely, and if she tended to decorate with a palette of neutrals the colour scheme would lend itself well to a large canvas of a family portrait in their living room.  BUT the other option was what I like to call pretty in pink.  The plan is to shoot at a local park which will have lots of greenery so the shades of pink for the girls will really help them pop and stand out against the natural backdrop and make for really stunning images.

I put together a What to Wear inspiration board for the family to give them some ideas for how they could style their wardrobe for our session.  Mom and Dad in more neutral sand and blue tones with the floral scarf to incorporate the pinks really put the focus on the girls while keeping the family a cohesive unit.  The gold shoes and accessories give the pop of sparkle and shine that will add some zing and personality.  So excited for this shoot!

Thanks for stopping by!  And be sure to come back and check out their images in a couple weeks!
