What are some of your biggest reasons stopping you from scheduling a family photo session? For me, it's figuring out what to wear.
I WANT to look put together. I NEED my clothes to be comfortable.
I WANT to feel confident. I NEED my outfit to be kid-friendly.
So, I created some outfit ideas for family photos that are that perfect mix of comfort and style. You'll be ready to tie shoes, lift kids over your head and still look amazing.
Photos at a local playground
This is all about being casual. There's a small mix of patterns (stripes, plaid) and colors (denim, white, pops of yellow and green). You're ready to chase after a loose child and a little spilt juice won't ruin anyone's outfit.
Photos at the local college with the awesome architecture
Your family is trendy and a bit urban. You want to stand out when standing next to amazing architecture. So, pick a "feature" outfit (such as mom's outfit). This is the foundation that the rest of the family will coordinate to. Don't pick all identical colors; instead, keep to a similar color family. In the set below, you can see that we're using a lot of blues and grey with pops of pink and red.
A Cold Weather Photo Session Amongst Nature
You want to stay warm and keep everyone's toes protected against stray branches. These outfits will show off mom's curves, be comfortable and keep you ready to grab that stick out of your baby's mouth. And, if the weather gets even colder (unlikely in California but we can still dream, right?), throw some beanies on everyone's heads and we're golden.
More outfit ideas
Did you know that I offer complimentary and personalized outfit selection for all my custom photography sessions?! When we sit down to plan your family's photos, we'll figure out the perfect location and the perfect outfits. We can even coordinate the colors to look great when you print these images for your living room wall.
