Family photoshoots are a great way to capture memories and document the growth and changes of your loved ones.

However, one of the challenges of preparing for a family photoshoot is figuring out what to wear.

Here are some tips to help you choose the right outfits for your family photoshoot:

Coordinate, but don't match.

Choose colours and styles that complement each other, but avoid wearing matching outfits. Instead, opt for a colour scheme or theme to tie your looks together.

Dress for the location.

Consider the setting of the photoshoot when selecting your outfits. If you'll be outdoors, choose comfortable and practical clothing that will work well with the surroundings. If the photoshoot is in a studio, you have more flexibility with your clothing choices.

Choose comfortable clothing.

It's important that everyone feels comfortable in their outfits so they can relax and be themselves in front of the camera. Avoid tight or constricting clothing, and opt for pieces that are easy to move in.


Accessories can add personality and interest to your outfits. Consider adding scarves, hats, or statement jewellery to your looks.


Don't forget the details. Pay attention to small details like socks and shoes, and make sure they match the overall look of the outfits.

Prepare for any weather.

If the photoshoot will be outdoors, make sure to bring along layers in case it's chilly or bring sunscreen if it's hot.

Avoid busy patterns.

Solid colours and simple patterns tend to photograph better than busy patterns.

With these tips in mind, you'll be well on your way to choosing the perfect outfits for your family photoshoot. Remember to have fun and relax, and let your personalities shine through in your clothing choices.
