So it was that time….time to get my 1 year olds pictures – Yikes! My 2 year olds pictures- double yikes!!! And my 9 year old’s….you would think she was the easy one, but girls at 9 already start being difficult about what you want them to wear, how they should smile, etc….
So our amazing photographer Jennifer Ketchum managed to pull a couple cute pic’s from each of my loves! Thank you!
I get asked all the time about picking kids clothes for pictures and I thought you might enjoy reading how I decide. First I pick something that has the colors I am looking to capture, Second I think of what will stay in place during the photo’s, Third I go with something a little unique…maybe not something they wear everyday. I like to have special outfits for pictures. I think another key with picking clothes is layering and then mixing patterns, large and small scale look great together. If you have multiple children I am not into making them all match, but go together. There is a difference between completely matching the kids and coordinating colors and patterns…I think it is important to use large and small scale patterns.
I have been hired to pick outfits for families and would love to consult with you on your family pictures. Please contact me for pricing and availability. You do not have to live near me I am able to help you via email as well.
Jennifer Ketchum is a local photographer in the Grand Rapids/Holland/Zeeland area. She is amazing, she has done our wedding pictures, family pictures a couple of times and pictures of the kids. I highly recommend her. She has recently established a studio that is full of great props/furniture and back drops. It was so fun have ing the kids pictures taken in the new studio.
