Thanks for dropping in to check out the answer to one of life's most poignant questions.... "What should I wear for my professional family portraits?"

We always recommend these TWO things when people ask what to wear for their shoot...

1. Choose outfits that are clean and simple

  • busy patterns can be very distracting so plain is best but the use of layers and textured fabrics can look great
  • 'complimentary' clothing for everyone is good (ie similar colours/styles) but the matchy-matchy (all dressed the same) look is a bit dated
  • bare feet is often more practical so give those toe nails some love before you get here ;)

2. Bring a few outfits for the kids

  • this is good to change up the look, and really personalise your images
  • handy in case there is a messy accident ;)
  • clothing can sometimes be used to tell us about their personality or interests

3. (Yes I know I said 2 before but this is important too) RELAAAAAAAXX

  • don't stress - it makes wrinkles
  • you have to dress to be compfortable and to truly reflect who you are
  • if it all gets too hard just throw some things and suitcase and we'll figure it out when you get here!

Dean is amazing!! My son HATES having his photo taken, for five years he has been missing from all photos. From our first meeting with Dean we all felt relaxed and comfortable, even my son, who would never admit it but had fun. We included the family dog and now have so many perfect memories that will last another five years! Thanks Dean you truly have a great tallent.

"Why did I get this little business card thing from Lauren + Sam?" That's another great question! Just like Lauren + Sam, we are a small 100% Tasmanian family business that strives to serve Tasy families by providing them with top shelf quality products and service. Our studio is about a 20 second walk around the corner from the shop and we like to support each other by telling people about our businesses.
