Raleigh Family Photography | Spring Family Photos

I had a wonderful time photographing the Mccabe family this Spring! The session took place at the Black River Trail in NY, before my relocation to Raleigh NC. Spring is one of my favorite seasons! The light is so beautiful and the budding flowers look so nice in photos. I can’t wait for this Spring to roll around in NC for some lovely Raleigh Family Photography!

My approach as a Raleigh Family Photographer is to capture your unique relationships within your family. In addition to full family images, I always break everyone up into smaller groups to capture those connections.

I love capturing sweet moments between mom and baby during newborn sessions. This mama requested a light and airy setup in the Cary photo studio for her mommy and baby images.

Dress to Impress for your Photo Session: Dos and Don’ts

As a Raleigh Family Photographer, a lot of people ask me about what they should wear for their photography shoots. I’m glad they do, because it really is quite important to getting amazing photographs. If you’re unsure how to dress for your photos, here is a list of Dos and Don’ts to think about when you are deciding what to wear for your photo session!

  • Firstly, DO think about your clothing choices! It makes a big difference in the overall effect of the photograph.
  • DO dress like yourself. You don’t want to look like another person in your photos, and you want your clothing style to reflect your personality.
  • DO dress comfortably, especially if it is an informal shoot. If you don’t feel comfortable and confident in your clothes, it will come through in your photos.
  • DON’T be afraid of patterns! But DO pair them with solids.

  • DON’T forget about your shoes (and sometimes socks)! They will make an appearance, so make sure they match your clothes. Avoid tennis shoes.
  • DO consider the season. Bright pops of color tend to look best in Summer, while earthy tones look best in Autumn and Winter. Light and muted pastels look lovely in Springtime.

These bold pops of color look great with the vibrant greens of Summer!

  • DO think about your location. If you are taking photos where there is a lot of green grass and green trees and green bushes, your colors will need to compliment that. If you are in the forest in Autumn, your colors need to coordinate with the earthy browns and oranges.
  • DO put thought into your accessories. Necklaces, headbands, earrings, and/or bracelets really add a little somthin’-somethin’ to your overall image. Scarves (solid or print!) can add a splash of color to your photos. However, if you have a baby, avoid fragile necklaces and earrings. We all know they are just going to end up in baby’s fists! 😉
  • Ladies! DO pay attention to the neckline of your shirt and where your bra-straps are. You don’t want to constantly be adjusting yourself, especially during the fun candid shots.
  • DO coordinate with your partner/family members, but DON’T be too matchy-matchy. You are each your own person, let that shine through in your clothing choices!

These beautiful Fall tones all coordinate without matching too much.

 
  • DON’T be afraid to purchase new clothing and accessories for your photoshoot. Shop online boutiques, and head to your favorite store! You will feel confident and fashionable in your new clothes, which will show in your photos, and it gives you the opportunity to really find coordinating clothing for everyone. Remember, anything you can do that helps improve the final image and your overall satisfaction is WORTH IT (plus, you’ll get a snazzy new outfit out of it)!
