It’s no secret that planning for family photos takes just that- PLANNING! And sometimes as moms, setting aside the time to think through outfit themes and color schemes can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why I’m trying to take the work out of this process for you, so that when it comes time for your family to take pictures, you already know what everyone is wearing.

Whether you are planning to do some one stop shopping at Target, or hoping to stay comfortable and rock your favorite leggings, look no further than RIGHT HERE for all your outfit inspiration. It’s time to break out your trendy boots and booties that you don’t get to wear out of the house on a regular basis (because #momlife) and get the family ready to capture some memories that will last you an entire lifetime.

Nothing says CLASSIC like a beautiful, neutral palette. Black, white and touches of grey and cream keep everyone’s outfits streamlined and timeless. 

What To Wear For Family Photo Holiday Cards: DENIM

Having denim in each outfit keeps things looking casual, comfortable and easy. Pairing denim with flannel, plaid, sherpa, and faux fur will give your photo a holiday feel even if there’s no snow in the background of your photo. 🙂

Here we are as an example of how we dressed in denim / casual for our family photos for Finn’s 1st Birthday! I loved how casual yet special the photo is with a touch of gold on my sandals, a statement earring, and Eric in a well made polo. 

What To Wear For Family Photo Holiday Cards: DRESSY

If you’re looking for an elevated style to your family photos, try incorporating floral, lace, argyle, and embroidery for a dressy feel. The best part about this theme is that it can be worn again to parties, church, Christmas Eve service, and other special events around the holidays.

Here is an example of how I went a little dressier with our family photos last spring! While the boys are still wearing jeans, we went with a darker wash to give a more put-together look. I LOVED this leopard dress (now currently sold out but linking similar HERE) and I think it is a great way to make a statement while the boys were more neutral!
