Deciding what to wear for your family portrait session is a task well worth your time and effort. I always recommend picking out outfits at least a week or two before hand and laying everyone's outfit and accessories out to see all together. Wash and iron a day or two before your session so that you can spend time before your session making sure everyone in the family looks clean and neat.  To all you moms: You come first! Make sure you get something special for the session that makes you feel really confident. I know you are always the one behind the camera so now is the time to shine.  Here are some highly recommended tips along with some styling ideas.
