The holiday season is a time for making memories, and what better way to preserve those moments than with a beautiful family photo? Whether you're planning to use these photos for Christmas cards, as festive decorations, year-round displays, or thoughtful gifts, getting your outfits just right can make all the difference. And if you're in the Savannah, Georgia area, this year, I have several options for you for fall and Christmas. Whether you are preparing for Fall at Woodlawn, the Christmas Tree Farm, Holly Oaks on the Marsh, Santa Sessions at Holly Oaks on the Marsh, or Christmas on the Bluff, there are some additional considerations to keep in mind. Let's dive into the art of outfit planning for your mini-session!
- Coordinated, Not Matching - Gone are the days of everyone wearing the same color and style. Instead, opt for coordinating colors and complementary styles. Think about the color palette you want to use - traditional reds and greens, elegant whites and metallics, or something entirely unique. Coordinate colors that work well together, keeping in mind the backdrop at Holly Oaks on the Marsh.
- Seasonal Accessories - Accessories can take your holiday photos to the next level. Consider scarves, hats, mittens, or even festive jewelry. These little touches can add warmth and personality to your photos.
- Layers and Textures - Layering can add depth and interest to your family's outfits. Try incorporating sweaters, cardigans, or vests for a cozy look. Mixing textures, like knits, flannels, and velvet, can create a visually appealing ensemble.
- Dressing for the Setting - Think about and take into account the beautiful natural backdrop. Earthy tones like deep greens, rich browns, and soft blues can complement the scenery. Neutral colors like cream, beige, and even pastels can contrast beautifully with the green of trees and create a rustic, cozy vibe. If your children are attending Santa Sessions at Holly Oaks on the Marsh, keep in mind that your little ones will be sharing the spotlight with Santa.
- If Attending Santa Sessions, Consider Santa's Colors - Since Santa will be in the frame, think about how his iconic red suit and white beard will play into your color scheme. You can either coordinate with these colors or choose contrasting tones to make everyone stand out.
- Timeless vs. Thematic - Decide whether you want your photos to have a timeless, classic look or if you'd like to embrace a specific holiday theme. Both options can be stunning, so go with what resonates most with your family's style.
- Trial Runs - Before the big day, have a dress rehearsal. Dress everyone up in their chosen outfits and make sure they're comfortable and happy. This will help avoid any last-minute wardrobe malfunctions or discomfort during the photo session.
- Don't Forget the Details - Pay attention to shoes, socks, and any visible undergarments. These details can often be overlooked but can make or break a well-put-together outfit.
- Professional Guidance - If you're unsure about your outfit choices, don't hesitate to contact me! Outfit planning is one of my favorite parts of getting ready for the session. I am happy to help, give you some insight, and ensure your outfits are camera-ready.
- Embrace the Holiday Spirit - Remember that these photos are meant to capture the joy and magic of the holiday season. Embrace the holiday spirit, and let your personalities shine through. Genuine smiles and laughter will make your photos truly memorable.
