FALL FAMILY PHOTOS PLANNING (+ giveaway!)

Hey there, Veronica here. Today I’m sharing some tips to get your family ready for fall photos. It can be stressful, no? Planning what everyone should wear and what color scheme is one of the toughest parts. You want everyone to match, but not be too matchy matchy (leave the twin style classic solid color polos and khakis at home!)

Below, I’ve done all the work for you. Here are my picks for children for a cohesive and fresh family photo.
