When choosing an outfit for your tulip farm photo session, you want to strike a balance between complementing the vibrant flowers and feeling comfortable and confident. Here are some key things to consider:


  • Coordinate, don't clash: Opt for solid colors or simple patterns that won't compete with the tulips. Soft pastels, neutrals (white, cream, beige, navy), or muted jewel tones can look lovely.
  • Complementary colors: If you want to add a pop of color, choose something that complements the tulips. For example, wear yellow with purple tulips, blue with orange tulips, or green with red tulips.


  • Comfort is key: Remember, you'll likely be walking around and bending down. Opt for flowy dresses, skirts, or comfortable pants with breathable fabrics.
  • Layering for unpredictable weather: Spring weather can be fickle. Bring a light jacket or cardigan in case there's a chill.

Here are some specific outfit ideas:

For Adults:

  • Women: Flowy maxi dresses, sundresses, cute rompers, jeans with a blouse or sweater, skirts with a tucked-in t-shirt.
  • Men: Button-down shirts with rolled sleeves, chinos, khaki pants, comfortable sweaters.

For Kids:

  • Dresses: Floral prints (smaller patterns) or solid colors that complement the tulips.
  • Shirts and Pants: Light and airy fabrics like cotton or linen. Avoid busy patterns that clash with the flowers.
  • Accessories: Headbands, bows, hats can add a touch of cuteness for little ones.

Bonus Tips:

  • Footwear: Opt for flat shoes like sandals or sneakers that you can walk comfortably in on potentially uneven terrain. Consider bringing a change of shoes if the fields are a bit muddy after rain.
  • Avoid busy patterns: Large prints or logos will compete with the tulips in the photos.
  • Accessorize subtly: Keep jewelry and accessories minimal to avoid drawing attention away from the natural beauty of the flowers.
  • Coordinate outfits (optional): Complementary outfits that "go" together for families can create a cohesive look in the photos, but prioritize individual comfort over a forced "matchy-matchy" look.
  • Don't forget: leave smart watches, cell phones, wallets, hair ties, etc. in the car. These are all items that can be distracting in your photos.

Remember, the most important thing is to feel comfortable and confident! Choose an outfit that makes you feel great and allows you to relax and enjoy the experience.
