Family photos are cherished for years to come, whether they end up on holiday cards, in a book, or on your walls. They can instantly take you back to that moment in time. The time where the snow was falling. The time when you were pregnant. The photos on the beach. The one where you had the new puppy. That one where little Billy is picking his nose… No matter what the reason for the family photos, you’re going to be looking at them for years, and you want to be confident with what you and your family are wearing. Winter can be a tough season to to sort through coordinating color schemes, especially if you want it to be more Winter, and less red and green.

With holiday cards quickly approaching, we know many of you are looking for outfit ideas! We’ve put together three color schemes for you and your family, as well as several suggested items for each that are easy to shop!

PS if you’re looking for suggestions on who to get holiday cards printed through this year, these are some of our team’s favorites: Minted, Shutterfly, Artifact Uprising, Simply To Impress.

Velvets and satins mixed in rich emerald hues give the Fancy & Festive color scheme a more traditional holiday feel. Get multiple uses out of your photo attire by re-wearing these same pieces to holiday parties and family get togethers!

Who can say no to Winter white and some faux fur? I know I sure can’t! As soon as the trees are bare and the grass is brown [wah wah wah] the white seriously pops in photos making it look gorgeous! Throw on a faux fur vest or stole and brush the kiddos hair, because you’re photo ready!

Incorporate our favorite neutral [and favorite trend] into your family photos this year with animal print! Give leopard, black, and camel a try and see if your photographer can resist giving you a me-ow.

share this with your best girlfriends:
