5 Tips on What to Wear For  Family and Newborn Photos:

Here are some of my favorite outfits for Family Photos.  I am also sharing 5 tips for choosing the best looks for your family.

  1.  Start with Mom:  This is the most valuable tip I can give!  It is always the hardest to choose your own outfit.  Am I right?!? So find something you love and feel comfortable and beautiful in.  Once mom’s outfit is chosen, the rest of the outfits can be coordinated with hers.  I would always suggest a flowing long dress, you can do a solid color or a pattern.  These dresses photograph beautifully and can be worn over and over again.  This dress & this dress would look gorgeous!  Also this dress is one of my FAVES!
  2.   Choose one Patterned outfit:  Choosing one person to wear a pattern and the rest of the family to wear solid colors is always a great idea.  For example, Mom would choose a beautiful floral dress and the kids would wear colors that coordinates with her outfit.  I love these outfits for newborns, babies, and children.  This is one of my favorites for baby girls and the knitted bottom is just gorgeous!
  3. Textures:  Textures and layers add so much interest to photos.  Add a scarf or a cardigan.  Layer a sweater over a button up long sleeve shirt for dad.
  4. Avoid logos or appliques:  I always suggest avoiding logos and appliques.  I know they are cute out and about. But, they are totally distracting in photographs. So leave the cute sweater with the adorable heart applique at home:)
  5. Make sure the outfits reflect you:  Lastly,  make sure you feel like yourself!  If you are wearing a dress and you feel completely weird in a dress then wear a pair of skinny jeans, great shoes, and and oversized sweater.  Also, make sure kids are not itchy or wearing clothes that are uncomfortable.  It will show it pictures.
