What To Wear In Family Photos

Welcome to our 12 Days of Holiday Outfits series!! Today we’re going to talk about What to Wear in Family Photos.

I’m partnering with Kristin from BonBon Rose Girls and Jo-Lynne from Jo-Lynne Shane to bring you 12 days of posts about what to wear for EVERY event this holiday season.

12 Days Of Holiday Outfits and More!
This post has made me realize we NEED a family photo!! It’s been a few years and we’re overdue.

First, let’s talk about 5 photo tips that will help you get ready for your pictures.

1. Coordinate but don’t match. Gone are the days when you want everyone in a white shirt and khaki pants. I know it was popular at one time but we’ve moved on. Try to be a little more creative!

2. Pick one focal piece. It’s good to have a child in a patterned outfit, you can use a floral dress for a girl or a plaid shirt for a boy. Then everyone else can pick colors from their pattern.

3. Textures are your friend. Add scarves, necklaces, vests, cardigans, or hats to your outfits. Layers & accessories add dimension to your photos.

4. Plan ahead. This is a no brainer but I’m typically a “fly by the seat of your pants girl” so I need this reminder. Pick out your outfits and then lay them out together and see what you need to add or take away.

5. Think classic and timeless. Remember you’ll keep these photos forever and fashion trends come and go. Think classic while picking out your outfits so they don’t instantly date you.

Now let me introduce you to Heather Ransdell Photography. (Heather took the photo of me that’s in my sidebar.)

She was nice enough to send me these photos she recently took and the families were gracious enough to let me share them with you!

I love the colors this family picked for their picture! They added texture with the daughter’s hair bow and her dress is the focal piece. Such cute kids!

Another great example of a family photo. The little boy has the focal piece and they built around him. The mom’s scarf adds some texture. Again, aren’t those kids adorable?

How cute are the hats? Not everyone could pull this off, but this family can. And again, their kids are adorable too!

The Oversized Cardigan

Happy Thursday friends! I’ve been having so much fun with the 12 Days of holiday outfits! It’s been helping me get ready for all the get togethers that I have coming up.

Last Saturday I shared this oversized cardigan from Marshall’s with you on my What To Wear Black Friday Shopping post. The brand is an Italian brand that isn’t online.

The Oversized Cardigan

I love an oversized cardigan! They’re great on a cold day when you’re going to be running errands and you don’t want to lug a coat around.

Here are some oversized cardigans I found online. #5 is probably the closest to mine but they don’t have it in a tan color.
