Hey there mamas, it’s time for another round of fall family photo outfit inspiration for my plus-size babes out there. Check out 2021 here and 2020 here. It’s 2022 and we’re about to live, laugh, love our way through a third COVID fall, plus a bonus round of monkeypox this year! There’s nothing like some retail therapy (and feeling freaking fabulous for our fall photos) to help us through.
If you’re new to this game, I’ll repeat the best advice I ever got about dressing my family for photos: start with mom’s outfit first, then build around that. If you’re planning on taking fall family photos this September or October and looking for some outfit inspo for yourself, this is the post for you.
A few things to know:
My style trends toward basic bitch, and I have no regrets.
The dresses, pants, and tops I’m sharing can be dressed up or down to flatter an apple shape, ‘cause that’s what I’m working with.
We’re going to focus on items that are reasonably priced and that you would hopefully wear more than once.
In other words, if you’re looking for ultra fancy or high fashun recommendations, this is not the resource for you.
Now that we’ve established some ground rules (they’re more like guidelines anyway), here are my top five outfit picks for fall family photos this fall:
There you have it – my top five suggestions for plus-size mamas looking to get inspired for fall 2022 family photos. Go forth and shop!
And now that you’ve solved the hardest challenge of family photos this fall, it’s time to book your session with Maddie before her calendar fills up. Her 15-minute mini sessions are perfect for first timers or folks with energetic kids who might not make it through a longer photoshoot. And this year Maddie is also offering half-sessions on Wednesdays, which is a budget-friendly way to get a few more keepsake photos of your family this fall. Working with Maddie is always fun and stress-free and I absolutely LOVE that every year, I’m ready to go with a gorgeous photo of our family to put on holiday cards, updated shots of my kids to gift to great grandmas, and stunning images and display on our gallery wall. It’s a win-win-win.
