Ahhh summer. It is a wonderful time of sun, tans, and family pictures! Here are some quick tips so you know exactly what you need to wear!

1.Start with 3 main colors
Start out by picking 3 colors that you really like and that complement each other well. Using more than 3 colors can be a little much. Below is a summer palette to give you some ideas. Think light and bright.

2. Coordinate but don't match
Gone are the days of jeans and white t-shirts. Photos come alive when the outfits are coordinated well and exciting. This means mixing and matching the 3 colors you picked out throughout your family.

3. Don't be afraid of pattern
Don't be afraid to add pattern but do keep it limited! Patterns add interest and depth. As long as it's kept to a select few it will work. Bonus if that pattern ties in all of the colors. Avoid logos and texts on your clothes.

4. Accessorize
Accessories, just like patterns, add interest and depth. Examples: jewelry, hats, hair accessories, and belts. Layers aren't just for winter and they really bring the picture to the next level without adding tons of crazy colors and prints.  Examples: scarves and cardigans. 

 
There you have some quick tips in your outfit planning. Above all be comfortable and be you!
