Colors for pictures?

Do you think a white shirt with gray, light blue and dark blue stripes is OK for a picture?

Later today I am taking DS to get his 1 year pictures done. I like the shirt but everyone tells me you should put bright colors on your kid for pictures. He doesn't really have any plain bright colored shirts, the bright ones all say something on them and I didn't want a shirt that says something on it. I was thinking since we will be right at JCPenny I could probably find a nice shirt there but I also don't think there is anything wrong with the shirt I picked out.

 I think simple colors are the best.  The focus of the pic should be the person, not their clothes!   I wore a beige button down shirt for my grad pics 30 years ago and you can't tell if the pic was taken yesterday.   My friends who wore the trendy, colorful clothes are definately dated in their pics!

 Oh, and I don't like the fussy backgrounds either.  Pics with plain backgrounds and colors look classier, IMO.

Sounds like the shirt you picked out would be fine. I'm not a fan of bright colored clothes on anyone in pictures.. It takes away from the person IMO.. ofcourse that also depends on the background and the photographer! Good Luck with your choice!

I have a coupon to get a good amount of pics for $10 so I don't think I get to choose the background lol. The shirt he is wearing is really cute but I just wanted some more opinions.

 I'm pretty sure you will.  They have those pull down background scenes at every pic place I've ever been to!
