what to wear for family photos fall



When you are trying to decide what to wear for your family photos, know we’re here to help! In fact, helping families get styled for their sessions is one of our favorite things. Having a variety of coordinating colors and textures in your clothes adds so much to your pictures and deciding what everyone in the family will wear is a lot of work for just mom or dad to do. This is why we offer various options for styling guides no matter the season of your session.

Style & Select

Our favorite option we offer our clients is a super fun interactive tool called Style & Select, where you put in the ages & gender of your children and it links you to various options of clothes, shoes, accessories, etc, all available to buy right now! Book a family session with us and you get to use this fun service! We offer it to our couples & seniors as well!


Check out our Family-What to Wear¬†board on our Pinterest Page! Here we also try and guide you on some outfit inspiration. Some of the pins may not be “buyable” but we are happy to help you find something similar if you see one or more outfits you are inspired by!

Fall Styled Family

It’s so important to be dressed season-appropriate for your session. This family nailed it with their outfits for their fall session using our code for Style & Select! Mom told us she ended up getting a lot of her clothes from Zara, which is one of our favorite sites to suggest for clothing for sessions.

We have such a blast helping our families get styled before their session no matter the season! We hope you reach out to us for help if you need it!

A couple go-to tricks: Try not to look too matchy-matchy! It’s best to have a variety of light and dark, various textures, patterns, solids, etc. We love variety! But pulled together of course;)
