Are you planning your cherry blossom family photos for this year and unsure what to wear?! I’ve got you covered, friend! As a Virginia family photographer, I spend lots of time styling my clients’ outfits to make sure they not only coordinate with each other but complement their surroundings! So, if you’re on the hunt for those perfect outfits for your cherry blossom family photos, keep reading!
When deciding on what to wear for your cherry blossom family photos, it’s important to keep in mind that during full bloom, the flowers are soft pink. They aren’t too bright and bold, and their soft color in nature is the perfect backdrop for all sessions.
Neutral Cool Tones
Find outfits that are neutral and have cool tones. Think whites, beige, pinks, soft pastel blues, and pastel lavenders. You don’t want any bright colors like neon red or neon orange. Try to avoid deep, dark colors like black or dark purple. Keep your colors soft and pastel-like to complement those cool pink cherry blossom tones!
Since we are wanting to take full advantage of the gorgeous cherry blossoms, try to avoid any large, harsh patterns. Stay away from bold graphic tees or outfits with large logos. Minimal patterns, solid pastel colors, and soft, small logos will work best!
Where To Shop
Now comes the fun part! And remember, you absolutely do not NEED to buy anything for your cherry blossom family photos. I am absolutely positive you have something in your closet that would perfectly coordinate and complement the gorgeous blooms. But, in the event you want to purchase something new, here are a few ideas!
- For Mama: Baltic Born has a great selection of dresses in all lengths! Here is a gorgeous maxi dress, perfect to complement others.
- For the Kids: Luckily, there are TONS of great places to shop for the cutest clothes for your kiddos. Old Navy, Zara, and H&M are great places to find those closet staples that can be used more than once!
This family absolutely crushed their outfits for their family session! It definitely helps that their Mama is a photographer, LOL. Nonetheless, their outfits were SO cute and perfectly complemented the cherry blossoms. I’ve been lucky enough to document this family multiple times, and each time it just feels like we are all playing together and having so much fun. This Mama was celebrating her birthday, so, of course, I had to add some confetti to this session!
Being a Virginia family photographer, I’ve been lucky enough to document so many incredible families in the gorgeous cherry blossoms year after year! Hopefully, this will get your wheels turning as you prepare for your cherry blossom family photos. And remember, have fun and enjoy the moments with your loved ones!
