Fall is here and we enjoy capturing the beautfy of the outdoors with a family photo. Often in our family this photo is used for our Christmas card. 
How do you go about choosing outfits for your family photos? 
We called on our favorite local photographer for advice, Ashley Kimbrough and she gave us some great tips below!

Fall Photo Tip #1
Decide on the feel you want, formal vs. casual.  The location of the session may help decide this.  For example, formal attire in a field may not make sense.

Photo Tip #2
Coordinate outfits, but not identical outfits. 

How do you coordinate?  Pick a color scheme.  Pinterest can be your bff for this! Pick 3-4 colors to mix and match.

Photo Tip #3

 No big logos. Patterns are good,

as long as they don’t take away too much from your faces.

Photo Tip #4

Accessories are a fun way to add interest to the outfit and can even be fun for posing. Think hats or scarves that can be taken off and held or wrapped around. 

A linked necklace you can wind around your fingertips or cute sunglasses that can be pushed down for a playful look.
