13 Different Picture Outfit Ideas for 1 Family

Since it’s the season for Family Pictures, and knowing from personal experience as well as from clients that figuring out what to wear is one of the biggest stresses, I thought I’d share what our family has worn from year to year for pictures. Of course I want to change it up each year, and since I LOVE having our family pictures taken, I’ve got quite a lot to share! Some of these are old with small images, but I hope they can inspire you to think outside of your standard color palate!  I always get excited to try out something new, myself.

Not only are there individual family pictures, but 3 extended family pictures ideas, which will help you visualize colors for a larger group.

I don’t think you can ever go wrong with Pastels, I mean how cute is this?  And it’s perfect in this setting too!  Pastels also allow for so many different combinations that you can’t go wrong, did I already mention that?

If you’re going to take family pictures on a beach then why not get outfit inspiration from the water?  I love the mix of blues and the pops of yellows in this family picture!

Black and gray with any color will look great, adding some color on the bottom helps whether through shoes or pants, and not just tops. Click over to see more pictures.
