Children are adorable in anything. Little boys can wear rolled up jeans with no shirts to smart little casual wear with hats and accessories. Simple and solids are the best but if you let them pick out their outfits, they'll be happier showing it off in the sessions. Girls have a wide variety of options from wild and crazy colors to sassy outfits that can make their little faces shine. Accessories are a MUST!
Families must be a little more organized. Pay close attention to solids and matching shades. There's nothing you would be more unhappy about later than to see yourself in stripes, dad in checks, sis in prints, and brother in worded shirts. The viewer of your portraits would be looking at the chaos of your clothing and not at your beautiful faces. Stick with blacks, browns, reds, blues. Experiment with the girls wearing similar clothing and the boys wearing similar. Don't forget similar shoes if possible. Ask Debbie if you doubt your own ideas.
