Ashley Thalman for Say Yes to Hoboken // 10 Tips for Beautiful Family Photos

Here are some shots from my latest work for Liz Stanley’s Say Yes to Hoboken .

It is so wonderful to work with Liz who is so wholeheartedly talented, dedicated to her work and always professional. To have my work so appreciated and my aesthetic trusted makes for a happy me. It was nice to finally meet Abby Sharp , her sweet husband and two darling, friendly kids. I also go to work with Emily Frame again who did the styling for this shoot. If you are new to the word “styling” fear not and let me explain.
Emily styled this family shoot by creating a look that was both natural and reflective of this client’s personal style. A stylist can help you choose clothing that flatters your body shape, height, style, and general aesthetic. A stylist will also remind you or things like clean socks, ironing your shirt, etc. Quality family portraits cost enough- don’t buy a new wardrobe to prepare. Instead, hire Emily!
A week before our session Emily met with Abby and they discussed Abby’s favorite, most comfortable clothing. Emily then choose a color pallet and continued building the kids outfits and accessories from their closets. They chose neutral rich navy and accented it with the mustard tie and skirt with tiny yellow flowers for Pearl. In this case Emily shopped for slacks and a tie for Jamie (QP Collections), shoes for Milo and commissioned Pearl’s floral headband from Larkspur floral. Pretty minimal.
