This is totally frivolous...I am just having trouble deciding, and I feel like my matching skills are not great.

We are having our family portrait taken today, and I can't decide how to dress DD. DH is wearing a navy blazer, a lighter blue dress shirt, and khaki pants. I am wearing a dusty rose lightweight sweater and brown slacks. Can't decide if I should put DD in an all-pink dress that has some light staining around the collar (don't know if it would show), a green dress that has multiple colors in it, or a bright pink sweater and slacks with lime green accents. The pink slacks outfit is cutest on her to wear around, but I'm just not sure about in a portrait.
I don't want us to look matchy-matchy, FWIW, I just want us to look like we all belong in the same picture.
Thanks!

Here are pictures to help, but they are all from October, so you just have to imagine that they all fit her better now.

I voted for the pants and sweater but after looking at the pictures I think the green dress. It has both blue and pink so I think it would sort of draw your three outfits together.

The pink dress is cute, but pale colors don't work as well as bright ones in photos. I like the green dress the best.

The sweater and pants outfit is cute, but IMO dresses look better in formal portraits. So, in order of preference, I'd select (1) green dress (2) Hanna dress and (3) sweater and pants outfit.

I think she is so adorable and would look gorgeous in anything, but I like the green dress best. Have fun!

The green dress is really cute, I say go with that.
She's way too cute anway, so whatever she wears will only make her cuter!

The green dress is adorable and more formal picture looking than the pink pants (although that outfit is adorable too...).

I just love the green dress!

Awwwww...thanks guys! I took your advice. She wore the green dress and the portraits look good. Can't wait to pick them up in a few weeks!
