So you’re having family photos done this summer or fall and just have no clue what to wear? Have no fear! I’ve got you covered with the best affordable dress options to have you looking and feeling amazing for your family’s summer photo shoot. I always recommend that moms pick out their wardrobe first, as we are usually the ones who have the hardest time finding something we LOVE and that will look great! If you pick your outfit out first then everyone else is easily built up around you. Outfits for your husband and kids can be coordinated around your perfect maxi dress!
Why a long flowy maxi dress you ask?
Well, there are several reasons why I always recommend a dress for moms and women in general! Even engagement shoots!
What colors or pattens work best for summer scenes?
I tend to lean towards softer colors for summer. I loves whites, creams, sage green, pale blues, soft yellows, and pinks. Those colors look great with the spring and summer backdrops of greens and blues. You can pick up a patterned dress for yourself or for the kids, but keep the patterns small and pull out the colors from it to pull a whole look together.
So what dresses are just right and won’t break the bank?!
I’ve pulled together quite a few dresses from some of my go to dress shops for you to shop from, or get inspiration from.
All of these dresses have a defined waist, and a flowy bottom with extra material for movement, which makes them perfect! Just picture you playing with the bottom of your dress walking through a field of wildflowers, or your toddler holding onto the bottom of your dress. So pretty!
