Get ready to discover top summer style tips that will transform your images into cherished keepsakes!


Here are some top summer-style tips for your family photography session at JCPenney Portraits:

  1. Embrace vibrant colors: Add playful touches of vivid hues like various shades of blue, teal, and turquoise. Pair them with accent colors like salmon, mustard, ruby, or wine.
  2. Create a color palette: Instead of matching outfits, choose a complementary color palette. For example, if your main colors are teal, salmon, and white, ensure each family member’s outfit fits within this palette.
  3. Celebrate Summer Femininity: Dress up mom and daughters in summer dresses or pair blouses with colorful skirts. Floral fabrics can also work well as long as they’re not too busy.
  4. Play up guys’ wear: Fathers and sons can embrace the easy-breezy summer style with polo-style shirts or rolled-up, three-quarter length sleeves on button-up shirts. Khakis or dark-colored denim make great pant choices.
  5. Add accessories: Personalize outfits with accessories like hats, watches, suspenders for guys, and statement necklaces or earrings for moms. Fun headbands are a great option for daughters.
  6. Choose summer shoes: Consider footwear for full-length poses. Sandals like wedges for women and strappy sandals for girls work well. For men, loafers provide a casual yet put-together look.


Remember, these tips will help you create a summer-inspired style for your family photography session, capturing lasting memories of your warm and vibrant moments together.
