Hi y’all, Happy Wednesday!
Deciding what to wear in Family Pictures can be a daunting task. What colors to wear? How can we coordinate, but not be 90’s denim matchy-matchy? I’ve got some great tips to think about, and throughout the post, links to ideas to help you on your way to get fabulous family pictures! As a new mom, this is going to be our first year to take family Christmas pictures. As much as I wish I could go shopping all day to find the perfect family outfits, lets be real….I have about 3-4 hours between pumping, diapers to change, a baby to feed, etc. If I can find everything I need at one or two stores, I’m happy. Since I’m happy shopping this way, I’ve made these inspiration boards off only having to shop at one or two stores. [you’re welcome! :)]
Here are three little family outfit looks including girls and boys that I love together if you are in need of a little inspiration.
Tip 1: Ultimately, your family photos should represent you and your family. If you guys are formal/dressy, use that for inspiration; if you are super casual, use that. My family is somewhere in between. We both like outfits that can be worn to work, Church, or to dinner without having to change.
Tip 2: Accessories should be understated and simple. You want to look back at these photos and see your family, not the light up Christmas bulb earrings you thought would make a pop. Simple silver and/or gold jewelry will work great. If you’re wanting a pop of color, a red lip is great and is flattering on almost anyone.
Tip 3: In Houston, we don’t have to worry about it being too cold most of the time, but if you need an extra layer, pair these outfits with tights, scarfs and boots or booties.
Tip 4: Choose props that will help your family interact for natural, candid photos. So bring along a book to read to the baby, a game to lay out and play with the kids, or a picnic to enjoy together.
I hope these helped! PS: One of these boards will be the theme for our family photos. Any guesses?!
Thank you so much for reading!
