How to Plan Your Backyard Family Session

Picking the best spot

Your backyard might be more versatile than you think. Look for spots with even shade, as it provides the most flattering light. Morning or late afternoon are usually the best times for natural light. Also, consider the background, a nice greenery or a textured wall can add a lot to the photos. Don’t forget to declutter the chosen spot!

Planning Your Wardrobe:

  1. Wardrobe plays a significant role in the overall look of your photos. Here are some tips for planning your wardrobe:
  • Coordinate, but don’t match: Choose a color palette and select outfits that coordinate but are not too matchy. This will create a cohesive look without being too uniform.
  • Consider the setting: Choose outfits that complement your backyard setting. Neutrals and pastels often work well with natural backgrounds.
  • Be comfortable: Choose outfits that you and your family feel comfortable in. If you feel good, it will show in the photos.
  • Think about movement: Our style is playful and dynamic, so consider outfits that allow for movement and play.

Things to Bring or Use in Your Session:
