Our family photos are in! We hadn’t taken professional photos since this time last year, and had no pro photos of A at all, so it was definitely time to get it done. I usually print them out for all of the grandparents, and use them on our Christmas cards.
It was a ‘get out the door at the first crack of light’ kind of shoot, and the kids were grumpy, plus I didn’t think about my own hair or outfit hard enough, but I think they’ll be cute photos for our Christmas cards.
For our outfits, I was inspired by images like these from Fancy Ashley and Classy Girls Wear Pearls, respectively. Our actual outfit choices were more on the neutral side than the colourful, but I aimed for plaids and denim! I only wish I would have picked darker shoes for A, or tied tan in somewhere else.
If you’re going for a similar look I have a few ideas!

For the grownups, I found a few similar picks on Amazon. Matt’s outfit was easy — black and white plaid and jeans go with anything! I tied a chambray shirt over an existing black and white floral dress (I would’ve preferred a plaid or geometric pattern but I worked with what I had). I think a skater skirt would look good too!
There you have it. As usual, I try to buy things for special occasions that will still work with the rest of our wardrobes for every day use, and all of these outfit picks can definitely be reused.
