With Spring (hopefully) right around the corner, it is time to talk color! I know, we’re in Northeast Ohio, but I swear warm weather will be here soon! It is time to start thinking about what to wear for upcoming portrait sessions. It can be a daunting task especially for family and group photographs. While picking out clothing for photo sessions is a bit easier for individual kids and high school senior portraits, it is always a great idea to know what works well together.
The Pantone color report for 2013 says that emerald will be the color of the year. This year the stores will be filled with green-colored clothing and jewels to add to your wardrobe. It doesn’t hurt that my birthstone is the emerald, either!
Green is a color that works well on almost every skin tone. You can easily combine it with a multitude of other colors.
So now that you know what the color trend is for this year, how do you use it for your portrait session? I found this amazing website, Design Seeds on Pinterest to help anyone looking for color combos. The site offers fun and pretty palettes to help those who may be a little stumped on color choices that go well together. Below are a few color combinations I pulled for Emerald on Design Seeds – there were some unexpected, yet pretty combos for clothing ideas!
