With that in mind, try to incorporate something cozy into your outfits. A ski mask is terrifying. I love the classic look it gives to the dresses.
With that in mind, try to incorporate something cozy into your outfits. Flannel is a classic choice. It never gets old. Textured sweaters or a scarf with an interesting knit is also a good way to cozy up an ensemble.
Layers are also a good choice and they add variety to an outfit. Your photos are not work. Then, by all means do whatever you like. This is a short session, to be displayed for a short time. So be a little more relaxed. Feel free to click over to Awkward Family Photos for more where that came from….

Sticking with a dress code of neutrals is a very safe way to make sure your family looks awesome in your photos. Neutrals can mean a variety of things. Cream, tan, brown, gray, navy blue, pale blue, black, muted yellows. Use the color as boldly or as sparingly as you like, but make it consistent.
You can go with one bright pop of color, or weave a color throughout to keep everyone consistent. These images do a great job of demonstrating how you can add pops of color to your outfits without looking cheesy or too uniformy. This family does a good job of weaving red through an otherwise neutral pallet. From Rebekah Westover Photography. This family used mustard as their accent. See the whole session at Erin Summerill Photography. This vibrant portrait comes from Chelsey Bell Photography.
So, even though your family might not normally go overboard with color—if you are feeling vibrant this is a good time to make it happen. He probably never will be.
Accept it and move on. Sure, we can all look at the Eddie Bauer ads and think how classy those guys look. Not in a million years. Your husband and your family will look much happier during the portrait session if they feel good about what they are wearing. Let them look normal. Let them wear things they will wear again. And your photos will look like you—which is the point. Kristen Duke Photography has a mega post on this topic.

I selected this vintage reindeer fabric that I found at Joann Fabrics for the main focal print of the dress. We got to see the show, went to lunch and spent a little time in the American Girl store………it was a wonderful day.
But once I selected the reindeer fabric, I wanted to choose a more traditional print for the accent fabric. I pretty much sewed the dress according to the way I wrote the pattern. The only adjustment I made was on the skirt. So rather than doing a double layer skirt as the pattern calls for, I chose to do an accent band at the bottom of the overskirt. It was a very easy adjustment and gave a similar look with less fabric. I also used rick rack trim on the bib front of the dress and added it into the seam of the front waistband.
I added a layer of rick rack on top of the bottom of the front waistband as well. Now I will warn you, velveteen can be pretty messy to work with and I did have lots of little bits flying around, but it was worth it. I love the classic look it gives to the dresses.
As for our little 2-year old, Caspian Finn, he wore his red corduroy shirt from last year and had a handsome red sweater on another day. The girls got to wear their dresses quite a bit in December, to the musical in the city, to their school performances and parties and to Christmas Eve mass. On Christmas Day the girls wore their dresses from last year since they still fit. These are the pieces your children will keep in their memories forever!
