A Soft and Whimsical Dress from Morning Lavender for Mom

Morning Lavender offers a range of delightful, soft dresses that would be ideal for moms to wear. These dresses create a sense of whimsy and offer plenty of movement to capture during the shoot. I love wearing a long dress in the summer, as when you play with your kids, the movement really captures a sense of fun and lightness in the photos.

Baltic Born Dresses for Mom

Baltic Born is the perfect site for moms to pick out a dress for any occasion. One thing I love about this site is that they embrace every stage of a woman’s life, offering dresses that are bump-friendly or ideal for more formal occasions. Their range of midi and maxi dresses are some of the best summer dresses for your family photography session, and you’ll find something to suit everyone’s personal taste on their site.

Joyfolie Dresses for Mom and Daughter

Take a look at the range of gorgeous princess-style dresses on the Joyfolie site when you are looking for inspiration for the best summer dresses for your family photography session. A lot of their dresses have a boho vibe, which is ideal for a photo shoot at this time of the year. They have dresses to suit all ages, so it’s the ideal one-stop-shop for all of the girls in your family.

Nest and Nurture Dresses for Your Daughter

Younger girls will love getting dressed up in one of the many Nest and Nurture vintage-style dresses. This site has some beautiful outfits for girls of all ages as well as a range of accessories to go with them. They offer classic and simple designs that won’t detract too much from your child’s personality during the photo session.

Tate & Adele Dresses for Daughters

Another great store that I love for older girls is Tate & Adele. They also offer vintage-style dresses, which are handcrafted in small batches for a unique addition to your photo shoot. The site stocks sizes for newborns through to adults, and you’ll find no trouble finding an option to suit your daughter’s personality. We love the variety of materials used on the site, many of which include neutral colours with interesting patterns that are ideal for an outdoor photo session.

All of these best summer dresses for your family photography session would be ideal for your summer photo shoot. I recommend always making sure you are comfortable in whatever you choose to wear, as many shoots at this time of the year take advantage of the great weather to explore the outdoors. You’ll find that you get some fantastic shots in dresses from any of these stores, which will help to bring out your family’s personality.
