what to wear on your Maui family photography shoot
on your Maui family photography session.
The best advice I can tell you is to show up as yourself.
You want your photos to be pretty and real. Not so real that they catch you in your yoga pants you are living in, but the real pretty you. On the beach, pastel or bright colors work well. Light cotton clothes, sundresses, t-shirts, shorts are easy to work with. Don’t try to match each other. Just try not to clash.
I advise against black or navy – its harsh in the bright sun – and also against the everyone wear white group shot. Be yourselves, just your best self.
For large groups, picking one or two main colors and having everyone choose their own clothes in those colors usually works well for a nicely coordinated but not matching look. Stripes, polka dots, plaid.. I love them all. The surf shops on Maui have a great variety of fun beach going clothes. Also, don’t be shy… want to wear bathing suits? feel free! If we are shooting on the beach, you will probably get at least your feet wet. Plan for sand and sea.
