Meet Tony! This is my second time photographing him. Isn’t he a cutie? His parents came to me because they wanted some portraits done to use for their Christmas cards. They weren’t sure what they wanted or what he should be wearing. His parents had already looked at my Christmas card designs and had picked a design that I knew using a simple white background would look best with. I suggested that Tony dress in Red, Green or Black. His mom found this outfit at a local store and knew it would be perfect!
HELPFUL TIPS & TRICKS:
One of the things I always tell my clients is that it is very important to keep in mind where and what the photos will be used for. If you are going to be hanging a portrait in your home, its important to look at your decor. Is your home decorated in bright colors or more neutral colors? If its neutral colors and you choose to wear neon colors in your family portraits, they will look out of place hanging in your home and you won’t be nearly as pleased with them. So try to make sure the colors of your clothes go with the color scheme of your home.
If you’ll be using a portrait strictly for greeting cards, holiday cards or announcements, keep the colors and outfits as simple as possible. Think of the design and colors they’ll be used with. If you choose a pink Christmas card design but you are wearing a blue dress with yellow polka dots, it’s not going to look as nice as say a white dress with a smaller pink pattern will.
