I hate picking clothing for photos. I mull it over, “what do we have that goes together?” “I want to be bright but not busy.” “I don’t want to have anything too trendy that we will all look at in 15 years and laugh so hard we cry.”
But, I do want our pictures to be bright since it may be cloudy and will definitely be soggy the day of our pictures since it has rained all week here. (All my Texan friends can express their jealousy now.) I’m thinking about adding some colorful flowers from my flowerbeds in our pictures but I’m no floral designer. I have daffodils and hyacinth up and blooming right now and I thought that would be fun to have a little spring bouquet. Or is that weird?
I have also been thinking about adding in some cute little shoes to the shoot to represent the baby. But really it is SO hard to find a cute pair of unisex baby shoes! We wont know what we are having until the beginning of May. Any ideas of what we could do to represent baby? Perhaps I am a little concerned about looking fat rather than pregnant… and having a very visual reminder of a baby in my belly will help for future reference. Maybe? Am I crazy?!?
I have 2 days to pick clothing! Grey is really in right now, so I was thinking about doing grey + a bright color for each person. Like my husband would be in grey and blue, me in grey and green, #1 in grey and red, #2 in grey and yellow. Is that crazy? What do you think? Help me!
