WW: Fall Picture Outfits

Well, it's that time of year again and we're getting excited about our annual fall family pictures coming up this weekend with Stephanie Glover Photography!

This is a tradition that I just adore, mostly because it's amazing to see just how much our family can change with each passing year. I posted a Through the Years post {what seemed like yesterday but was actually last fall} and with the addition of our session in 2012... {aww, itty bitty Reid at just 2 months old!}

... you can see just how much we've grown.  Andplusalso? It's crazy to think that we're adding yet another baby to the mix soon!  {Turning this year's family session into a maternity session as well. EEEKKK!}

So, of course, before any photo session, I somewhat obsess over colors/themes/ideas of what everyone will wear.  I try to go with a different "pop" color each year and, while I originally was going to go with a burnt orange {because, let's be honest, who doesn't love burnt orange in the fall? #guilty}  I actually found a sweater that I fell in love with for Bob in Target and never looked back. Yep... I changed our whole theme to match this one sweater. 

So this year's color scheme? Purple and grey.  And I'm so excited about it.

Here's what it will look like altogether...
I can't even with those boots for Brynn. Love.  And the puffer vest for Reid?  Come on. I was also SO EXCITED to find PURPLE in the BOYS aisle for Carter and Bob.  #winning #iknowimexcited #okayillstopwiththehashtags

Anyway, here's a link to my board on Polyvore so you can see where all the items were purchased.  The only items that are different from the board linked are my purple cardi/sweater and Brynn's purple scarf {which is from Etsy}.  The sweater I'm wearing is actually from Banana Republic, but I got it over a year ago so it's no longer online.  However, the Target sweater I linked on Polyvore is similar in color/style so you get the idea and it will totally work if you want to go with the same/a similar theme.

So please send us lots of luck {omg, pictures with 3 kids is exhausting} and good weather for Sunday, thankyouverymuch.  I know Steph will do an amazing job and I can't wait to share the results with you!

Also, since I've been totally slacking here lately... let's do a linky.

LOVE the outfits! We just had ours done on Sunday, and I'm still obsessing over them. I just love the way they turned out…I thought going with 4 little people would be a hot mess, but the pics are just gorgeous (wait, are you allowed to say that about your own family pics? oh well.) Good luck! I'm sure yours will look beautiful as usual! And? Brynns boots? OMG. ~Jenn

I absolutely love the outfits you picked out! As a photographer, apparently I am the last one to get family pictures done. I think I need to pull my family out to the farm nearby again and set up the tripod. lol

Love the outfits!

We went with purple, grey, and blue for our family photos this past fall.

I'm (semi) local to you, where is that bridge located? It's absolutely gorgeous!

@Jennifer- Our pictures last year were taken at Brandywine Park in Wilmington, DE. We had out engagement pictures taken there as well as our maternity pictures with Brynn... I love it! It's down the street from Brandywine Zoo (in Trolley Square, behind the shopping center).

I wanted to do purple/grey for our pictures this year. I have a really cute pair of purple boots (that I yet to be able to unearth from the depths of my closet) that was the inspiration for my color choice.

Great minds think alike!

Great choices! We're also doing our family fall shots on Sunday and SAME colour scheme! Good luck with the kids, I'm sure they're going to do great!
