Fashion Friday | Kansas City Area Photographer

When planning for their sessions, a lot of families ask me for suggestions on clothes. My advice is 1) Wear what makes you feel comfortable. 2) Keep the patterns to one person and use the colors from that outfit to coordinate the others. 3) If possible, avoid lots of white. While it goes with everything, it's not always flattering on everyone and has a tendency to take on the color of your surroundings. 4) Wear colors from the same color family (all jewel tones or all pastels, etc.) and colors that you like.

I know most of you would like to use things that you already have, so these posts are to give you ideas on different color combinations, styles and ways to coordinate your existing clothes. If you do want to do some shopping though, the locations will be listed. 🙂

Today's entry is for a family of 4 with two girls (although the navy blue top and white shorts idea could be used for a boy). You'll notice that everyone has solid colored clothes that are pulled from the colors in the dress. Add some fun sandals and jewelry to complete the outfits.
