   What to Wear

We recommend you select a level of formality that best suits your family. Some will choose to wear full ‘black tie’ gowns and tuxes, while others will be more comfortable in business-casual attire, or even something more relaxed.

Think about where your family wants to take their portrait. Do they want to wear semi-formal attire or something more casual? Keep in mind that, since you’ll be documenting everyone in your family, they might not all choose to wear formal clothing. While having people dressed formally may look nice, it can cause some problems if you have someone in a t-shirt and shorts or a sundress trying to stand next to someone wearing a suit and tie. Just make sure you discuss what attire will be worn before taking your photos so there aren’t any surprises later on.
