How to dress for a black and white family portrait?

Book My FREE Consultation

Black and white photos have varying shades of grey so colour is still important in your family portrait. We want to accentuate your features and black and white photography makes it simple to do this. With no distracting colours to detract, you can capture the emotions and connections between people in a family portrait. See the few tips below to assist you with clothing options for a black and white family portrait session.

  • Colour is important because if you are wearing an emerald green top then this will be a darker grey than say a beige top.
  • Everyone should be wearing different coloured clothing or different shades of the colour so that there are varying shades of grey.
  • If you have a dark background for your family photography session then you should have lighter coloured clothing. If your family photography session has a light background then you should have darker coloured clothing.
  • Wear clothing that is logo and pattern free so that distractions don’t become an issue
