What to wear for family photos?

The top questions I receive: What to wear for family photos?  Selecting clothing for your family photo session is sometimes the most stressful choice when getting your picture taken.  Below are some ideas to inspire you – my very own “what to wear” guide.  Feel free to use these as a look book to help you decide what you wish to wear.

Once you book a family session,  I have an in-depth guide that I can send you to help you prepare that has more detailed information on what to wear and colors to avoid.  Remember, I want this to be fun and stress-free for you!


Want someone else to do all the work for you?  I have a stylist, Kathrine, and I am happy to refer you to her!  She can do everything via phone or email so it easily fits into your schedule.  If you’re really wanting the full treatment, she can even some shop your closet and put outfits together (or go on a personal shopping trip just for you). Just ask me for her info when you book so you can get in touch with her.
