What to Wear in Family Photos

12 Days of Holiday Outfits

You may remember the holiday photos tips from our pro photography friend Corey Best of Best part photography that we posted a couple weeks ago. Well, today we’re going to expand even further on that as day 5 of the 12 Days of Holiday Outfits Challenge with Jo-Lynne Shayne and Cyndi Spivey of Walking in Grace & Beauty is What to Wear in Family Photos…


We’ve been taking family photos around the holidays for as long as I can remember. I have so much fun selecting our color scheme each year and styling everyone’s looks. For me, the most important element is color. It shows up beautifully in photos. I’m not opposed to a black and white look, but I must have a pop of bold color in there! I also love mixing prints. A bold plaid print with a subtle stripe, for instance, can be so pretty!

Don’t be afraid to go beyond your own little family. A couple years back, my sister and her husband joined us for our photo sesh, so we could give a photo of all us to my mama as a holiday gift. We all went with shades of blue and pops of red! So, does that answer your what to wear in family photos question lovelies?

And don’t forget to check out our other holiday outfits…Thanksgiving (plus $250 Rack Room Shoes giveaway), Black Friday Shopping, Work Holiday Party, Home Holiday Party.

    We only have four in the house now, but I always add my oldest, his wife and their daughter, and my second-oldest who is grown and in a place of his own, to our cards. 🙂

    I always have so much trouble picking colors for family portraits. I’m so glad that I came by today to check this out. Now I have some new ideas about what we can do. We’re thinking of an impromptu photo shoot for the holidays, and a pop of color with blue jeans could be great, or a striped sweater affair with a little plaid here and there!

    I love outdoor photos, so we usually do ours for Mother’s day! And we love to give it our own flair…great colors and lots of “action shots” lol
