Every year I put a lot of effort into our family photos. I can’t lie, I love them. I love everything about them. From planning the outfits to spending hours deciding on which photo will make our annual Christmas card. Unfortunately, I am the only one in my family that actually likes participating in said family photos–lol!
This year I put together (what I thought was) a really chic combination of fall outfits. I’ll share those here below. I started with my daughter to see what she thought, and she immediately, without hesitation, nixed my whole vision. From there, I let her scroll online to find something that would work for her, and then I built the rest of the outfits from there.
My son is super sporty and wears a Kansas City Chiefs jersey to school most days. I found this great Nike jersey, the colors of which matched Brooklyn’s dress. My husband loves Travis Matthews gear, so I found a top that I knew he would wear beyond family picture day. Lastly, I had to have this red jumpsuit from Anthropologie to give a little pop of holiday color to our look.
Oh, and did I mention I also let the kids talk me into bringing our dogs to family pictures this year?!? It was complete chaos, but the photos turned out great.
If you are local to Kansas City, Monica Erdmann from MEPhotography shoots our family photos each year, and I cannot say enough great things about her. She has the patience of a saint and a true gifting for getting kids to smile in photos.
