What to Wear: Mother & Daughter Portraits

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought a few sample outfits for a mother and daughter portrait session would be a nice feature. These outfit ideas also work great as a place to start out with for outfit concepts for a full family session. I love capturing small groups within families at portrait sessions, to show a variety of relationships within the family. The outfits below are from Abercrombie, Hollister, Old Navy and Wet Seal. You definitely do not need to break the bank to come up with some great, coordinating outfits for your portraits, or even a fun Mother’s Day out on the town.What to wear for a mother/daughter portrait session or mother's dayHere is an example of some great coordination from Melissa and Emma. I took a few minutes out of the family session while the guys were changing into their next outfits to capture just mom and daughter.

    Really great ideas. Is it sad that I’m more drawn to the teenage clothing? lol! I love the image and texture in it and yes… great clothing choices!

    I’ve got to start doing this…suggesting choices for clothes. Yours suggestions are wonderful and that coral color in your sample image is just stunning. Very nice!

    Thats a fun idea, and so much more interesting than white shirts and jeans. 🙂
