Outfit Inspiration for Your Family Photos
This post may contain affiliate links.
We all know that fall is a relative term. Does Louisiana actually have a fall? But I do know that a little bit of cool weather, pumpkins, and football trigger the thoughts of family photos. So whether you have a session with me or another amazing photographer, let’s chat about some clothing options.
A lot of people would tell you to stick to neutrals, don’t wear patterns, and match. Let’s change that! How about stick to colors you like, wear what’s comfortable, and coordinate. Doesn’t that sound easier when planning your wardrobe?
When deciding on your color “scheme” I want you to think about what colors you’d like hanging on your walls. Because the point is to print these images! So, do you like blues? Soft neutrals? Black and white? From there, I say pick mom’s outfit first. You’re going to be the hardest to decide and the most critical on yourself. Your outfit should make you feel confident and be comfortable enough to chase kids in! Dad is probably the easiest to dress. Pants + shirt. Cargo pants are a good choice as they are usually quite neutral and look smart whilst also being comfortable. You can find some nice cargo pants at https://www.unionbay.com/collections/cargo-pants-for-men if Dad will need some new ones, but the chances are he probably already has something in his closet that works. Then the kids are just fun!
When deciding on your outfit, talk to your photographer, think about your location, and don’t forget to have fun! Family photo sessions get a bad rap, but they can be fun and memorable. Plus you’re already dressed up, go out to dinner! For more ideas, scroll through the galleries below.
