What to Wear for an Extended Family Session

Preparing for an extended family session can be both exciting and daunting, but don’t worry—choosing the perfect outfits doesn’t have to be a headache. Opting for a cohesive look that ties everyone together while allowing individual personalities to shine is key.

A foolproof strategy? Start with one print as your anchor (I love a floral dress) and then build the rest of the outfits around it. Embrace a harmonious color palette featuring neutrals like blues, khakis, and soft pinks, allowing the chosen print to serve as your guide. This approach ensures that everyone coordinates effortlessly without looking overly matchy-matchy, creating a visually appealing ensemble that beautifully captures the spirit of togetherness and unity in your family portraits.
