What to Wear for Christmas Photos | Dubuque Photographer | Family Portraits

Everyone wants to look special for their holiday cards...here are some tips to help you with yours!

What Color Should We Wear?
This time of year it's okay to wear those traditional colors. Good colors are: gold, cream, red, green, and blue. These colors can easily be mixed and matched to create interesting combinations! Such as: gold+cream, red+green, green+blue, cream+green, gold+red, and so forth! Just remember to stick with 3 colors total so it doesn't look too crazy! Red is my favorite color so I may be biased but don't forget red! Red pops against snow, evergreens, and is a great accent color. This doesn't mean everyone has to wear red though. Break it up in your family and it will look very pleasing to the eye! 


What About Layers?
Christmas=cold. Though I am dreading the snow( I think it's pretty; it just ruins plans and roads!) most family portraits will be taken outside. On that note dress warm and layer, layer, layer. Think sweaters, jackets, coats, scarves, hats, and cardigans. If you choose to wear your coats in the pictures try to coordinate them: mittens, hats, scarves, and all. 



What About Prints?
You always want at least one person in your family wearing a print. It adds visual interest. Plaid is super popular! You could also wear printed sweaters(those are very in). Leopard print, sequins, and argyle are also very popular too.

Props?
This is such a fun time to use props. Your mind is the limit. Mugs, sleds, blankets, santa hats, ornaments, big letters that spell "joy"...whatever you can think of! Anything goes.

Happy planning!
