This is the fun part about family photos- picking what everyone is going to wear! Seeing all the coordinating outfits come together is so aesthetically pleasing. Not everyone has to wear the same shade to achieve the color scheme you desire! We recommend switching it up and incorporating pops of other matching colors for a more fashion forward look!

Once you have your vision in mind, it’s time to set things into motion! Getting together an entire family can be difficult with everyone’s busy schedules. It’s best to plan ahead and find a time that everyone can commit to! When deciding on a photographer, make sure to check out their previous work to ensure you love their shooting style. Three days before the official shoot, send out a friendly reminder to all the photo shoot stars to bring their best smiles!
It’s All About Location
Where you decide to have your photo shoot will totally set the tone of your photoshoot! There are so many ways to get creative with this, even if you’re keeping it inside! We recommend decorating and matching the color scheme to your outfits! Christmas themes are one of our favorites, and perfect for this time of year!
Lighting is Key
You don’t need a fancy camera and a glamorous backdrop to have the perfect family photos! Whether you use natural lighting or studio lighting, darkness can cast a literal and metaphoric shadow on your precious family photos. Keep things bright just like your smiles and everything will be perfect!
Smile for the Camera!
Now that everything is together and the fam is looking extra fabulous, it’s time to get your smile on! Shine bright and have the best family photoshoot EVER! You’re making eternal memories that you and your kids can look back on forever!
These are a few essential steps to consider when setting up this year’s family photoshoot! There are so many ways to get creative with it and add your own family flare into it! Don’t forget to pull out the grandest Itty Bitty Toes outfit for your little one!
