We splurged to get family photos this year since it was Ocoee's first year celebration. The photographer, Sugar Six, is awesome and has taken my maternity and Ocoee's newborn photos.
We had to reschedule a few times due to crummy weather and the trees were a bit past their prime, with lots of the leaves being blown away but it turned out pretty great. The best part was we were outdoors and since it was a mini session, it only lasted 30 minutes.
No I am not the type of mother who lets her one year old run around in the grass without shoes.....I am just the type whose daughter is really good and shucking shoes off! She didn't mind the chilly ground on her toes at all.
Ocoee is wearing a dress from jcrew and leggings from target in a thick cable knit.
I love the two above. I wanted our outfits and poses to look like us, casual and laid back. The colors are traditional and look nice against the fall colors. I wanted to look coordinated but not too matchy-matchy, and not overly trendy since that will date the photos quicker.
Now we can be really cheesy and send xmas photos with our family picture on it......because people like pictures better than some Hallmark moment.
