How to Dress for Family Photo Shoots

Not sure what to wear for your photoshoot? We got you! Read all about our tips for what to wear in your photoshoot and discover color coordinated clothing inspirations in this blog post.

What to wear for a family photo shoot?

Comfortable and coordinated clothing (if taking family shots) are always the best in photos. Solid colors and small patterns are great. Layering works really well for creating different looks. Try to avoid bold prints and patterns, which can distract the eye when viewing photography.

What colors should I choose?

Pastel colors always come out great in photos (as opposed to really bold or bright colors) as it avoids creating sharp contrasts with the background colors. White is usually a very safe color too.

Wearing colors that are different from the background helps to make your portrait pop out in photos. For example, avoid wearing green when taking summer shots with lots of trees and grass. Green will blend you in with the background.

I remember when I saw K's birth announcement, I had tears rolling in my eyes. Here's what she said."It’s hard to find the right words for what’s happened over the last 7 days. On 8/13 S and I welcomed Fiona into the world. On 8/15 (less than 36 hours later) my mom left this world. While I wish with every part of me that she could have met her granddaughter, I’m comforted by the fact that she knew Fiona had been born, saw photos of her and knew that she and I were healthy. I think she held on, just long enough, to hear this news. I know she would have loved her with all of her heart. Fiona, you are truly our light during this time and you will forever be our bracha."
