Fall Family Photo Outfit Ideas

Probably one of the most highly requested posts, and so I’m excited to share this post with you today! While I don’t have a ton experience with putting together family photo outfits since we’ve only had one session thus far with Keldon, I think I have a good eye for what looks good together and some things to keep in mind when putting together your outfits. The inspiration I share will be fall-focused, but the tips can be used for any season!

Family Photo Outfit Tips:

  • Consider your background/backdrop. Probably the very first thing you should think about before picking out anyone’s outfits! Be mindful of the colors and how busy the background is so that you don’t clash.
  • Plan your outfit first! Typically, you will care the most about your outfit and will likely have the most options. Start with mama, and move onto your daughter(s), son(s), and then finally your spouse.
  • A neutral color palette will never tire. Colors are fun and show personality, but if you plan to have these photos on your walls for years to come, having your family wear a neutral color palette will mesh best with fitting into your home decor season after season, year after year.
  • Coordinate colors, but don’t necessarily match. Matching can be cute, but also look cheesy, lol. I have a 90’s family photo where my family and I are ALL wearing denim outfits; I was even wearing a denim hat. I guess it keeps us laughing to this day, but it depends what you are going for… ha!
  • Keep patterns minimal. I love a good floral pattern and stripe, but you won’t want everyone rocking patterns on their threads. Photos will appear too busy and can easily clash. Solids are always a safe choice! If you can, limit one person to a pattern.
  • Let your kiddos have a little say. If they absolutely don’t want to wear something or don’t like wearing a certain thing, don’t make them. I will likely lead to a melt down during the shoot, which won’t do any good for photos (or your stress level)!
  • Keep it modest. I think this goes without saying, but…
  • Try on your outfits in advance. To ensure proper fit and that you like how they look.
  • Stick to one outfit. I wouldn’t force the family into changing into more than one outfit. It’s timely, can get complicated, and your kids probably won’t be too happy!

Hope this helped! I tried keeping items super affordable as well. Lots of Old Navy, Target and Abercrombie. I apologize if things sell out, but hopefully it gives you some inspiration nonetheless. 🙂
