what to wear--family

as a photographer, i am always asked by my clients what they should wear...so i decided to pull together some examples for families:

outfits for family members should be fun and mold together as one BIG outfit.  so matchy matchy isn't always the best.  for families with children, the best option is to find one patterned or fun item that you love and match up the other peeps in the fam accordingly.  mini boden soooo has this right...
start with the blue checked top, add little sisters dress and toss in the handbag for color and coordination.  the added red and turquoise and lilac then gets pulled out in mom and dad's outfits.
and then good old dad...

i love the whisy kiddo clothes, and making momma fancy smancy a little with some great touches.  add some color to daddy-o with a belt...but lose the watch. 

i love picking outfits straight from the closet...and using the clothes that you love and the kids enjoy wearing.  it makes the "jump in the air" pictures way easier and more fun, too!

THANK YOU for not encouraging the "white shirt, denim or khaki pants for everyone" look.
It's SO overdone!
