Dress for success: What to wear to your 30a Family Photo Shoot

As a 30A Family photographer, we photograph 100's of families each year on the beach. Some families choose to wear pastels and soft colors, while others love the feeling of a casually carefree vibe. No matter your preference, please keep these tips in mind when choosing what to wear for your 30A family photo session.

When you book your family photo session with Melonie Marie Photography, we are here every step of the way! We love to help you plan and coordinate the perfect vibe for your family session. Feel free to contact us by phone or text at (850) 460-4437 or by email at for more information.

What to Wear: Blue, pink, white

Rule #1: Coordinate—but don’t be matchy/matchy

If you’re shooting with another person, make sure your outfits complement one another’s. Choose a consistent color palette (which does not mean the same color). If someone is wearing a bold pattern, dress the rest of the group in more solids, but be sure each carries one or more colors from the “star” outfit for consistency.

Rule #2: Accessorize!

Scarves, hats, bows, bands…it all adds a fun twist to an otherwise “standard” look. Accessories are also a great place to coordinate looks. For example, if Mom is wearing a bright pattern with lavender, pink and gray, little brother can rock a pair a gray sneakers while Dad can choose a lavender vest and big sis with a pink headband.
