Mom is the rose

You know if you look at a bouquet of flowers and when there are roses in there but other simple flowers around it that accent it? That's what we want then dressing for family photos 

  • Mom should stand out a little more than the rest. This can be done using patterns, texture in the clothing or just color.

  • Find mom's outfit first.

  • Dress everyone else's outfits around mom.

Choose a color palette

This is easiest done by creating a color mood board. You will see what colors can accent others and also not conflict with each other. 

This was our colour palette for our family photos last year. See photos below!

Boys vs. Girls

  • Other than mom, if there are other girls in the family, they can wear a mixture of solids or another accent pattern that doesn't conflict with moms outfit. Or matching patterns can be worn - but no more than 2 matching patterns!

  • Avoid all matching outfits. It can be very distracting and undermine the expressions in the photo.

  • Men/boys look excellent in solid colors or very very simple, not loud patterns. These clothes are meant to balance the girls (if there are any) and compliment mom.

Samantha and I met when I was going to school in Toronto, Ontario back in 2008, we hit it off right away and I remember her finding out I was engaged and telling my then new fiance that if he didn't treat me right, she would hunt him down! All in jest and good nature, of course, she is a friend you always dream of and has a heart of gold.

Fast forward 9 years and she lives outside Toronto, while I am in Iowa, how our lives have changed! Since we were making a road trip through Niagara Falls she invited us to have dinner with us and we snapped some pictures afterward! Samantha and I haven't seen each other since 2010 and so this reunion was so overdue! 

Samantha and her husband Danny have the most adorable three children you will ever meet. Our boys are super close in age and had a ball playing together. If only we lived closer!
