I’m linking up today with Melissa at I Pick Pretty today to share what Henry and I wore to our family photos last weekend.
True story: we did not have any sort of family photo taken until Henry was almost 4 weeks old. It breaks my heart that we don’t have a photo of the three of us together at the hospital. I never thought about it while we were there and nobody offered to take one Because of this, I’ve been almost obsessive about getting as many photos of the three of us together as we can.
(I clearly need some practice with Polyvore)
We had family photos taken last Saturday (on perhaps the most perfect day Portland weather-wise of all time) and I spent a good deal of time deciding (panicking) over what we were going to wear. I ordered these red skinny jeans from Gap a couple weeks ago while placing an order for the majority of Henry’s fall wardrobe. (Hello Gap? My son is DARLING and is found in your clothing 75% of the time. Call us, please.) Anyway, I fell in love with them when they arrived and knew that I wanted to wear them in our photos. I picked up my blouse during my pre-Anniversary sale appointment at Nordstrom and liked it, but wasn’t sure what I’d wear it with. Lucky for me, it ended up working very well. As a backup, I also bought this blouse at Target (I’m having trouble deciding if it’s a keeper). In that same Gaporder was a wee gingham shirt for Henry along with the world’s cutest baby jeans and decided that it went well with my outfit without being too matchy-matchy. Also, he wore these teeny loafers which are just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Bill wore a dressy black polo-type shirt, dark jeans and black shoes. I think we all looked pretty darn cute.
I meant to take a photo of my outfit before we left for the purposes of this post but forgot. I did, however, snap this picture of my stoic boy at our post-session dinner. Such a little man.
Now, if you need me, I’ll be obsessively stalking my photographer’s website looking for a sneak peek of our photos.
