Selecting the proper clothing for your family portrait is vital. There are two important things to keep in mind. First, where in your home will the portrait be displayed? Since we are custom creating an art piece in the form of your family portrait, it needs to look as if it BELONGS in your home. What is the style of your decor? What colors do you decorate with?
Something to try. Lay out everyone’s clothing in the room where your portrait will live. Replace outfits and add accessories until you achieve a complimentary and exciting look for that room. Also, after laying out the clothing choices you have in mind consider taking a quick snapshot with your phone. If you like what you see, this photo can be helpful when sharing this information with other family members and when shopping for the rest of the family.
One last tip. Darker colors tend to slenderize while lighter colors emphasize and appear larger.
