Family Photos 2018
Main Colors: Maroon and Dark Gray
Accent Colors: Rose, Turquoise, Light Gray, Denim
We haven’t taken family photos in FIVE years! The last time we went my son Alex literally stepped his whole leg into a pond. We had to edit his leg out of most of the photos. Needless to say, it was not fun, LOL. I finally got the courage to try again this year and I am glad I did. The kids are older now so it was much easier!
However, I definitely learned a few things to keep in mind for next time. I didn’t have my boys try on their outfits first, and when Alex put that plaid shirt on it was HUGE! He normally wears a large but this large was sooooo big.
With no time to spare, we loaded up the car and raced to Kohls. I grabbed the same shirt in a medium, and on the way out ran through the girls section and found Malori’s headpiece.
I hadn’t been able to find anything in those colors, and just like that the perfect headband was right there. While Alex’s shirt did fit better, it was still too big, and that’s why he tucked it in.
Nothing like last minute shopping!! Next time I will make sure we ALL do a dress rehearsal before picture day.
I am so glad it worked out. I love these pictures! It’s definitely worth the stress, LOL.
Drew was so mad he had to hold Malori’s hand, LOL! It looks like his eyes are closed but they are open, he’s a squinter like his Mom.
Their personalities really show here in their poses!
I love these colors together!
