Choosing your family photo outfits.

Spring is here! It’s that time of the year when we’re all over the colder weather and the spring forward time change, while it makes us sleepy for about a week, gifts us with plenty of daylight to enjoy some outside time after work and school. This is also the time when flowers start blooming and grass gets greener. If you’re lucky enough to live in Texas then you know this means blue bonnets galore.

With multicolor blooms all over to serve as a background, spring time is a perfect opportunity to take family photos and today’s blog post will help you with two ways on how to pick out your whole family ensemble.

Matchy Matchy

Identical mother daughter and father son outfits may be a little 90s, but they’re also adorable, so we suggest you just go for it. Cinch and Roper are two brands that offer matching shirts for adults and kids.

Color scheme

Another way to outfit your family for photos is to choose a color scheme and work around it. Not everyone has to wear the same color. The point is for everyone to match as a whole.

For example, in the photos below the boy’s solid shirt brings out the red in the men’s shirt. The men’s shirt colors match the woman’s skirt, and the little girl’s dress soften’s everyone’s look by adding a solid piece in a lighter color.

For another example below, the man shirt and little girl’s dress match the little boy’s main color, and the woman’s dress brings out the small colored details of the man’s shirt.

Regardless of what you pick for your family, the most important factor is to stay true to who you are as a family. Don’t dress up super formal if you’re more laid back people. Don’t force smiles or poses that don’t reflect you. These photos should reflect who you are. After all their main objective is to create memories, and those memories should be true.
