fashion friday: photo shoot

Tomorrow we have a family photo shoot with Kate Giovinco Photography and I am totally stressed out about what to wear.


Its going to be outdoors and perfect fall weather, so I’m thinking sweaters and jeans?I want to coordinate, but not be matchy-matchy. Here’s a few tips that I’m going by…


Group photos can bring one of the season’s hottest trends, color-blocking, into action. Arrange your family in different bold hues for a stylish, runway-ready look! Recommended color choices this season include jewel tones like rich purple, cobalt blue, emerald green and lipstick red. We went with reds and pinks paired with neutral gray!

Get Comfortable

Cozy knits, specifically in shades of ivory or chocolate brown, will be trending this holiday season; and the textures of sweaters can play beautifully in photos. Pair with similarly colored bottoms for just the right amount of coordination. How cozy is this?


Opt for one large statement piece and one small accent piece per person, such as a hair accessory or scarf – minimal accessories with maximum impact.

I’m leaving towards cozy knits in grays and blues… what do you think?

Have you ever done a family photo shoot? What did you wear?
