How to Coordinate Outfits for Your Family Photos


Photo Cred: Ashley Sommer Photography

Family photos have come a long way from the traditional sit in a photo studio with the whole family wearing black look. Family photos are now bright and fun. The easiest way to ensure a perfect family photo is with coordinating outfits that add a special element to your photo.

Tips for Choosing What to Wear in Family Photos

You want to basically create a beautiful piece of art with your family and their outfits. Follow these tips for the best clothing choices:

  • Don’t Go Overboard with White and Black: Both are great background colors, but they shouldn’t be your main color.
  • Stay Classy: These are the photos you might want to hang on the wall and look at for many years to come, so pick classic outfits.
  • No Characters: Sorry to tell you, but Queen Elsa is not welcomed on picture day. Avoid all character and graphic clothing.
  • Coordinate with the Location: Think about how your colors will work with your location. If you plan on having a stunning desert landscape as your location, browns or greys might not pop out enough in the picture.
  • Limit Patterns: Don’t overdo patterns, for example, not everyone should be wearing a plaid shirt or damask pettidresses. However, a pattern can add a fun touch to the photograph, so allow one child’s outfit to showcase a pattern while still matching the rest of the family.
  • Add Texture: Add some depth to the picture by choosing outfits with texture. This means layering belts and shrugs over a plain tee, adding a flower headband, or choosing a ruffled shirt or dress for your daughter.

Fun Poses for Family Pictures

When you talk with your photographer about poses, be sure to include a few standard poses with fun poses. Poses like the one above where the family is walking in a line is a fun idea, and we love the parents kissing over the grossed out kids. These fun photos capture your family’s personality and fun-loving side.

Some other great pose ideas are of your family looking at themselves in a big puddle for a cool reflection shot or snuggled up in bed or lying on a blanket in a field. Have fun with your kids in the picture and let your family’s love shine through.


Outfit Ideas

thumbnail.aspNeed some inspiration for your next photo shoot? We love pairing pinks and grey together. The Dolly Baby Pink/Pink/Fuchsia Sweet Pea Fairy Dress is one gorgeous dress that is not too fancy for a photo shoot. This teedress comes in sizes 6-18M to 5-7Y. For boys, you can pair this dress with the Mini Shatsu White and Grey Printed Blazer Tee. This grey tee matches the casual but nice look of the pink dress. Available in sizes 2T-12. Pair with jeans or dress pants.

Another great color combination for photos is brown and blue hues. The Isobella & Chloe Reese Mocha Drop Waist Dress is a gorgeous dress12 13that will pair amazingly with light blues, darker browns, and denim. It is available in sizes 4-12.

The dress pairs wonderfully with the boy’s outfit. You can get a similar look with the Blueberry Hill Brown Cooper Tweed Driving Cap , Appaman Blue Standard Shirt, and a brown tie and jeans. Mom and dad can wear jeans and brown or blue tops to match their kids.

Family photos are such a wonderful keepsake, but it can be hard to coordinate everyone’s outfit. Combine similar hues and don’t be afraid of color. Avoid looking to matchy and instead go for outfits that compliment each other.

Don’t forget the bib and diaper cover for the cake smash! The Mud Pie Baby Safari Lion Bib is a cute choice, though you can be sure that adorable lion will be covered in frosting shortly after.

Forget birthday hats! Your special guy needs his own prince crown. These are such a fun prop for photos, especially when little man is smashing int0 his messy cake. The Enchanted Shimmer Royal Cross Crown is gorgeous in all of its sparkling glory. We also love the Enchanted Shimmer Aquamarine Kate Crown which has an intricate design and aquamarine jewels along with the crystals. The manliest crown of all is the Enchanted Shimmer Sapphire Crown which looks exactly like what the new baby Prince George would wear. Remember, this is to use as a prop or decoration item. It is not a toy.

Fun Baby Gifts

What do you give your rascally little guy for his special day? There are so many fun choices, from 1darling baby boy clothes to fun boy toys. We love the idea of practical gifts that he will love and that parents can use. The Mud Pie Baby Safari Drink Pals are way too cute! They make drinking water or juice a lot more fun.

All of these fun baby gifts are also great ideas for other kids. Moms will love these gifts because they are practical and something other parents might not have thought of. As moms, we know what it is like to get too many toys and clothes, but all three of these fun gifts can be used every day.

Your little guy will only be one for a short time, and then you blink and it is time to plan their second birthday.

Fashionable Gladiator Shoes for Girls

1Gladiator shoes are a great fashion for summer, but before this season, we have never seen gladiator shoes for girls that are this cute! These gladiator shoes will pair perfectly with so many hot summer fashions for girls. We love them dressed up with Ooh! La La Couture’s fancy dress fashions or dressed down with the darling Paper Wings Red Chambray Shirred Capris. Any way you want to wear them, you are sure to get a lot of compliments. 11

You can rock the original gladiator look with the Joyfolie Rust Gladiator Boot Sandal. These rust-colored beauties will go with any fashion choices. They are subtle but fashionable. They come in sizes 9 – 4 Youth. Kim Kardashian’s little cutie, North West, rocked a similar pair of Joyfolie’s gladiator sandals at her birthday party this month.

If you want a glammed up version of the gladiator sandal, then look no further than the Joyfolie Blush Alexa Boot. Aren’t these just the most gorgeous little girl shoes that you have ever seen?! How can anyone resist the glitter and the bows?! It is no surprise that we sold out of these lovely shoes quickly. Thankfully they are back in stock and ready to be worn by your little princess. Available in 4T, 5, 6, 12, 13, 2Y, and 3Y. Get yours before they are gone!

10If you would rather have that style in silver, then the Joyfolie Silver Alexa Boot are for you! As much as we love the pink hue, the silver hue is quite awesome too. It will pair perfectly with so many little girl fashions. This gladiator boot sold out and was restocked too, but we are limited on sizes. You can still find them in sizes 4T, 5, and 6.

These three styles are amazing for summer. They have all the comfort of a sandal and all the high class fashion of a boot. They will even look great for the transition to fall styles.

Christmas is coming early this year

Christmas is coming early this year.  Don’t kill me.  I know, it’s waay too early to be thinking about Christmas.  I mean, we haven’t even made our Thanksgiving menu yet.  Well, Christmas isn’t really coming early anyway, but it’s going to seem like it.  What is coming early is Hanukkah.  In fact, it starts on Thanksgiving.  Which means that Thanksgiving is late this year.

And what that means is that we will have less than four weeks to do all the baking, singing, shopping, visiting, hugging and decorating that we want to do before the Big Day is here.  26 days, to be precise.

So what are you waiting for?  I know, it’s scandalous.  But me personally, I love the season, and I’m going to use this weekend and all next week for the holidays, plural, and just wrap Thanksgiving right in with the rest of it.
