Casual dress suggestions for your OKC spring family photos

Flowers, green, warmth – it’s all in the air as spring awakens and spring is also a fantastic time to get some family photos taken! Here are causal dress suggestions for your OKC spring family photos. (though really these dresses can be used for both spring and summer photos…so easy to dress up or down, layer, etc! Can someone say so practical too! ?! 🙂 )

The best thing to wear for your family photography session is something you love and feel good in. And it can be great to give it a little more flair by doing something just a step up from your standard weekend fare.

My number one tip – keep your clothing casual to allow for lots of movement (yes, go barefoot if you want. In fact that is welcomed!)  You don’t want to wear something that means you have to stay stuck in one position. When you choose to do a session with me that is going to include lots of kissing, tickling kids, spinning in circles and big hugs. (have you booked yet? Book now!)

So when trying to decide what to wear think more along the lines of spring picnic not a black tie wedding. 🙂 This means say no to plunging necklines, no to layers on layers or super tight and above the knee lengths are all out. I want you to be free Mama – so you can show how much you are in love with your kids.

These suggested dresses are:

  • flattering
  • come close to the $50 price range (some are less! and don’t forget to use coupons!)
  • something you can wear again and again (good-bye one time use!)
  • easily to coordinate with your family

Along with these places other great shops to check are: your local ROSS, Old Navy, Gap, PetalLush and Fehrnvi. All of these places have great options.

And psstt…you never have to feel like you have to wear a dress for my sessions. I am all for you dressing the way that makes you feel best.

This one from the Mainstreet Exchange is lovely and nursing friendly which is a plus! femimine touches and this a dress that can easily turn more dressy or stay causal.

I love this one from Carly Jean LA – a jacket over it can make it look different. It’s also nursing and maternity friendly which adds to the many ways it can be used!

Pink Blush is one of my favorite go to places for dresses. They have a huge selection and lots of maternity and nursing friendly dresses. This dress has two lovely color choices and is just one of many that would be awesome for a session.
