Top Five Clothing Tips for Your Family Beach Photos on Hilton Head
Hilton Head Family Photographers
Family beach portraits on Hilton Head are fun and laid back sessions. We want you to be as comfortable as possible and enjoy your portrait session with your Hilton Head Photographer. Below are our top five clothing tips for an enjoyable beach session.
Wear Comfortable Clothing to your Hilton Head Beach Session
When you are comfortable in your clothing it shows, and vice versa. We want your family photographs to be remembered as a fun time with our Hilton Head Photographers. Wear clothing that makes you happy and relaxed during your beach session. If the clothing doesn't feel right, don't wear it.
Coordinate Your Clothing Selection
Photographs look best when everyone is dressed in similar tones. We recommend using two to three colors amongst family members when choosing your outfits for beach portraits.
Solid Colors Are Best
Solid colors are always best. Khaki and white as well as blue tones are classic beach portrait colors but are not required. Seasonal colors can work too! Avoid patterns of all kinds as well as logos. Solid muted colors also help your Hilton Head photographer capture family pictures that draw the attention of the viewer to the subjects face rather than the clothing. Check out Pinterest for some clothing palettes for your inspiration.
Cover Those Shoulders
Everyone looks better in family beach portraits with clothing that covers the shoulders. Clothing with sleeves is always best. It may not be as trendy as strapless or thin straps but is visually more appealing. Bare shoulders can make a woman appear larger. Uncovered shoulders also draw attention away from the face and expression of the subjects. This also ensures those unwanted tan or burn lines are concealed in your portrait.
Coordinate Your Underwear
Yes, you read that correctly...however we mean in terms of color. You want to ensure that your underwear is not visible from under your clothing especially if it is lightweight material, like linen. This is important to remember when you are wearing white clothing in your beach portrait. Choose tan or white underwear and also purchase baby bloomers or diaper covers for your little ones.
