Styling a Family Photo

Today was a perfect day in downtown Marietta, Ohio. My little fam and I spent time eating lunch at one of our favorite spots, The Galley. Afterwards we took a stroll downtown and visited some of the local shops. ย But I’m writing to share a tip when it comes to pairing outfits together for a family photo. Now, unfortunately my husband was on the other side of the camera but I can show how I paired my daughter’s outfit with mine.

A lot of people tend to go super matchy because they aren’t quite sure what else to wear. If you’ve been following me on this journey you know that I love mixing patterns so what better time to do so than in a photograph! I chose a striped maxi dress from Target for my look which is always a great neutral pattern. I had Harper wear a more solid color similar to the color in my maxi dress and we both have a ruffle. Her print is very miniature and playful for a little one which makes this work perfectly (her dress is from Target as well).

I have to take a moment and show a close-up of the Mother’s Day present my husband got me this year which is a buffalo tooth necklace by Lynne and Lucille from Wit & Whimzy (one of my favorite jewelry designers).

Harper chose her own shoes today. This was a proud mama bear moment because I suggested her polka dot sneakers because I thought she’d want to wear her fluorescent light-up sketchers lol. Girlfriend surprised me and said “what about the ones with the bows?!” Done and done. She’s got an eye already :).

Next time you go to coordinate outfits for a family photo or a couples photoshoot think outside the box so you can be yourself but incorporate a cohesive look with your photo partner. Need help? Message me ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks, Loni! The brick wall with some of the red color was in the alley close to Mahone Tire right past the Brewery. The all white brick was over by Top Drawer on the way to The Galley.
