Elle from Elle Sees hosted a link up yesterday all about sharing the story behind the pic. I didn't have a chance to share then, so I wanted to share today. I typically take my blog photos right when my 'photographer' (e.g. husband) comes home from work. That way we get what I wear each day and we don't have to do one big photo session with multiple outfits from the week (when we can!). Lately our daughter has been wanting to be like mommy. She wants to put 'lips' on in the morning, use conditioner and hair spray in her hair, and wants her photo taken. Claire will throw a fit if she is left out of the photos! So in these she is occupying my usual space in front of the arbor vitae and I had to take a spot further down on the driveway. You can even tell when I am calling to her or watching her in a few of the pictures!
On to the outfit! I've wanted to pair these pants with mint for a while. Sometimes I feel stuck with brightly colored bottoms and stick to neutrals and navy. By branching out I found a new favorite combo and a great opportunity to wear my new wrap bracelet from my brother and his fiance. I am blessed to have a fabulous sister-in-law and future sister-in-law!

  10. Love the colors here. My hubby takes my outfit shots while the kids are waiting in the car (near by) or if at a place with a grocery store the kids wait in a cart, sometimes they are running around or being "watched" by family haha! Claire sounds too cute!

  20. The mint and pink is such a nice colour combination! I'll have to give this a try one day! :) Thanks for the inspiration :)

    I'm finding with a toddler who loves to run that taking blog photos gets harder! I usually take a quick picture in the morning before I head out the door, so if we are going somewhere exciting for him, he's all energetic and wound up and always running in and out of the frame. Makes for some hilarious outtake photos haha!
