What to Wear for Summer Photos

Do you have an upcoming family photography session this summer and are wondering what to wear for your summer photos? Look no further! Below you’ll find some of my top outfit choices and my biggest photographer tips to help make deciding what to wear for summer photos easy and breezy, despite the summer heat!

What to Wear for Summer Photos Tip 1:

Wear something lightweight! We all know that no matter where you live the summer heat can be sticky and stifling, especially with the Florida humidity! That’s why I suggest lightweight and comfortable clothes, especially for dads! Linen blend shirts and breathable fabrics are great choices for minimizing sweat and staying comfortable. Additionally, for moms and girls I always recommend flowing dresses to help you stay cool!

What to Wear for Summer Photos Tip 2:

Instead of what you should wear, here is a great example of what you shouldn’t wear – jeans! Jeans are some of the most uncomfortable clothing items you can wear if you are doing summer outdoor photos, especially in Florida! Instead, if someone in your family is wanting to wear pants I’d encourage khakis, performance pants such as these from Lululemon, or shorts instead!

What to Wear for Summer Photos Tip 3:

Summer photo sessions are a great time to embrace florals and fun colors, especially for an outdoor photography session at the beach or park! I’d encourage your family to look for fun patterns that you can mix and match. Remember, when coordinating outfits for your family you don’t need to “match” perfectly, instead focusing on making sure everyone looks like they “go” together!

What to Wear for Summer Photos Tip 4:

The last and arguably most important thing to wear for your outdoor photos this summer – sunscreen! In Florida no matter what time of day or what the location is it is nearly inevitable that we will have hot sunlight! I would definitely recommend that everyone in your family wears sunscreen to your summer photo session to make sure you don’t end the day with any sunburns!

I hope that you found these tips helpful as you start to plan your family’s wardrobe for your photos this summer! Of course, I’d love to partner with you for a summer session and offer all of my clients as much hand’s on styling assistance that they need! Additionally, all of my clients are welcome to borrow from my client wardrobe – just a few of the things I do to make preparing for your summer photos as easy and stress free as possible!
