If you have a favorite pattern, there are ways to incorporate it without it overwhelming the eyes (like this beautiful family did!)

Wrinkled Clothes

The easiest way to avoid this is by doing a little planning ahead. Once you know what everyone is going to wear, lay it out the night before. This way, if that shirt that’s just perfect for the theme happens to have been squished at the back of your closet for a while, you have plenty of time to iron it.

Busy Patterns

We both want your family photos to be beautiful and timeless so that they can be shown off for years to come, nothing can distract from the beauty of your family as easily as clashing patterns or large logos. Stick to solid print anything, if you have a favorite pattern, there are ways to incorporate it without it overwhelming the eyes.

Waiting “Day Of” to Choose Your Outfits

Maybe you’re one of those people who can effortlessly look put together at the drop of a dime…kudos to you! I, and most of us, need a little more time to make sure the whole family is portrait worthy. The biggest step is choosing coordinating outfits for the whole family – traveling closet to closet, mixing and matching until you get it just right can take some time!
