The memories we make with our family is everything.

Now let’s get to the fun stuff! Of course, if you’re taking the time and money to take photos, you want to look your best! Here are my tips to clients when they’re trying to figure out what to wear:


I recommend not being too matchy-matchy; pick one neutral and pick one or two colors. Let everyone work with those choices, using various tones in the same color family (ie. purple (lavender to grape) or blue (powder to navy)), along with different fabrics (sweaters, button downs shirts, polos, flowy tops, etc.). Depending on your choices, even adding a 3rd color for accent or pop will work.


Sometimes our kids (or our!) favorite clothing items have prints in them. That’s totally fine! Just try to stay in the same color family you picked and at the very least pick prints that don’t compete with each other. We don’t want the photo to take us back to our Sesame Street days of “which of these 4 does not belong?”!!!


The last thing we want at a photo session is to be pulling at our uncomfortable clothes, or readjusting straps and collars that just don’t fit right. As nice as it is to have brand new (read: unstained) clothes in our photos, it’s important to be comfortable. Make sure you’ve had a good fitting before heading to our session. And most importantly pick what makes you and your family feel good GREAT! There are awesome Pinterest boards with lots of inspiration! Here’s my “Wardrobe, Please!” board, and here’s a search for clothing ideas. I look forward to hearing from you to schedule your session!
