One of the ways I serve my clients is by sending them a style guide before their session that includes outfit inspiration and overall tips to better the experience. Below are some outfit selections and tips for choosing holiday outfits for the family.

A few tips for choosing your holiday outfits:

* Work with what you already have for the season, but don't be afraid to add in something new.

* Stick with a certain style or color scheme. You can mix different shades of the same color for a more cohesive but effortless look.

* Add simple textures such as velvet, corduroy, or chunky knits to elevate the look.

* Consider each person's style and listen to their feedback. Stay true to yourself.

Final tip: Remember that we are capturing the perfect moment not the perfect outfit. Just be natural and have fun!

Enjoy your holiday season!
