Fall 2009 Style – What to Wear

Stumped as to what to wear for your Family Portraits this year?  Take a peek at this awesome guide on What to Wear put together by Michele.   The thing to keep in mind is to find coordinating colors for the whole family, not necessarily the same matching colors.  Also, I usually tell my clients to pick out an outfit for the hardest one to find (usually mom or the sister) and then you can start to build the rest of the family around that outfit.

I recognize that we live in Texas and sweaters may not be the clothing of choice right now, but you can easily accessorize with scarves or vests…or layer your clothing and bring your jackets/sweater for the family picture and  then wear what you have under your jacket for rest of the session!

Here’s some examples:



In need of some more ideas?  Check this out:


All of these clothing choices came from www.oldnavy.com or www.bodenusa.com.  A lot of clothing websites will also have some outfit ideas for you as well.  I’ll list some great retailers in my next post for more resources.

I would love to put together some more clothing ideas for you…if you’re still feeling stumped or need some help, feel free to contact me.  Clients have sometimes sent me a link to their outfits online or taken a snapshot of what they have in mind and I’ve given them my input.  It doesn’t have to be new clothing, I can work with what you already have in your closet.  Or I may even have something of my own to add to their clothing choices.  (That’s the beauty of having both a boy and a girl!)

Happy Shopping!   Thanks, Michele, for your awesome styling!

    I do not even understand how I ended up right here, but I
    believed this publish used to be great. I do not recognise who you might be but definitely you’re going to
    a well-known blogger in case you aren’t already.
