Family Photo Outfit Coordination

Hello dolls!
In leiu of our weekly Bloggie Bestie post this week, we have a special guest post from our AMAZING sponsor,

Alisha Hunsaker Photography!!!

Today Alisha is going to share a few ideas with you on how to coordinate your outfits for a family photo shoot!


Hello Truly Lovely readers!

My name is Alisha Hunsaker and I am a photographer for Alisha Hunsaker Photography. I am so happy to be sponsoring Truly Lovely! If you would like, please check out my website, my blog or me on Facebook!

As a photographer, I often get asked what to wear for a photo shoot. Let me tell you, the combinations that you could come up with are endless! To help you out a little, I have put together a few idea boards for what you could wear for your family photos.

Hopefully, if you are in an outfit rut, this will provide a little inspiration.

First of all, we have a classic that I love. The Primary Colors. Any combination of this works and it always looks nice.

Next, we have Pink and Gray. A family I took photos of a while back used these colors and I have loved them ever since!

Third, Teal and Black, and Green and Black. You can pretty much use any color with black and it would work. These just happen to be two of my favorite colors!

Last we have Purple, Green and Blue. One of many combinations that works with more than just one or two colors.

Well, I hope this gave you some ideas, or at least gave you motivation to create your own unforgettable combination! Good luck!


I’m loving the teal and black combo…
What about you? What’s your favorite color combination for family photos?
Alisha has a fun portfolio over on her website that includes lovely family photos, sweet engagements, beautiful weddings and more! If you’re looking for a photographer in the Phoenix, AZ area, we HIGHLY recommend her!
Let her know we sent you. 😉


  1. A very timely post as I’m trying to figure out what to have us wear for family photos. I always get stumped trying to coordinate colors over a variety of sizes. These give me a good place to start. Thanks!

      I agree! When you have to dress several shapes and sizes, that’s when it becomes difficult! Thanks for the visit today girl!

  2. I’ve gotta send this to my mom. We’re doing family pictures in October and there will be anywhere from 9 to 12 people in them.

  3. Great ideas, Alisha! Such a refreshing change from the white/khakis you see in so many family portraits.
    TGIF, ladies!

  4. Love this! The green and black is so unexpected and cool!

  5. Thanks for all your sweet comments!

  6. This is a great post! I love the pink and grey coordination- so helpful when thinking about family photo shoots.

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

    i have a family of 6, 3 boys and 1 daughter , plus my husband and I. i am looking for help on choosing outfits for family pictures! I bought a dress for my daughter with greens, browns, & a bit of yellow in it. could u give some ideas of of what everyone else could wear.

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      So the best way to coordinate without looking too matchy-matchy is to stay within the same color group. Sounds like you already have yours, green, brown and yellow. Mom might wear a yellow top and brown skirt or pants or jeans. Dad can be in a green or brown shirt. Each of the boys could wear a shirt in one of those three colors then little miss in her dress ties it all together! Hope that helps! Let me know if you have other questions!
