Family photoshoots are a great way to capture special memories with your loved ones, and what better way to do it than with matching mommy and me dresses? Whether you're planning a photo session for a holiday card, a milestone event, or just for fun, we've got you covered with some tips on how to style your mommy and me dresses to make your family photoshoot even more special.
Coordinate your colors: When choosing your mommy and me dresses, pick a color scheme that complements each other and the overall tone of the photoshoot. For example, if you're going for a beachy vibe, choose dresses in shades of blue, white or pastel colors. If you're going for a rustic feel, choose dresses in earthy tones like greens or browns. Remember, you can easily match dad or brother's shirts to our dresses and coordinating colors will help your family look cohesive in the photos.
Accessorize wisely: Accessories can add a touch of personality and style to your mommy and me dresses. Consider matching headbands, shoes, or jewelry to complete the look. But be careful not to overdo it. Keep it simple and elegant so that your family is the focal point of the photos.
Choose the right location: The location of your photoshoot can make a big difference in the overall aesthetic of the photos. If you're going for a classic look, choose a picturesque park or garden. For a modern vibe, choose an urban location with interesting architecture. Whatever location you choose, make sure it complements your mommy and me dresses and the overall style of your photoshoot. I love a girly indoor tea party theme for a photo shoot in our Betty dress or a beautiful outdoor scenery for our Mariah dress.
4. Mix and match styles: You don't have to match your daughter's dress exactly to create a cohesive look. Mix and match styles, such as a maxi dress for mom and a shorter dress for your daughter, or a floral print for mom and a solid color for your daughter. This will add depth and dimension to your photos while still maintaining the matching mommy and me theme. A great option is our Ava dress for your mini and Heidi for Mama. The dusty blue hue of our Heidi dress pairs perfectly with the floral accents of Ava without being totally matchy matchy.
5. Have fun with it: Most importantly, have fun with your mommy and me dresses and the photoshoot! Your joy and happiness will shine through in the photos and make for beautiful memories. Don't be afraid to get creative with poses, props, or even candid shots.
In summary, styling mommy and me dresses for a family photoshoot is all about coordination, accessorizing, location, mixing and matching styles, and having fun with it. With these tips in mind, you'll be able to create beautiful and memorable photos with your loved ones that you'll cherish for years to come.
