In honor and celebration of my parent’s 30th wedding anniversary my siblings and I coordinated a family photoshoot. Inevitably, I was tasked to coordinate everyone! Despite being very opinionated and independent, they all were on board with my vision and suggestions.
Tips for Styling a Group
Styling a group of people can be difficult especially when a wide range of ages and personalities are involved. In order to ensure everyone looks good and feels comfortable keep it simple. For my family’s shoot I chose a color scheme I knew everyone looks good in, likes wearing, and likely already owns. I chose blue paired with white and tan as the neutrals to give a nod to spring.
- Choose a color scheme and use various shades of the main colors.
- Incorporate different textures and patterns to avoid being too “matchy.”
- Allow people’s personalities to shine through with accessories of their choosing. (Ex: my brother’s crazy socks!)
Styled to Perfection
Not to brag but I truly have the most perfect family in pictures and reality. We are not the Kardashians, for the laughter, love, and smiles pictured are genuine, not staged to generate popularity. I love my beautiful family, and I credit my loving parents and their strong marriage for my family’s happiness.
What I Wore
- Armani Dress
- Ivanka Trump Shoes
- Jewelry from various places
Single as a Pringle.
When it came time for couple photos and family “unit” photos, I took the spotlight by myself. I threw my head back in laughter because like Proverbs 31:25 says “I (she) am clothed with strength and dignity; I (she) can laugh at the days to come.” I think I rock being a Pringle.
End on a bang with the one that stole the show, looking cute, cool, and stylish. My 4 month old nephew Jack Reynolds.
