  • Do you have a split of girls and boys? How many kids and what genders do you have? For us, my husband is the only guy so our last family picture (in fall) our girls wore pink and DH and I wore black. I have seen good ones where the males wear 1 color and females another. white is a good classic look with jeans.

  • May be a hard color to find. But Burnt orange might be pretty :( Or yellow! Button down shirts for boys and hubby and frilly shirts for girls and you!!!

  • I love the idea of everyone in jeans and different white tops. However we are doing jeans and white and navy blue for out pictures next week because DD has the cutest little white sailor dress with navy blue trim. I got the perfect navy blue top with anchor buttons and DH is wearing a navy blue and white striped polo. (He's actually in the Navy so I tried to get him in his dress whites but it was a no go!)

  • Weve done jeans and white shirts....its very good.
    I like to coordinate also so this year I am thinking all khakis and polos but a different pastel color of polo for each family member. It still coordinates.
    Ive done khakies and browns with some vanilla.
    Have fun!

  • Do you have mixed gender kids? When I only had 1 dd and 1 ds I did did blue but I made sure my dd had a giant blue bow in her hair.
    Dont forget to accent with jewelry too.
