Williams Family

I want to commend the beautiful Williams family for not only being troopers in the hot Georgia summer weather, but they also did a great job paying attention to my What to Wear blog post. They are all wearing summer blues that coordinate well and aren't too matchy-matchy. One of their son's shirts even matches his brother's shoes! How awesome is that!? A+ :)

What to Wear: Old Navy

Are you looking for some ideas for what to wear for your next family photo shoot? Here are two different ideas I put together for some summer fun. Each ensemble is made entirely of Old Navy clothing, shoes, and accessories.

A few things to keep in mind when choosing outfits for a family session:

1. Pick a color scheme. (Such as yellow/green or blue/orange as seen in the examples). Not every family member has to wear both colors, but your family will look more cohesive if everyone wears at least one or two of those colors. You can always throw in some neutrals to your color scheme like white or khaki.

2. Mix it up! Not everyone has to wear blue shirts. Mom can wear a blue skirt, Dad can wear a blue shirt, and your son could have blue stripes in his shirt.

3. Play with patterns. Not everyone should wear a pattern but one or two polka dots or stripes in the family would make the photos more interesting than all solid colors.

4. Avoid clothing with words, characters, and pictures on it. These things distract from your beautiful faces!
