What to wear for Family Portraits

You may recall a few weeks ago we offered our services FOR FREE to any willing takers for all matters decor, style, and shopping. The perfect gift from us to you, just in time for the holiday season. Well, today – we had our first opportunity to help a friend out with a style dilemma.

Many of you may already know Jackie from her fantabulous site, Sweetie Pie Pumpkin Noodle {how can you not love her with a website name like that}. Jackie found herself in quite a conundrum when preparing for family portraits this week. I know the feeling – I usually end up buying WAY TOO MANY pieces and then throwing it all together at the last minute. Fortunately, Jackie had purchased some amazing pieces but asked for a little help pulling all the outfits together. Here’s what we recommended for her outdoor photoshoot:


Jackie had already purchased that scrumptious cardigan for herself, the floral dress and both pairs of Old Navy shoes for her daughters, and a similar brown sweater for her husband. We recommended she pick up the sweater coat, skirt and tights from BabyGap and the vintage style top also from Anthropologie.

How adorable will this family be posing in these woods and on this bridge. Jackie, we hope you have a wonderful photo shoot and we can’t wait to see your pictures!

    • Jackie, I would do just about anything for you – your tumblr account provides me with endless eye candy and makes me want to redecorate daily. Anytime you’d like some assistance (wardrobe shopping, craft projects, or design related) please don;t hesitate to ask. BTW, your pictures were fabulous – what a bunch of cuties :)

  • Your outfit selections ROCK!!!! Seriously… you are a photographers DREAM COME TRUE. AWESOME choices. I love how you mixed the patterns and textures—-her photos are going to be incredible!

    • You are far too sweet – visited your site today and wished right away I could have taken part in your Crayons themed week. I had an idea for a theme week of my own (alas, I can’t think of it tonight) but once it pops in my head again, I’ll let you know. It would be super cool to feature on your site! Also, thanks so much for the comments – I’m adding this quote to a press piece I’m putting together. Let me know when you’re ready for your personal makeover – I can’t wait to get started. Happy Holidays (can’t believe how fast they’re coming)
