What to wear for family photos


Pulling together outfits for a photography session… You either:



C. GET EXCITED… ONLY TO FALL FLAT. (Because you’re just “meh” about your selections after way too much effort.) 


For my B. and C. clients… I so desperately want to help. (A. Clients… I have a feeling you’re going to LOVE THIS too!)

I understand what photographs well and provide all kinds of advice/tips/tricks before we shoot, but new in 2018 – because I want you all to look and feel your absolute best – I’m giving all of my clients something even better than advice. An added benefit, when choosing me as your family photographer, in the form of complimentary access to STYLE & SELECT!

Style & Select is outfit coordination, made easy!! Finally. In 3 easy steps, you can cross “what to wear” off your list.

  1. Fill out a questionnaire. (Provide the number of family members and their corresponding size/gender, the style that fits your family/session, and lastly 1-2 color schemes you want to see.)
  2. Make selections for each family member and view them side-by-side at the top of the results page.
  3. Shop direct from the provided links (from trusted stores like Target, Old Navy, Pinkblush, etc…) OR email the selections to me/yourself so that you can shop on your own or just use your selections as inspiration.

It’s just that easy.

Allow me to prove it… I styled 4 families in LESS THAN 10 minutes (varied kids ages/genders with different color schemes).
So Easy. And it was enjoyable. Check them out below!!

Needless to say, I’m crazy excited to offer this little perk, at no cost to the families I love so much.

Go… look your best. I’m excited to photograph you all looking amazingly coordinated… and so in love with your family!

No added to-dos, just added memories to your life.
