What to wear for family pictures:
There is no set rule here...
I think if everyone is coordinating with colors it’s okay for someone to wear prints if someone else is wearing a solid as long as all the colors coordinate.
If you can pick a three color scheme that usually works really well. Try to avoid plain white shirts if you have fair skin and hair because you will look washed out.
Ultimately, if you feel good in what you are wearing you will look good in your pictures.
