Just Google bad family portraits to see why. You'll find lots of hilarious outfits and concepts which make great Facebook profile photos and future blackmail material. But when it's time to tell your family story you really want to get it right, and you want it to last! Not too long ago it was popular for the whole family to wear white shirts and blue jeans.

Listen to this episode for my tips on what to wear, how to dress your kids, and what not to wear for your family portrait session to ensure that everyone looks fantastic and your portraits last!
