 We're gonna be getting our family portraits done soon and I wanted to do something cute. Should I get the three girls matching dresses or should I get them the same dress in different colors? I was kinda thinking about the jeans and a white or black top? Any suggestions!?

 We did jeans and white tops for all of us when we got our pictures taken.

 That's what I was thinking, But my SO pretty much only wears black so we'd have to do the black tops. Hmmm I dont know what to do! lol Its our first family portrait ever.

We've did jeans, with red shirts and a flag background for all the kids(nieces, nephews and cousins) once as a gift for the grandparents.

And for family we did all red shirts, blue jeans and kids had bib overhauls(they were little) and a in the country themed back round.

I like white tops with khakis or jeans. Unless you have really fair skin color.White can wash  you out.  Light blue usually works for everyone, as does pink, sky blue and eggplant(purple). I like the matching dresses idea. Red also almost always looks great.I would choose by picking a color that looks good on you. Then put the same color on the rest of the family or the color that is to the right or left on a color wheel.  Go luck and be sure to show us after.

white dresses for the girls, white collared shirts with khaki's  for the boys and a white blouse for you..on a white background would be very pretty..I used to work for Lifetouch portraits and I always liked black on black or white on white. that big picture looks great on a wall year round (unlike a spring background or holiday background) 

Its my body and I'll do what I want to.

I think some plain white cotton dresses would be really beautiful.  I'll see if I can get some pics for you.

 Ya, black! Notice the black trend I have lol. We're all blondes so it would show up better too.
