How to plan clothes for family photos

As a Mom and a photographer, I know that the hardest part of preparing for family photos is getting everyone dressed.  I stress out over my own family’s wardrobe, so I get it!  But if you plan ahead, it’ll be easier.  First, think about where in your home the photos will hang.  Do you need a family photo over the fireplace, on the staircase, or perhaps another wall in the living space that needs a personal touch?  Consider the colors in this space – are there neutrals or is there a bold color?  If there is a bold color, you’ll want to be sure that your wardrobe coordinates.  Next, pick two or three coordinating colors and remember that jeans, black, and khakis are free because they go with just about everything.  Finally, start with the person with the fewest clothing options and then build the family outfits from there.  Usually, my daughter and I start the plan and then my husband and son can usually find a button down or polo shirt to coordinate.  Remember to set everything out down to the shoes so that there are no surprises on photo day!

The Barajas Family

The Barajas family was on-point with their Fall family wardrobe!  I absolutely love the colors and the coordination!  No one has on exactly the same outfit but the mustard and navy colors coordinate beautifully.  Even the jean jacket on the little one helps to pull the dark blue color and the jeans together for the family.  Layers and texture are always a great thing for pulling together an entire look!
