Attire for Family pictures at the beach...

We're having family pictures taken this weekend at a local beach. I'm planning on wearing black shirts & jeans. Is that a good combo for beach pictures, or should we go with different color tops? I plan on using some of the pictures of our Christmas cards.

Thanks in advance.

  • The jeans are good. But black tops is not good for the photos. White would work, unless you are all pale, pale pale. Someother light color would be good.

  • I wouldn't do black -- maybe khakis and white button down shirts for everyone, or jeans & white shirts. Since it's at a beach you kind of want a "casual" vibe. I think that would look really cute if everyone matched!

  • I wouldnt wear black. White would be best or a light blue would look good as well. At a beach light colors work better for pictures. Have fun with your pics!!

  • I would agree, all black would make me a little depressed, heh. But if you're going to use some of them for Christmas cards, why not take some Santa hats with you too?

  • Red tops would be good to use with Christmas photos...

  • The black top will not look good in a beach photo. White looks great with jeans. Also red is very flattering, as is blue. It will look best if everyone is in the same color or co-ordinating solid colors, no prints, stripes or plaids. We live at the beach and it's a favorite place for photos to be made.

  • Yikes.... I already bought us all black tops. LOL! I mainly wanted black to slim me down a bit. :-) I guess I'll have to find another color.

    Thanks Ladies!

  • Black will be fine. That's what I would chose too. The popular colors for beach photos is khaki and white, or jeans and white. We had beach photos done last summer. It was a popular spot with many photographers. There were so many groups all wearing khaki and white. It was pretty funny.

  • I didn't read the other responses. :( I think white tops with blue jeans and no shoes though. I've seen it, looks great!

    I THINK my photos are public. I have a couple of my kids on the beach a couple of holiday seasons back. They're wearing red holiday tops actually, if you wanna go peak feel free. lol

  • I've seen two families' pictures taken at the beach. Each person wore white shirts and jeans. Just beautiful with the water for the background. Hope they turn out great!!
