For the casual family

Does your family vibe ring mostly laid-back and casual? Consider the clothes that convey that feeling — from the littlest kid to Mom and Dad. Think cableknit sweaters, jeans, boots and anything that you feel comfortable in and feel defines your family. You could also go for a matching photo, where everyone wears jeans and similarly-patterned cableknit sweaters — but this probably only works with younger children. Try getting your teens to dress up in family matching attire and you will get at least an eye roll.

Uber-cool family

Is your family a bit beyond traditional casual, each member having his or her own “cool” vibe? The blue and green colors in this group play nicely together and give off a relaxed feeling while still being a bit more dressed-up than casual. Mixing patterns that complement each other is another cool way each family member can throw in personality, yet still blend with the rest of the family.

Holiday cheer

Does your family love to dress up, show their style and kick the holidays into high-gear? Take it up a notch and go more glam for your family pictures this year. Everyone can add their own flair, from sequins to red shoes — and even the teenagers will be happy.

One of the best things about taking family pictures is how much you will enjoy them as your family grows! Time and money spent now is an investment you won’t regret later.


Style, Meet Life bioJessica Mefford’s “Style, Meet Life” After becoming a mom, I learned that it is difficult to find the time to get myself dressed each day. I also learned that it is actually really important for my mental and emotional well-being to get dressed. I noticed that when I looked more put together, I felt more put together. And, when I felt more put together, I was better able to help those around me at home and at work because I felt more confident. After talking with other moms and realizing they related to my getting dressed dilemma, I knew I wanted to make it easier for women to merge their personal style with the demands and time constraints of everyday life. I wanted to find ways to reintroduce our style to our life Follow Jessica on Style Meet Life, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
