Family photography outfit ideas for boys

Getting your kids’ outfits ready for your family portrait session is so fun! You get to be creative, play stylist and choose outfits that both coordinate with yours and express who you are as a family, preserved as memories you’ll look back on for years and years to come.

When it comes to family photography outfits for boys, I think there’s nothing cuter than dressing your mini men as little gents because dapper and debonair? Never goes out of style!  Collared shirts, clean neutrals and classic styles will remain timeless, when they’re looking back on their albums 50 years from now.

Like I suggested in my post with outfit ideas for young girls, I recommend picking natural fabrics like linen and cotton where possible, and avoiding prints and logos altogether, as these can date quickly. For boys, I also recommend avoiding tee-shirts, instead opting for button-down shirts for a seriously cute look.

The opportunity for creativity really arises with accessories: Think bowties, suspenders, paperboy hats and little brogue shoes – oh my! Is there anything cuter?

One of my favourite lifestyle bloggers is Lauren from Hunters and Heels. She’s based in the UK countryside and has three young boys – her two youngest still at the toddler stage. Although mostly a more Wintry look than here in Aus due to the climate, I just love the way she dresses them and think their style is perfect for family photography outfits so if there was anyone I’d show you as inspiration for how to dress your boys, it’s her. Check her out!

Okay, now it’s time to browse through some of my favourite outfits ideas and inspiration to dress your little boys for family photo time!

This outfits is so adorable for a newborn! For the family who would describe themselves as laid-back and easygoing, the chambray colour is classic and photographs like a dream.

Oh me oh my! Braces and a paperboy cap. I can just see this on a gorgeous lieelt guy running around in a field with long grass and a beautiful sunset – can’t you?!

One for the more urbanite family. Strong colours that are still neutral enough not to run the show, and a cute little bow-tie for some stylish detail.

A slightly more sophisticated look for the boy who’s more of a tween. A classic button-down shirt and chinos will never go out of style.

What do you think of these outfits for boys?! Any ideas of your own that you’d add?
