What to wear for family pictures.


Late summer and fall are the most popular times of the year for family pictures, so now is the time to get those scheduled and have the date secured!


Now that the easy part is done, the hard part begins.......WHAT DO WE WEAR????



Pick a color scheme that will go great in your home. 

Decide which room of your home your photos will be displayed and start with a color that will look great in that room.

Now its time to pick out the outfits.

One outfit should be the main focus of the family, and that typically is Mom. So Mom go knock your socks off and pick out your fabulous outfit, accessories included and then start choosing the rest of the family to match.

Next add in a small pattern and complimentary colors.

You do not want everyone to look the same, so add other outfits that have some of the main color in them. You are trying to keep it simple, you do not want a bunch of different patterns. And you definitely do not want to try to make your outfits compete with each other.

Finally Keep it Simple!!!

Your pictures are a reflection of your family. These will be on your walls for years to come so try to pick outfits that reflect your personality, and most importantly something you are comfortable in


Remember......Your goal is to coordinate, not match.

So start out by laying your outfits on the bed and try different combinations to see what you like best. And definitely try them on before the day of your session :)
