Pleasing Color Palettes for Family Portraits Part II | Alison Photography Santa Barbara and SF Bay

Fashion sketch of a family to illustrate portrait dressing palettes for Alison Photography, Santa Barbara and San Francisco Lifestyle photographer. Since I wrote last week's post, I've been thinking about how to illustrate some of the color palettes I generated for it. I love the look of watercolor, so I thought if I could sketch some clothes in black and white, I could use swashes of watercolor to color them in. If I were an accomplished artist, this might have worked very well! Unfortunately, I'm not (maybe someday!). On to Plan B - I found some stock clothing outlines, an app that makes fashion sketches from photos and an app that makes stencils from photos, among other options, but none of these seemed like the right choice for this project. Then, I found this great gig on Fiverr (which I've been wanting to try), and the talented fuchsia_mea created this fashion forward family for me to add my colors to! I love it, and highly recommend her and her work :) So, now, on to the examples.

First up, the palette from the opening photo of the last post.

And next, the more neutral palette that might work particularly well in a city or at the beach.

And finally, the other palette that may be especially harmonious with a forest or wooded area.

I really enjoyed doing this project, and think this information could be really helpful to families in coordinating their portrait outfits. Please leave questions, comments or suggestions below - I'd love to hear from you! Have a great week, and I'll see some of you soon!
