What to wear for your family portraits? | Boston family pictures

I get this questions from every one of my clients! Clothing is one of the most important aspects of your families pictures in my opinion. I decided I’d do a series of examples of some family portrait clothing ideas to help out my wonderful clients! This is the first of the series and is more a neutral/classic palette.

I know a lot of people are tempted to go all holiday-ee (ok, I may have just made that word up…) and dress in full blown Christmas outfits, but I usually suggest if that is what they would like to do, to also have regular outfits as well. Remember, we can always have awesome crazy red and green all over your holiday cards and then have neutral pictures. That way you can enjoy your pictures year round and hang them on your wall – especially when you’re investing in custom photography! We can certainly do pictures in holiday outfits as well, it’s really up you – and these are only my opinions after all!

Since it’s fall in the Boston area, and I do a ton of family portraits all through out Massachusetts, Boston, Boston metro west and beyond – let’s face it it’s cold. So these outfits below are mainly for chilly weather 🙂

If you’d like to book your fall family portraits anywhere in Massachusetts, Boston, Boston Metrowest, etc contact me at or 617-444-9039
