Last year we had so much fun with an impromptu fall photo session with Jake. Looking back he was SO small! How does one year change things so much?! He is now a toddler running around with blond hair! Regardless I learned a few things from this day.
1) While it’s nice to focus on my own outfit, I also need to coordinate his. I’m not loving his shirt and jeans combo. Luckily he’s cute enough to cover it.
2) Don’t go to the pumpkin patch at the end of the month and expect hundreds of pumpkins. Notice how it’s more like a few scattered pumpkins and not the mountain we all dream of? That’s because we were the last ones there!
3) Enlist a friend’s family to come along so you can switch off taking family shots. It’s hard getting all of you in the shot, why not guarantee it?!
4) And finally don’t be afraid to breathe. We had way more fun goofing off in this corn field away from the crowd and it truly shows in the photos!
Since we’re headed to the patch this weekend, I’ve worked to nail down Jake’s look so there is no day of scramble. I want us to all feel comfortable and casual since we have holiday photos coming up. I’m loving this chambray shirt, skinny jeans and boots for Jake. I’m also loving this J. Crew sweater for me!
