I love having a share in creating beautiful Maui Photography. Especially when my clients come prepared, looking their best and ready to be photographed. They have done their homework on wardrobe and look great. Its also important to have a good style sense, or ask someone who does for their help. You will be glad you did. Here's 5 tips to keep in mind.
#1-Coordination is key! Everyone doesn't have to be in the same exact color, just make sure it flows well together. The same color palette or colors that complement each other. Like your home decor, each piece goes well with the other.
#2-Above all else, make sure you look and feel good in it. Don't compromise an outfit that coordinates well with the family but isn't flattering.
#3-My favorite colors for the beach is white or creams with soft pastel colors. Such as light blues, pinks, or greens. Stay away from dark colors. Go with light pastel colors instead.
#4-Wearing shorts or jeans for the ladies just doesn't look as nice as a classic dress. Guys can get away with khaki shorts but ladies look best in a cute dress.
#5-Avoid stripes, loud patterns, & prints. Yes, that's the typical Hawaiian print shirts & dresses. They are nice to take home but if you wear them in your pictures, its not flattering or eye appealing.
For Example: The guys could wear khaki slacks and a short sleeved white button up shirt. For the ladies, a simple sun dress is nice and flattering-see images below.
It may take some effort to dress up a little for your pictures, but it is well worth the effort! You will be very happy you did. :)

Here is a beautiful example of what to wear. I love their choice of colors and wardrobe for their Family Portraits! Light creams and white are perfect for the beach. A great wardrobe selection-a pretty cream dress for the ladies, khaki slacks with a white button up shirt for him, and a perfect white dress for their daughter. Add a beautiful Hawaiian touch with fresh flowers in their hair. Love it!! Are you trying to figure out your wardrobe for your pictures? Here is a great model below!
