After years of putting off a family photoshoot, we finally bit the bullet and did it. I’ve been wanting one for awhile now, especially since it’s so hard to get a family photo with all of us in it. It was hard enough with one kid, but with two kids and both our hands full… it was nearly impossible! Now that we are a family of four, I couldn’t think of a better time to do it.
I definitely wanted us to look coordinated and pulled together for the shoot without losing our sense of self, which meant our “look” still had to reflect who we were (comfy casual). When I think of Autumn, I immediately think of deep reds, burnt oranges, fiery yellows, and rich browns. I knew immediately that I wanted our look to center around a mustard yellow, so I tried to incorporate bits of yellow in each of our outfits. We already owned a yellow sweatervest for Jaren, I had some yellow corduroys, and I stumbled upon the perfect dress for Noelle. Even with these central pieces, I wasn’t sure I could pull off a coordinated look, so I created an inspiration board through Polyvore and went from there to fill in the gaps.
This was what I came up with:
This is where we ended up…
