Fall Family Photo Outfit Ideas

I’ve got a round up of some of my favorite fall clothing ideas for photos for you today! 

This fall I’m really digging

  1. Textured fabrics: chambray, linen, gauzy cotton, and wooly sweaters/jumpers

  2. Golds, burgundy, olive green, navy, pink and oatmeal for a neutral 

  3. Families that don’t mind playing and being silly together

Mom Photo Outfit Inspo

Now, I know not every woman likes to wear a dress, but I also know that after photographing lots of women and families, dresses are consistently the most flattering on all female body types. No matter your size or shape, there is a dress style out there that will look great on you! Dresses also bring a feeling of softness and movement to images as they move in the wind and with you. Of course women look great in pants and a blouse or sweater as well, but I always prefer a dress with its feminine look, movement, and ability to hide just about any and all problem areas depending on the style you get!

Here’s a link to my Mom wardrobe pinterest board and below you’ll find a few of my favorites for this season!

Dad Photo Outfit Inspo

Dad’s are pretty easy! Get them a button up shirt, henley thermal, or sweater and you’re good to go! If it’s cool enough in Fresno when you’re getting photographed, I always think a ¾ zip sweater looks nice and polished on guys, but leaves it a little casual with either a t-shirt or a button up shirt peeking through the top. I don’t usually recommend a polo shirt as they tend to look a little more dated in pictures right now. 

Below you’ll find a few of my faves for this season and here is a link to my dad wardrobe pinterest board!

Girl photo outfit inspo

Just like mom’s I think wearing a dress always looks sweet on a girl, no matter what her age! I also think jumpsuits look very cute and might be more appealing to those anti-dress type girls.

Boy photo outfit inspo

Boys are similar to dad as well! Sweater, collared shirt or henley are my top picks for boys. Pair that with a pair of trousers and you’re golden! To switch it up a little, there are now jogger style pants made in twill and cotton which might be a good compromise for a more particular boy while still looking nice. Adding suspenders or a cardigan is always a good way to create variety.

Baby photo outfit inspo

I love to put babies in one pieces for photos. Whether that’s a romper, sweaterset, onesie dress, anything that will snap down is great! The reason for that is so you don’t have to worry about constantly pulling down their top or dress during the session! Babies are so wiggly and you’re holding them the whole time, it’s much harder for their clothes to stay in place and having them in a one piece outfit definitely helps with this!

Check out my favorites below! You’ll be able to find a baby specific board under either my girl wardrobe board or my boy wardrobe board.
