Family Photo Outfit Ideas Summer

View All

Have a family photo session come up and looking to find family photo outfit ideas for summer? Scrap the hours on Pinterest looking for ideas. Take a look at the ideas below and pick a color palette that best suits your family. The looks below are carefully curated and guaranteed to photograph beautifully with my timeless, light and airy style. Throw in beautiful greens and some blooming flowers and…chef’s kiss! Family photos you’ll want hanging on the walls of your home for years to come.

Family Photo Outfit Ideas for Summer: Neutrals

Neutrals are always a safe bet – they tend look good on many different skin tones and with different hair colors. They also blend with most any surroundings, especially outdoor sessions. Greens from grass and trees, gravel pathways and blossoming flowers mixed with neutrals make for a super organic look that won’t go out of style.

Family Photo Outfit Ideas: Blues

I photograph a lot of families with some sort of blue in their outfit choice. And it’s no question as to why – blue can bring out the blues in eyes, and tends to look good on a variety of skin tones. The key is a light or soft blue, and not a bright or eccentric blue. Take a look at the palettes below which are still neutral in nature but do incorporate some color with blues.

Family Photo Outfit Ideas: Pinks and Blues

If you’re looking to incorporate a little more color, or maybe you have a little girl who just LOVES to wear pink (I think mine will be a pink and purple girl herself!), then incorporating pink can still work really well with the nice green tones of the summer outdoors. Pink can compliment natural rosy cheeks and lips and works really well when mixed with other neutrals or colors like blue.

Family Photo Outfit Ideas: Greens and More

To continue building on the previous color palette, and if you want to incorporate more than just pinks and blues, but still want outfits that will photograph beautifully, take a look at the below. It can be rally nice to incorporate soft greens (like sage green or a soft forest green), or warmer colors like salmon pink, mustard yellow or golden tones. Take a look at the inspiration below!

Where to buy family photo outfits?

When it comes to shopping for clothes, that task can still feel daunting. My favorite places to shop for family photos outfits for summer photo sessions are stores like J.Crew, Anthropologie, Free People, H&M, Rylee and Crew, Noralee, and Quincy Mae.

Did you find inspiration for your upcoming photo session and family photo outfit ideas for summer? I hope so! The important thing to remember is that these are the palettes that work best with my style of photography: light and airy, timeless imagery.
