Ivy City Co dresses are PERFECT for family photos. Whether you’re mixing or matching, we’ve got you and your little gals covered. Here’s what we’re loving for 2020 portraits:
 

  If you’re lucky enough to call the mountains home, head there for family pictures! The changing leaves make for a stunning backdrop, and fresh air is always a win. For this look, opt for matching Capri dresses with simple accessories, and have your boys dressed in deep fall colors with cream or white shirts and pops of leather in their shoes and belts. For our Utah locals: check out Alpine Loop or Big Cottonwood Canyon!

If you’re opting for a city look, take your fam downtown and take advantage of the unique architecture! For this look, go for a more elegant dress like the Sicily in Champagne, and dress your little in a fun yet classy piece like the Party Dress. Dress the boys in gray suits with oxford style shoes and you’ve got a timeless family photo! For our Utah locals: take a stroll in Salt Lake City and make sure to check out the Library, the County Building, and the Capitol Building!

The theme of the year has been enjoying time at home, and you can fully embrace that with your family photos! Gather the family on the couch or in the backyard, make sure you’ve got some good natural light, and let your photographer do the rest! For this look we recommend the lovely and comfy Madeline dresses for you and your mini, while the boys can keep things simple in jeans and neutral button ups.

If you want a unique and ethereal look - take a trip to the lake and have fun with it! You can get creative and photograph your family having a picnic, or you can keep things simple and casual. To get all the magical vibes we suggest going for the Midsummer Nights dress for mom and the Luna dress for the minis. The boys can go with some chinos, a button up, and a hat for a fun added detail. For our Utah locals: check out Daybreak Lake or Tibble Fork Reservoir!
