For dark backgrounds – wear medium to dark tones of browns, blue, green, burgundy, and rust
For White backgrounds – wear ivory, tan, white, pastel colors — especially well for children
Never wear patterns, plaids, stripes, checks, or prints
Stay away from bright colors

Couples or small groups should wear the same or very similar colors. Couples should not wear light or dark tones together (one person in light colored clothing and the other in dark tones)

Families should wear solid colors in the same color range.
Environmental Family Portraits

Casual clothing is best in medium tones for outdoor portraits-
Blues are good all year; Ivory, khaki, salmon are beset in summer greens; medium tones, browns, burgundies, and grays are good choices for the fall color.
Solid colors in the same tones are best for any environmental portrait. These clothing choices will convey the “family” connection.
