Top Tips for the Best Holiday Family Photos

color-guidIt is the perfect time to take family photos for the holidays. The best family photos have coordinating outfits with a similar color palette. Long gone are the days of identical outfits or everyone wearing the same exact color. Here are a few tips to help you find the best clothes for your family for your holiday:

  • Avoid white unless you plan to shoot at the beach. White is a gorgeous color for the holidays, but when photographed, it can leave the picture a little lackluster.
  • No graphic tees. Avoid any clothing with graphics or words on them for the best picture.
  • Jeans are great. Jeans are great for adding a third neutral color to your family’s color combination. They can be dressed up or made more casual too. Jeans also look amazing with almost any color.
  • Don’t be afraid to go bold. As long as you coordinate the colors correctly, a bold color can really make your picture pop.

Pink is a wonderful hue to incorporate in your family photos. It pairs perfectly with gray, navy blue, and black. It is a great girly touch to your holiday photos. We love the Isobella & Chloe Genevieve Dusty Pink Ruffle Dress (Available in sizes 4-10). It looks great with the Isobella & Chloe Genevieve Dusty Pink Ruffle Tunic Set (Available in 3T), as well as the Baby Biscotti Birthday Girl Pink Ruffled Dress (Available in sizes 9M-24M). If you were to pair the pink hues with gray, the Appaman Mist Grey 2pc Mod Suit is the perfect combination.

Green Holiday Fashions

This hue pairs well with jeans and other blue hues for family holiday photos. Other fun girl fashions in this color are the Persnickety Emerald Pine Turquoise Lou Lou Top and the Persnickety Emerald Pine Ruth Skirt. For boys, the Appaman Navy Mod Suit and Appaman Blue Standard Shirt would look amazing with the emerald color.

There are many great red holiday fashions and dresses for girls this season. Depending on what type of holiday family photo you want to take, a big fluffy or sparkly red dress may be too much. The Lemon Loves Lime True Red Santa Baby Dress is a pretty holiday dress that also has fun detail and patterns.

Coordinate your boys with the Appaman Mist Mod Suit Trousers, which is beautiful grey that looks perfect with the red fashions.

Holiday Fashions in Black

Remember to avoid dressing the whole family in black and to add a little interest to the photo. The Isobella & Chloe Peyton Black Lace Holiday Sleeveless Dress is a gorgeous choice that has fun lace and brings a little grey into the hue palette too. It coordinates perfectly with the baby holiday dress –Isobella & Chloe Peyton Black Lace Holiday Cap Sleeve Dress. When using black holiday dresses, try to add a pop of color into your family’s wardrobe too. Black pairs well with several different colors, such as pink and red. We love the Appaman Black Printed Velvet Tailored Vest for boys because it can be paired with black trousers and a bow tie for a fancy holiday photo, or paired with jeans for a more casual and stylish choice. Their undershirt and bow tie can be wear you add the coordinating color.
