What To Wear For Your Family Photos| Philadelphia family photographer

What To Wear For Your Family Photos

For months you have been saying that you need to make a appointment to get some updated family photos. There is  sports schedules, homework, birthday parties, after school clubs, etc… and that is just your kids schedule. So finding the time for family photos can be a chore in itself.  So now you have scheduled your family photos you can breath a sigh of relief because its done and then you realize that scheduling the appointment wasn’t actually the hard part. Because now you have to pick outfits for you entire family. Outfits that photograph well, ones that you like and most importantly ones that your kids like and everyone feels comfortable in. As a family photographer in Philadelphia for several years  I know what really works when planning your families outfits.

1.Wear comfortable clothes, that you make you feel good .  Do a trial run wear the outfits out to dinner one night see how they feel, if they feel uncomfortable it will show in pictures.

This pretty lady is a fashionta she loves dresses and matching headbands she felt so good in this outfit and it radiates through the pictures

2.Coordinate colors  I recommend coordinating two-three muted solid colors with your family members. The photos will look much more visually appealing then if everyone decided to wear the exact same outfit. I have put together a Pinterest board of outfit ideas to give you some suggestions you can find that HERE!

What I love about this families outfits is the purple is worked into each person outfits so differently.  Mom matched the girls purple dress with her scarf and dads collared shirt under his sweater.

3. Accessories can be used to add a pop of color or to match other family members outfits

I love how she matched her necklace and belt to her husbands shirt. They are matching and it is so subtle

Here is another great example of accessories adding some color. She wanted navy blue but loved the pink in her daughters dress so she added a cute headband to her daughter and she wore a necklace and it gave their outfits a small pop of color without over doing it.

4. Textures and layers can add some depth to your pictures without taking the attention away from your family

This beautiful momma has texture in her sweater but also added texture in her layered sweater as well. So she went with solid muted colors but added some depth dimension to her outfit with some texture and a layer. Then her handsome son’s sweater has some really great texture and then layered a sweater with a collared shirt gives his outfit depth.

If you have any questions or would like helping planning your families outfits post in the comments below I would love to help!

 

I look forward to talking with everyone!!

xoxo,

Jackie

Fairmount Park Family Photos |Philadelphia PA Photographer | Jocelyn

For as long as I can remember photography has always been so important to me even way before I had any idea that I wanted to be a photographer. Time goes by so quickly, documenting your family and your life is so important having the memories to go back and look at is such a treasure. I have been searching Philadelphia for a while now for charities that my family and I could donate family photography sessions to. I came across The Gold Hope Project and instantly feel in love with their message. They are a non profit organization that works with photographers to gift free family photos to families battling a pediatric cancer diagnoses. The families that are going through these diagnosis are going through so many things and gifting them with some time to hang out, take some pictures and just spend some time being a family and not worry about anything.

Jocelyn’s story began when she was just two years old when she had turned completely yellow (Jaundice) and that is when her mom knew that something was wrong and that is the moment that their life changed. This amazing family spent the next 12 months in a long hospital stay with Jocelyn fighting Pancreatic Blastoma. Over the last 17 years she has undegone a 12 hour whipple procedure, chemo, radiation, numerous surgeries and has had 4 relapses. She struggles on a daily basis but this amazing girl and her family face every struggle with a smile and as a solid united front.

On a beautiful warm summer evening my husband and I met Jocelyn and her amazing mother and went down to Fairmount Park  in Philadelphia to take some beautiful photos. Jocelyn is really the definition of strength, this beautiful fighter has gone through so much and she refuses to let it slow her down or keep her from living every day with the biggest smile and laughing non stop. I had so much fun during our session it was like we had known each other for years. We chatted and laughed the entire time, the highlight of my evening was when we got the gold glitter out for jocelyn to blow for a fun picture. She could not contain her laughter she was laughing so hard, I don’t know how I was able to hold the camera still because I was laughing so hard as she attempted to blow the glitter in between laughing fits.

I have posted a few of my favorite images below it was so hard to narrow down to a few because I loved them all! How stylish is this beautiful girl a headband to match every outfit and a lemonade bandana to match her Alex’s Lemonade Stand Shirt. I am so grateful that I was chosen to be her families photographer they have become such a huge part of my life since our first meeting. At the bottom of the blog you can leave some love in the comment field for one of the bravest young ladies I know she would really love to read them. Jocelyn I am a better person for knowing you and you have changed my life so much in the short amount of time we have known each other <3.

Philadelphia Extended Family Photos | Philadelphia Family Photographer | Satterfield Family

As a photographer I have had the opportunity to photograph families in some very beautiful places in Philadelphia. The Satterfields home is a photographers dream landscaped perfectly with amazing flowers, trees and many more beautiful things.  The options of backdrops for their families photos were over flowing which made me so excited!

I was contacted by dad a couple months ago because he wanted to plan a family session with all of his kids, their spouses and grandkids as a surprise for mothers day for his wife. It was the sweetest thing and I loved how he was so careful to ask every question and pay attention to every detail down to coordinating outfits so that this was perfect for his beautiful wife.The Satterfield family was so fun and laid back, they made my job so easy and fun. I am in love with every picture form this session and had such a hard time narrowing down which ones to post in this blog.

I hope you enjoy reading this blog and love the pictures as much as I do. If you do leave some love in the comment field below the family and I would love to read them. I have fallen in love with extended family photos I think that they are such a treasure for your children and grandchildren to have for years to come. If you would like to see another extended family session that I photographed you can click here!

Chestnut Hill College Maternity Photos | Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Dan and Ashley

I feel so lucky to be a Maternity photographer in The city of Philadelphia. The options for locations for these Maternity photos in Philadelphia were endless. Chestnut Hill College was so amazing for this beautiful couple and their maternity photos.  Chestnut Hill College was absolutely beautiful and so much fun exploring the campus with this beautiful parents to be!

I love when my clients bring in items that are special to them to be included in the session. It just adds such a personal touch to the pictures and makes them a little more special to the clients. This beautiful Momma is a school teacher and books are very important to her. So they will play a big part in this families life so I couldn’t think of anything better then doing pictures with books. I love how they came out, they are so adorable.We also did a picture with a personalized onesie  that I think came out beautifully. Chestnut Hill College really supplied us with so many options and we were able to get beautiful pictures. I have posted a few of my favorite below, if you like them as much as I do leave some love in the comment field. This beautiful couple and I would love to read them.
