Style By Season featuring family in Burberry for Summer photo shoot in Issaquah Fun Summer family pictures in Issaquah park of family wearing Burberry
Summer is synonymous with outdoor family pictures here at Studio B and since “what to wear” is always at the top of the list of questions that come up when planning — we’re launching our “Style by Season” series. For each of the features we’ll be highlighting “Pinterest-worthy” wardrobe ideas for your portraits.

Today we’re featuring the Tong Family in a cheery palette of pattern and color.  Love Mom in her happy yellow A-line dress and seriously how darling are the girls in their Burberry dresses?  Dad’s button down shirt and casual denim adds great contrast to the ladies and comfort for him to easily play in the park for our Issaquah shoot.

Pro Tip:  Young and active families keep the focus on fun when clothes move easily and shoes are comfortable (…or off)

Oh — and for anyone that knows me…I am obsessed with celebrity style and fashion magazines so BONUS — I started a Pinterest board just for Family Wardrobe and Posing Ideas.  I’ll be updating it and I’d love for you to connect with me and share your inspiring pins too!

Can I get a show of hands for every Class of 2017 gal that is currently running out to quickly find themselves a white peasant top and jean shorts after seeing Gabbie killing her senior pictures photo shoot here? The Eastlake High School Senior is a total “do” from head to to toe but the reason why might surprise you.  It’s not just her outfit.  It’s that this girl knows the 2 ridiculously easy steps to senior pictures success (yes… there’s just two) and we’re about to tell you too.

  • Play to your strengths.  Ask yourself what you love about yourself and if you are stumbling with that inquiry… ask your best friend or Mom & Dad to help you.  Being aware of the things that make you feel awesome will actually make you look amazing on camera.
  • Highlight and Enhance those features.  It’s really that simple.  Hair, eyes, smile, arms, cheekbones – pick a part and play it up!  For example — Love your legs?  Show them off.  Wish they had a little more color?  You are just a spray tan away from a faux Summer glow.

What is the best senior pictures location? For me it’s the one where you do not have to change in your car… or a public restroom (heehee) Seriously…I’ve photographed 1000’s of senior portraits and nothing puts a damper on an awesome senior pictures experience like awkwardly switching outfits in the cramped backseat of a vehicle or a park restroom with a seemingly endless parade of strangers.   That being said… my bar is a little higher for what makes the best senior pictures location but the aforementioned certainly contributes to my sliding scale of awesomeness.  I adore this little gem of a spot because it photographs like Rattlesnake Lake without the commute — we are literally just walking distance from our studio front door complete with a private wardrobe room, heat or air conditioning (depending on the season) yet still right there with the woods and a plethora of things to pose and play with — fallen logs, rustic fence lines, lazy river and willowy tall grass for our shooting pleasure!

And speaking of photography joy — can I just share all of our love for Redmond High School Senior Rachael here?  The hat, the romper, the wildly wonderful everything about her?  Fun side note, after we finished this Free People inspired look, we popped back into the studio, switched into her glam dress and photographed a chic floral inspiration.  That new location was just a block the opposite direction from the studio with a completely different city look –  no driving, no traffic, no trying to figure out where to park — just a fun shoot and a great senior pictures shoot.  Neat huh?

If you just can’t get enough of Rachael, you’ll just have to see this cute behind the scenes video clip on Instagram and our sneak peek on Facebook.

Modern family portrait in the studio with puppy boston terrier dog Modern Family Portraits with your Puppy Boston Terrier Dog Boston terrier dog wearing blue flower bow around neck and laying with toddler girl
Super rainy day instead of sunshine and on tap is modern family portraits in the studio with your puppy Boston Terrier, baby girl and energetic boy? YES, please! — Wait (looking around) — am I the only one with my hand up? Heehee. No seriously… I have learned over the years that THIS is the precise reason  why we have an awesome studio. No sunshine, no problem.  We headed inside for lots of snuggles, a little Spiderman Super Hero action and a ton of fun.  On a side note, this was a really exciting family portrait session for me to photograph because the last time I had this lovely family in front of my camera… they were a family of three!  Here is a quick link to our blog post and images from that shoot. So wonderful getting to meet their new addition.
