Family Picture Clothes by Color Series–Blues

Welcome to the BLUE post, where I share ideas on What to Wear in Family Pictures with the color BLUE!  This is part of a greater series all about colors in family pictures, see the intro post on that link for more great ideas.

Blue seems to be the most popular and versatile color for family pictures. It complements so many other colors, and comes in so many shades such as turquoise, baby, denim, navy, teal, etc.  It was a challenge to decide how to categorize the dominant color in an individual picture, but I picked according to either what stood out at first glance, or what color was used the most. Since blue is a more subtle color, this page has just a little pops of color, as most of those color pictures are in the more colorful posts. You’ll see more blue as you go throughout the other color posts, for sure.
