What I Wore Wednesday: Family Photos

As I mentioned last week our first attempt at family photos was thwarted when our photographer had her camera stolen. Luckily my sister works with a lot of photographers since she's an event and wedding planner and we were able to schedule another session.  We couldn't get everyone we had together for my Grandma's party but we were able to get photos taken with my sister and her husband by the crazy talented Tine Hoffman of TM Photography.

It was a gorgeous day up in Eden Park and despite Blondie Boy not always being the most cooperative subject we got some amazing photos.








I wore a purple vest I got at the Gap outlet and a Mossimo flannel shirt from Target. Blondie Boy's sweater is from Target and his pirate t-shirt from the J. Crew outlet. I freaking love American outlets and Target. We have outlets in the UK but they really don't even come close to comparing to the ones back home.

I'm so grateful we were able to get some photos for my Grandma and for ourselves. I love that photo of my sister and her husband and the ones of Blondie Boy in playing in the water fountain with NBH are just such fun! I'm really grateful we were able to get them done--how often do you get family photos done?

It is great to have proper family photos; I think it is much more affordable/mainstream in the US than the UK.

I wish we could do more photo shoots as a family. I've always wanted to have photo taken in the studio but I'm just waiting until my little one is behave enough to stay put for picture taking. :) The pic of your son running is really priceless....he really looks like he's having fun. Great family portraits. :)

Thanks Susan :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! I think so too but I'm biased :)

Melaina25 said...

It was a beautiful day for photos; he was running right by this duck pond and I swear to all that is good I thought he was going to run INTO the pond but the photographer kept having him do it over and over!

Melaina25 said...

I've only ever had outdoor family photos---I think I'm spoiled :)

Melaina25 said...

If you have a good photographer it won't matter I promise! Blondie Boy was acting up 89% of the time :)
