My Top Tips For Creating a Timeless Look

Styling is an important aspect to family photos, but it is one that can create a lot of stress. I have come up with some tips that can help make it easier! When there are multiple kids and family members to coordinate- how do you make it look cohesive, without too “matchy”? Read on for my favorite tips!

  • I recommend that mom plans her outfit first, and from there create a color palette. It can be overwhelming when there are a lot of people to coordinate, so start small, and build from there.

  • Avoid busy prints, bright colors, and logos. You want photos to transcend time, not to be a reminder of long gone fashion trends! Keep things timeless and classic, to ensure your photos will look great in years to come.

  • Muted colors photograph best. Deep rich tones, or varying neutrals also are classically beautiful!

  • When using color, use 3-4 colors (at most) in your palette. This will ensure variety and and unique look, without all looking the same!

I share these tips and more in my welcome guide, once you book with me. I am always available for styling guidance, and encourage you to reach out with any questions. I want planning to be as smooth and stress free as possible!


I wholeheartedly believe in the power of authentic documentation. Our stories and truths are not only a gift for ourselves, but also through the generations, becoming treasured keepsakes as proof of our place and time. My passion lies in storytelling that focuses on your present moments. Whether our adventures take us deep into the Hudson Valley, high in the Catskill Mountains, or within the comfort of your home, it is always about where you are meant to be and where you feel the most alive.
