Avoid Busy Patterns

Busy and tight patterns can be distracting, especially if two people happen to be wearing patterns that clash. As a general rule, avoid small polka dots, pinstripes, small checks, animal prints, etc.

Choose complimentary Colors

When dressing for family portraits, ensure that no one is wearing a bright color (think neon or hot pink) that clashes with the rest of your group. Better yet, you can plan to wear colors that pair well together.

Don't Forget to iron

A wrinkly dress or tallit can detract from a great photo. If you plan to wear clothing that wrinkles easily, take the time to iron or steam those items before your shoot, and avoid folding them tightly.
