What to wear in family portraits

I am a big advocate of taking time to plan outfits  for portraits.  I think it has to be well thought out, while bringing out the personality of the family.  Long gone are the matchy matchy days, and I think coordination is the key.  Pick a color scheme of 2-3 colors, while using black, brown, white or gray along with those 3 colors.  Since I have 4 children, I’ve got 2 winter options for a family of 6…just some ideas to get your wheels turning.
