Find Neutral Clothing for Your Session at Boutiques in Madison CT

Family photo season is finally upon us! Whether you are looking for the perfect photo to use on your holiday cards or just need an updated family portrait, it’s the season to schedule your photoshoot.  After you’ve scheduled (and you can contact me here!), the next thing you have to consider is what to wear! If you’re coordinating multiple outfits (which you likely are), one way to keep things simple and looking clean is to stay neutral. These boutiques in Madison, CT can help you do just that! Pick a simplistic color palette that flatters everyone in your photo, avoid bold patterns and graphics, and consider complementary or contrasting textures.  You might choose to dress everyone in shades of tan and white.  Or you might want to go with a limited palette of pale yellows and greens.  A starting point like this can help assembling outfits feel less overwhelming.

Once you have an idea in mind, it’s time to shop! While it can be tempting to focus more on your little ones’ clothing, don’t be afraid to find an outfit that makes you feel gorgeous first. These boutiques on the Connecticut shoreline are great places to find neutral-colored outfits that will make you feel stunning in your updated family photos.

Tracy Brent Collections

Tracy Brent Collections is home to two separate selections. Their Tracy Brent Collections are more upscale and include fashions ideal for work, cocktail, and evening attire. Tracy 2, however, features a bit more casual but no less stylish clothing. I just bought a beautiful and simple grey sweater there last week!  However you envision styling your family photoshoot, Tracy Brent has just the ensemble to help you blend in while still standing out.  Located conveniently right on the Guilford Green.
