Your Summer Photo Session: Outfit Inspiration & What to Bring

So, you’ve booked your summer photo session. Yay! It’s so lovely to have some summer photos for your walls! What now? I know you’re busy, so I compiled some of my best tips and outfit inspiration to help get your ready!

How to prepare for your session:

  • Prep your kids in advance – here’s what we are doing, here’s how long the photos will take, why, incentives, what we are doing after, etc.
  • When choosing outfits, remember that coordination, not matching, is the key! I love mixing texture (denim and a light tee) and color! Here is some summer outfit inspiration! (Most outfits were pulled from Old Navy but are not available anymore – they are meant to be general ideas rather than specific items!)

What should you bring to your session? Here are my must haves:

  • sunscreen
  • bugspray
  • plenty of water
  • treats for incentives (for the kids, if that’s your style)
  • a blanket to sit on if desired (preferably neutral or coordinating with your outfits)

Hope this helps! Happy summer!
