Style Guide // What to Wear for Family Photos

Hi friends! Long time no hearing from me, huh? I know I have been so MIA lately and I apologize. Like I said in my last blog post, I am really trying to find my niche in this blogging world and dang it's hard! Also, my mom visited this past weekend and I was focused on getting as much time with her as I could since she lives 8 hours away and I don't see her as much as I would like.

While my mom was visiting I thought it would be a great opportunity to visit the lake and snap a few family photos. It was very short notice so I didn't have much time to prepare for outfits, but I made it work. When it comes to family photos, I like to keep it very simple and not look so matchy-matchy if that makes sense. You want the picture to focus on the people in the photos and the moment, not what they are wearing. I went with blacks, grays, and reds for the colors because I knew my husband had a gray sweater he could wear and of course I had something to throw together because my closet is overflowing, literally.

Since I haven't had much time to shop for fall/winter clothes for the boys, I knew I had to get them tops to wear. Guess wear I found the cutest black and gray thermal tops for my two oldest? Walmart! I knew I didn't have time to make a trip to the mall and those tops were just perfect for it. I also found the cutest little buffalo plaid puffer vest for my little one. It was like it was meant to be so thank you Walmart for coming in clutch! 😉 This just goes to show that you don't have to go spend hundreds of dollars on outfits for family photos and items you may not even wear again!

I have attached some great clothing ideas for the entire family. Remember to keep it simple and not so matchy-matchy!
