Or maybe more accurately, what NOT to wear. Please avoid cartoon characters and any loud logos on clothing. These tend to take over the photo! Patterns are fine, as is white. Dress your child in a tidier version of what they would normally wear – that means cleanish shoes too.
For family photos I always suggest coordinating without being matchy-matchy. Think thematically; maybe red, white, blue and khakis for a preppy look. Or shades of blues and purples, jewel tones, or reds and oranges, or light tones.
Try pulling out a few pieces from each person’s closet and mix and match them on the bed or floor. You might be surprised at what looks really good together!
Here are some great examples from some of my past sessions.
