Family Portrait Outfit Ideas

What is the best thing to wear for a family portrait?

Families

  • Dad – Facial hairHave a fresh shave or trim, and use a new razor to limit bumps and redness. Make sure nails are clean and trimmed. Wash your hands. Clean up your shoes. Moisturize and scrub away flaky facial skin (see above General advice). When you wash your face, pay attention to eye boogers and sleep crusties. For wardrobe, go for jeans or pants, polo or dress shirt with a belt, or go casual with just a T-shirt or untucked polo or dress shirt, etc. In general, whatever your wife tells you to wear. Again you don’t have to perfectly match the rest of the family, just wear something that coordinates.
  • Mom – Women know what to wear, but in general, unless you are extremely thin you may want to wear something that covers your upper-arms. Long or 3/4-sleeve tops are very flattering. If you wear jewelry, aim for subtlety, and be aware of it twisting or turning.
  • Kids – Same advice as above, but again, everything needn’t match, simply coordinate with the parents’ outfits. If Dad’s in a T-shirt, don’t put the kids in dress shirts – make it make sense.
