Picture Perfect Family: Another edition of What to Wear Wednesday and I like this one because of all the Gray. I am itching to paint a wall in my house gray. It is a popular color right now and I see it paired with yellow a lot. I guess the great thing about it is that you can put any bright pop of color and here I have a couple of bright pinks that stand out. Red for the holiday season would work just as well or even more of the plum color (pants).
It may be too late in the year for a family Christmas portrait to be made by most professional photographers. If you missed out on one this year you can still coordinate your colors and try to take your own Holiday card pictures. Minted is a newer card company that your friends may not know about if you are looking for the latest and greatest designs for a card. I have samples of their cards and they offer a thick card-stock and good quality products. Take a look at my children below. They are a tough crowd to get a decent picture from but I just go with it. I like a more candid picture included on my Christmas Cards anyway. If you can’t get the picture-perfect shot you are looking for, do something fun. Be real. Life isn’t picture perfect so show your kids like they are. For mine that means VERY silly. Think about what you enjoy seeing on Christmas Cards from other people.
I am a self proclaimed slacker blogger. I’m going to make a big push at the end of this year and have 12 days of blogging. I have lots of session shares and things I never got online and I also will share some favorite photography related products and gift ideas. Enjoy your last few days of November. My oldest turns 11 years old on Friday so it is a big week for us.
