Prepare for Family Picture Outfits
In Part 1 of this series I shared ideas on how to prepare for family picture outfits. You can use your home decor as a guide and even shop from your closet. But when you aren’t able to find anything that I’ve got you covered. Sometimes when I know we have family pictures coming up I use that as an excuse to buy some new clothes for everyone. I’m always a bargain shopper though, and want to make sure I’m not making frivolous purchases just because. If I’m going to buy something, you better bet I will make sure it’s going to be well loved and well used.
Involve Your Kids
This is a great way to make sure that they are actually going to wear the clothes you buy for pictures more than once. There is nothing worse than buying something nice and just have it sit in the closet.
I’m not saying you have to give them complete control over what they are going to wear. Trust me. If my 12 year old had the choice he would be wearing sports shorts and a nike tee. In his case, I always work to find the most comfortable clothing I can for him in the color theme I have chosen.
Have 2-3 Outfits for them to choose from
People like options, kids and husbands included. Present them with 2-3 outfits and let them make the choice from there. That way you know that you will like whatever they choose and they will be happy too! Even let them wear the clothes a few times to make sure they are comfortable in them.. When it comes to family picture day there will be no fighting over putting a certain shirt or dress on. Let’s make this as stress free as we can for all of you!
Here are a few of my favorite places to buy clothes for family photos. If you have any places you love that I missed put them in the comments!
