Believe it or not, it’s that time again – time to think about those family photos for your holiday cards. Yes, it feels like summer just flew by us, but before we can blink, it’ll be time to deck the halls. If you’re a constant procrastinator like me, you always miss the amazing Black Friday deals on holiday cards because your cards are not ready. This year, I’m determined to not let it happen again (narrator: she, in fact, did let it happen again).
Planning outfits for the family is always the trickiest part of the equation for me. You want everyone to look put together and coordinated with just the right amount of trends and accessories, but not totally matchy-matchy. For someone who leans on the side of fashionably-challenged, this is a true predicament. Factor in the time it actually takes to gather all of the pieces, keep an eye on sales, and then, get everyone dressed on the same day at the same time – enter: complete overwhelm. You might as well be talking about training for a marathon.
Well, we’re making it easy on you this year. We put together coordinated-but-not-matchy separates to make simple, aesthetically-pleasing outfits for the whole family that will photograph beautifully. Not only can you choose from one of six themes (or mix and match as you please), but our graphics let you see all the outfits together so you know exactly how it’ll look on the big day. Take our word for it, all the guesswork is done.
All that’s left for you to do is make sure the fam is smile-ready on photo day. My trick? Bring along a non-messy bribe, ahem, treat – my little ones will smile on cue for mini gummy bears any day of the week. Hey, you do what you have to, right?
