What color do you dress your kids for pictures?

They take pictures twice a year back in my days at school it use to be once a year...why is that?
Anyway they are also taking a group picture they'll most likely be in the very back row I guess bc of their height they always seem to be in the
Thanks Ladies for sharing your ideas!!!

  • It doesn't matter, something nice. A solid color is better.

  • Since we dont have my step son when he gets his pictures done, I really cant answer.....
    My question is: Does it matter what color he/she is in? Make sure they are comfortable and look presentable. Case closed.
    Sorry if that sounded harsh.

  • well the school tells us the background color so they don't clash or blend in with it. then my kids actually pick out their own

  • I don't worry about what color it is, but my daughter usually wants to wear a dress that day and I prefer my son to wear a shirt with a collar that day. Solid colors generally look better in pictures.

  • for school photos I always let the kids choose what they wear.... they usually choose what ever their favorite items are and when I look back at the photos the memories flood back.

    for actual family photos I coordinate everyone so the focus is on the face. My kids look best in black.

  • Solid color, but not black or white. Blue is usually flattering.
