What to Wear for Your Family Photos 2

Our first What to wear for your family photos post was such a success with our fans and followers that we wanted to do a second part series to give you even more ideas on what to wear for your family photos this year! We used the colors and styles of our beautiful Christmas cards to inspire the clothing ideas. Below are three very different but coordinated looks for the whole family.

1. Classic. Green has always been a signature color for Christmastime so why not incorporate a sprinkling of greens into this year’s family look? Navy blues and tans complement green and can be added as accents. This classic style was inspired by our classic Christmas cards.

Couples’ Shower Ideas: I Do BBQ

Guest post by Molly Suedbeck from Suburban Events (Read her bio below.)

I had asked my sister-in-law if we could throw her and her future husband a couples’ wedding shower. Sometimes it can be difficult to come up with couples’ shower ideas, especially a theme. I wanted to try and find a happy medium where the future bride and groom didn’t feel like the party theme was geared more towards one than the other. After talking with her about it, she thought a BBQ theme would be perfect and I couldn’t have agreed more! I used Pear Tree Greetings’ I Do BBQ Bridal Shower Invitations to set the theme.

As guests walked into the front entrance, they were greeted by pictures of the happy couple, strung with twine, across an old six panel door. This is a great way to incorporate the couple’s engagement photos that are rarely seen by friends and family.

Baby Photo Tips

Your new bundle of joy has arrived and now it is time for you to take photos to share with friends and family. To help you, we asked a photographer to share with us a few baby photo tips to help you out whether you’re a beginner or a bit more advanced.
baby photo tips

  • The first thing to remember when photographing babies is patience, patience, patience. Don’t expect to get a good shot in a couple of minutes. You are at the baby’s mercy and on their schedule. Be flexible, if the baby is sleeping or crying you can still get some great shots.
  • Use a plain solid colored background, stay away from patterned blankets. This draws attention away from the main subject.
  • Get down on their level. Get down on the floor and shoot from different angles.
