What to wear to your family photo shoot - Seattle family Photographer

HELLO!!! I’m glad your here.

Ok biggest asked and very important question, what do we wear to our family photo shoot this spring/summer?

First let’s address the DO NOT DO list:

Please no logos or words on shirts. Steer clear of bright colors like florescent pink that look awkward in nature. Stick to colors that match your background.Rusts, orange, mustard, navy, dusty blue, burgundy work well in nature. There is no need to dress super fancy as if your going to a wedding, but take it up a notch from day to day.

You don’t have to be all super matchy- matchy, like let’s not all wear white for example. Just chose a complimentary color scheme. Patterns are ok if done right. Texture is fantastic.

Bring layers and keep in mind that its photogenic if your toddler has to wear it. (these are suggestions remember I do not want to seem bossy!)

On patterns- you don’t want to have a toddler in plaid and when dad holds he or she and is also wearing plaid- the patterns go all crazy on your eyeballs- taking the focus off the kiddo.

So keep it simple! Maybe just one or two of you wear a pattern.

Accessories are fun. Hats, scarves can add color and texture.

There are so many dresses for the little girls, the list goes on on and and on. I’ll link to a few examples and try to keep this updated! Here is one idea. I love this company Joyfolie for moms and daughters. (first photo below- both dresses are from there) Here is a great dress suggestion for mom - or something similar. Comfortable and flow.

If moms want to go big - DOEN is my absolute favorite. If not good for inspiration. Freepeople is also great.

DADS: keep it simple!, neutral shirt and casual pants. Maybe no sneakers….

Here is a great Amazon Example

Amazon has tons of great ideas, and I have a Pinterest board for inspiration.

ZARA is a great site for the babes and kiddos

CHECK THIS OUT FOR THE BABES! too cute!

AMAZON suggestions for DADS

And BOYS

I do not want to make this complicated for you I promise! YOU MIGHT HAVE MOST OF YOUR CLOTHES IN YOUR CLOSET ALREADY!!!
