Last year I posted a blueprint for our families fall family photo shoot using polyvore.com as a resource to create a template. Well, I thought I’d try to make another template borrowing images of clothing that are similar to my families current wardrobe.
The only difference this year is that we plan on doing our own photos instead of hiring someone. Not sure how they will turn out, but I think it will be fun.
I decided to go for a blue and white palette contrasted with dark blues, browns and tans. I’m thinking I’ll make it more Christmasy (I made that word up) with some editing effects and font if possible, because the clothing itself isn’t super Christmasy. Not sure if I’ll wear a wrap for the photo or just hold Cailyn, but I’m going to leave that decision pending. My wrap is blue, not pink though ( I couldn’t find another image).
We ended up wearing a much different look for out photos last year because the photographer we hired wasn’t digging my blueprint. Her photos turned out very nice, but this year I’d like to follow my vision and wardrobe plan because they didn’t feel entirely like us. I want the photos to be “us” if you know what I’m saying, and doing things ourselves gives us that uninhibited freedom.
Once I figure out how we will doctor them up I’d love to share what we did (failure or not). There are a lot of awesome print companies that seem to sell beautiful photo prints for a bargain, so I might tap into that. Any suggestions are welcome!
Oh, and we plan on using them as cards for our families and friends.
Merry Christmas in advance!
