Avoid large patterns and opt for smaller scale patterns with coordinating colors ~
Look to your home decor for color inspiration! I think about which room I want to hang our photographs in and usually lean towards whites, blues and subtle patterns. Just like in our home decor ~
Bring accessories and/or props to have (like hats. scarves, bouquet of flowers) for a variety of pictures.
These accessories add a little something extra to your photos. I also like having something in my hand which makes posing come a little more naturally.
I personally love dresses for family photos. I've found dresses look more flattering on me in general in photos. Plus the girls love wearing them to feel a little "fancier"~
Always consider the location of the photo shoot too while choosing outfits. I love complementing the scenery with what we wear ~
