Outfit combination for family pictures

It's that time of the year for us, family picture time. Though it's always a stressful time trying to figure out what we are going to wear, I absolutely love putting clothes together for our family. I love doing these picture in the Fall because the foliage is amazing and frankly it's not too hot or too cold which always makes for a fun experience. You can see the outfit combination that we wore for our family pictures in 2012201320142015.

Every year, I have a theme in mind and I try make the colors work together. Since we will be using these pictures around our house and for our Christmas cards, I always tend to go with red. Family outfits with red just pop so well and add that extra bit of color to otherwise dull walls plus I think my family looks rather nice in red :). It is so tricky to plan for a family of six but luckily for me I love to have my boys in matching outfits so it makes my life so much easier.

My hubby thinks I have too much time on my hand because I was setting these up in our bedroom with such care :). He can't wait for me to go back to work so that I am too busy to do these fun things. Little does he know that I will make the time for my silliness because I enjoy it so much :).

So which one of these outfit do you like best?

Outfit 1 - This one is my favorite, I love the red dress, I love the tint of red everywhere but I wonder if it's too much red
Outfit 2 - I love this one too because the red is a bit toned down with the dress so that might be easier on the eyes but the red dress is still my favorite
 Outfit 3 - I love the red dress but I feel hubby's outfit is out there all by itself but maybe it makes sense not to have all that red
Which one is your favorite? Which one do you think we should go with. We have our pictures in 2 weeks and I am excited for this photoshoot. This will be Emilia's first real photoshoot with our six pack and I can't wait to update our walls with pictures that include the 4th and final member of our family :)


  1. I like all of the red. It will show up nicely in the photos. I like the first combination the best.

  2. I like 1 & 3 ... you can't go wrong with that combo. The day of just have hubby try on both shirts and check yourselves in the mirror. You'll know for sure once it is on him :)

  3. I love 1 and 3 is my second choice. Any chance you can find a similar checkered shirt for hubby in black instead of blue? Kinda to match more with Emilia? Since the boys match closer to your red, would be a nice combo to have baby girl match closer to hubby.
    If not, 1 is definitely my favorite too.

    You already have a BEAUTIFUL family so anything you wear will look amazing.
