Are you ready for this

let me take a guess

family photoshoots stress you out…

You really do want photos of your family, but you just don’t know where to start. You feel the pressure to document these precious years, which you KNOW are flying by, but the self-doubt and insecurity has you dreading, or altogether avoiding, booking that shoot.

Even if you could nail down a date to make it actually happen the anxiety of how to dress everyone is only the beginning of the struggles…

I Get it! Planning Photo Shoots is Challenging!

Paralysis & Decision Fatigue

Choosing outfits for multiple family members – each with their own style, personality, and size – can be overwhelming. This is especially challenging when trying to coordinate colors and styles to create a cohesive look.

Lack of Fashion Knowledge

Without a keen sense of fashion or understanding of color theory, it can be difficult to know what looks good together, leading to mismatches, clashing or a lack of visual harmony. Some styles look great on camera, others definitely do not…knowing this information makes selecting outfits so much easier.

Time & Budget Constraints

Busy moms often have limited time to shop for and assemble outfits. This makes the process stressful and rushed. Balancing the desire for high-quality, attractive outfits on a budget can be challenging, especially when considering more formal clothing.

Self-Doubt & Insecurity

You feel a pressure to create picture perfect photos for sharing with family and friends, making gifts with the pictures or for use on social media, which leads to self-doubt and anxiety about styling choices or the final outcome. You don’t want to waste your time!

I’ve Been there, done that, I Can Help You move forward

I completely understand the challenges and joys of styling a family for photoshoots, as a mom of 7 myself! The task of coordinating outfits for a large family can feel like a monumental undertaking. I’ve been through the trials of mixing and matching styles for different ages and personalities, ensuring comfort while maintaining a cohesive look.

This guide is born out of the real-life lessons and successes I’ve had in dressing my big, beautiful family. I’m excited to share these insights with you, to turn what can be overwhelming into an enjoyable and memorable experience.
