Sometimes people really stress about what to wear to their photo session. There are a few important details that need not be overlooked and we will get to those in a minute. For the record, though, we haven’t seen anyone get it all wrong yet. So don’t worry! Planning your family’s outfits should be fun and exciting!
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Simple, neutral, classic colors and styles.
Patterns, if any, should be small and subtle.
Coordinating or matching outfits. Try laying out everyone’s outfits on the bed and see if they look good together.
Try not to choose anything trendy that will date your photograph.
Avoid distractions. Jewelry and accessories should be minimal.
With all of this said, this is your family portrait, and it should reflect what is important to your family. If you want to go crazy, go crazy!
Many of our clients have done fabulous jobs coordinating their family photo wear. Here are few…
These outfits look like they were made to go together! The colors match perfectly! This family did an excellent job coordinating!
Almost every child has something denim and a white top. That’s why this was the perfect outfit for these cousins. They successfully coordinated their outfits without ever actually seeing them together until photo session day!
These boys went the matching route with their khaki shorts and brown plaid button ups, but they each wore them their own way. Coordinating is important, but it is also important to be comfortable and to be yourself.

This is a very classy look. The pieces are very traditional with the addition of some modern ruffles. The classic black tights and flats make Shadelyn look like a little lady.
Shadelyn, like all little girls, looks pretty in pink. This outfit is reflective of everyday wear. The top and paints are simple without a lot of words to distract from Shadelyn’s smile. The fun socks, boots, and hair bow show how much fun it is to be a little girl.
This outfit is fantastic! Shadelyn’s yellow tights look great paired with her striped dress. The blue jean jacket seems to continue to stand the test of time. The boots…well, who doesn’t wish they could pull off the galosh look everyday.
The leopard print vest is bold, but not too bold. The pink hair bow brings a subtle burst of color to the look. These things paired with comfy jeans and shoes make for a sassy looking 2 year old.
The bold colors in this fun sweater look nice with these solid colored pants, against this neutral backdrop.
Not only did Shadelyn and her mother bring perfect outfits, they also brought super fun shoes!
