Depending on the season, you want to wear clothing that fits the weather and the time of year. Soft/pastel colors for Spring, warm colors for Summer and dark/earth-toned colors for Fall. Coordinate each person’s outfit to pull from the other, but do not match exactly. I recommend solid colors, simple patterns and no jeans. (Unless you are doing a country themed shoot)
Dress to impress! Men/boys should have their hair cut before the session and ladies, pull out that cute dress you have been wanting to wear! After all, these are your professional portraits that you will look at for years to come.
Paint the Moon has an excellent article for help on what to wear and how to coordinate your outfits for your next family session.
