Family portraits are kind of tricky to me. I wanted to wear something relatively classic looking so the pictures wouldn't look too dated when we looked back at them years from now. I also wanted the whole family to look cohesive (yes, I've been watching too much Project Runway) so decided that everyone should wear blue. I took it to the next step and decided to play matchy-matchy with Baby E again by making us both pleated chevron skirts.

I know you can't see our faces in this pic, but this is one of my favorite candid shots from the session :)
And see that "glow" on my arms? It was a HOT day for photos.
I think it was Jean who mentioned that she trusts the camera much more than the mirror. So I pondered between 2 classic button-downs via photos. I'm glad I did! I preferred the light blue in the mirror, but the dark navy looked so much better in the photo due to the contrast. The pictures also told me to nix the necklace for being too busy.
(And if you're wondering, I have not yet fixed my ball of hair here since these were taken the same day as the black sheath post, but appreciate all your helpful tips!)
If interested, you can order these at my Etsy store.
Skirts are custom made to your waist measurement and length preference.
Baby / Toddler version also available by special request :)
P.S. Now that I'm back to work, blog posting may be a little erratic as well as general interaction. If you have a question or need anything, I'm usually the best at responding via Twitter (I know that's weird, but the limited characters works well for me) followed by email.
