3 Tips for Dressing for family photos

by | Nov 24, 2019 | Style

It’s that time of the year again where your family is prepping for the annual christmas card. but what do you wear? well, im here to help!

Color Scheme

This is my most favorite part! Figuring out the photo scheme or theme of your session! This has alot to do with knowing where your photos will be taken and knowing those in your family. If you’re over the typical All white shirts, jeans and or khakis, try using pinterest for color pallets! we chose to use cranberry, navy, and gold!


This might seem like a no brainer but to some it’s still a foreign concept. With the ability to have free returns depending on your item, you could order clothing without ever leaving your cozy bed. If you’re looking to buy matching items it’s perfect as well! For the sisters in my family we all wore variations of the same outfit. Above is what we wore. With my sister being younger I wanted that expressed in the photos. Without us looking like twins.

Open your Closet

Often when there’s an event we always look to find new items, but sometimes we can mix and match with items already in our wardrobe. the shoes featured in my outfit i’ve had for Four years! They were perfect for my photos!
