I love looking back at old family photos, but I also hate seeing how much the kids have grown. Time does fly by; it’s just crazy! 

But today, we will be unpacking colors, what to wear and how to style everyone. This can seem overwhelming, but I promise it’s not as daunting as it looks.

Below you’ll see several old family photo shoots with all different color palettes and themes (if that’s what you want to call it). The main idea is you want to stick to a color palette. Let’s dive right in … Here are my do’s and don’t when it comes to styling family photos;

Do pick a color palette: You can go for fall neutrals, earth tone colors, winter cools, you name it. 

Don’t use too many colors. Choose four max five colors to pair together. 

Do work with your photographer. You need to work closely with your photographer also and know your location. For example, if you’re shooting in the woods, you can go for warmer, richer colors. 

Don’t wear the same color. Avoid everyone wearing the same color. Unless you know exactly what you’re doing it can look dull, and very boring.

Do find inspiration. If you ever need color inspiration, Pinterest is an excellent source, but I also love going to Pantone

Do play with different textures. Whether it’s sweaters, or velvet, have fun with it!

Don’t be afraid to wear prints or patterns. Just don’t overdo it. For example, if you’re ever stuck with what colors to wear, choose a dress or a top with a print, pull the colors from that piece, and choose those colors for everyone else to wear! It works, every. time.
