Spring is arriving! Yesterday I sat outside almost the entire day while my kids played and it was just beautiful! Watching Kingston discover the outside on his own is just adorable. Last year he wasn’t walking yet and this year he just has the freedom to wander and do as he likes. Needless to say- our bathtub was full of dirt after those three were washed up for bed. I think it’s going to be a fun summer for all of us! I’m already planning out our family session for September- I can’t wait! I’ve got the inspiration and I know the photographer is going to do an amazing job- so, so excited!
If you’re planning on a family session this year, please contact me as soon as possible! As previously mentioned, I’m booking up quickly…and I’d love to be able to accommodate everybody. Here’s some lovely spring like wardrobe inspiration. I love Mom’s shoes and necklace and the color combo of navy and fresh corals and greens! I honestly believe a complimentary wardrobe is SO important to your images, and encourage you to look through the previous What to Wears as well. Also, browse magazines and take a look at the advertisements- how are the models dressed? Usually there are a few patterns, a limited color palette, and lots of textures. And with the exception of Tide ads, the model family usually does not wear matching khaki pants and polo shirts… haha
From personal experience, I can say that putting together outfits for a group of people is NOT easy. With our little family of five, there are so many things to consider- coloring, comfort, style and co-ordination without being too matchy. It takes a special talent to put together perfect combinations of clothing that makes everyone look and feel good! If that talent is not yours (it’s definitely not mine!) you can cheat by looking through some of these inspiration boards…visual inspiration is my only hope when trying to plan our family’s outfits for a session.
