What to Wear for your Family Photo Shoot in Acadia National Park: Styling Tips + Tricks

Acadia National Park is a perfect location for a family photo shoot, and as a Maine vacation photographer, I know how important it is to look your best in your photos. Here are some styling tips and tricks to help you choose what to wear for your family photography session in Acadia National Park.


Coordinate Colors

To create a cohesive look for your family photos, coordinate your colors. Consider earthy tones, blues, greens, and grays that will complement the natural surroundings of Acadia National Park. Beware of being too catchy though. Mix it up.


Keep it Simple

Avoid bold patterns, large logos, or neon colors that may distract from the focus of the photo – your family. Opt for simple and timeless pieces that will complement the surroundings, such as solid colors or subtle patterns.


Add in Layers

Layers add an extra sense of dimension to images which I love. Adding a cardigan over a sweater or dress is always a great idea!


Accessories can add personality and interest to your outfits. Scarves, hats, belts, and jewelry can add a pop of color or texture. Choose accessories that are simple.

Shoes Matter

Wear comfortable shoes that are appropriate for the location of your photo shoot. If you plan to walk or hike to your photo location, choose shoes that are supportive and comfortable. Avoid uncomfortable shoes or high heels that may distract from your comfort and enjoyment of the photo shoot.


As a Maine vacation photographer, I understand the importance of looking your best in your family photos. By coordinating colors, keeping it simple, dressing for the season, accessorizing, and choosing appropriate shoes, you can ensure that you and your family look and feel your best during your photography session in Acadia National Park.
