Wondering what to wear for family photos? Today I’m sharing fives examples of what to wear for holiday family photos.
Without a doubt, I absolutely love having family photos taken for holidays or special occasions. Granted there is a level of stress that comes with dragging your kids (and husband) to a photo shoot, the end result is worth the hassle. When you have a great photographer holding the camera, you really only have to worry about what your family is wearing.
Colors to Wear for Family Photos
1. Red or Maroon
Red is a traditional holiday color and easy to wear for family photos if paired with white, khaki or black.
2. Black and Gray
If you like dark colors, black and gray go well together. Our daughters wore a very light pink dress with dark gray tights.
3. Yellow and Navy
If you’re looking for non-traditional holiday colors, yellow and navy are an easy option. Mustard yellow, dusty orange, and chambray are color varieties for family photos.
4. Matching Christmas Pajamas
You don’t need to pick a color scheme for your holiday photos if everyone is wearing matching Christmas pajamas. Check here for the latest deals on Christmas Pajamas for the Family.
You don’t always have to match your family exactly though…
5. Festive (plaid, red, green)
A family can’t go wrong wearing festive colors for holiday photos. Anything red, green, plaid or tartan is perfect for a Christmas themed photo shoot. A family can mix plaids too – red plaid, green plaid, and solid colors from the patterns go well together.
