Figuring out what to wear to your family photo session can be the hardest part of the whole thought of booking a session.

While there is no right or wrong answer to the question of what to wear, there are certain choices that I find photograph well outdoors! If you need help shopping, I highly suggest a few places to start shopping!

Some of our favorite places to shop for children’s clothes are Zara, Baby Gap, Purl Lamb, Abercrombie and Janie and JackAnthropologie, Free People, Express, Spool 72, Banana Republic, Abercrombie and Fitch, Rachel Pally and American Eagle make great options for adults and older children.

  • LAYERS: More is more here, folks (unless it’s a weird summer 100° degrees outside.)
  • NEUTRALS: Build your outfits around a neutral base and pop in colors.
  • MATCHING: Identical or “themed” outfits – I DO NOT SUGGEST!
  • FOOTWEAR: I try to suggest avoid crocs, tennis shoes with characters or bright neon colors.
