Start with Mom. Dresses for Mom that flow and are light-colored compliments well with a beach photoshoot. All other outfits will revolve around the color scheme and feel of Mom’s attire. Most Dads will be able to match her with a neutral button-down shirt or polo shirt.
The key is a matching color pallet but not everybody wearing the exact same color. For big families, avoid dressing all the boys in the same shirt and all the girls in the same dresses. We want texture and a slightly different shade but in the same color pallet. This is where a photographer like myself, who can differentiate which shades of color goes well together, would be able to guide you.
My Favorite Places To Find Mom’s Outfits for a Beach Photoshoot:
1. The Baltic Born
My client closet includes many of their maternity and studio dresses. They have great quality, beautiful flow, and photographs wonderfully.
2. Morning Lavenderhttp://morninglavender.com/discount/KawadaPhotography – discount code MLJARDIN, you receive a total
of 20% off.
Another win in my book. Great quality and photographs beautifully. Styles are elegant and flowy.
Recently they have been over the top, but sometimes you can find really cute original pieces.
4. Vici Collection
Select pieces from Vici would work well for beach photoshoots.
5. Rent the Runway
When you can’t find anything to buy, you can always rent!
