Style Guide for Families

Your style questions answered.

You want to look like yourself on your best day, and not look like you tried too hard. Think timeless & classic with a twist. Clothes should make a person feel comfortable & confident. We all enjoyed the leisure pandemic-wear, let's step it up a notch for the photos.
Look around you for color inspiration. Lean towards complimenting colors, instead of matching outfits, and please avoid logos.
No stress. I want everyone to feel relaxed and natural as much as possible. Don't expect everyone to be on their best behavior - they won't and it's fine.
The more relaxed you are, the smoother it will go. Be you and allow others to be themselves!
Your family is unique and I want to capture your story & the moments you share together.
