Fall Family Photo Shoot

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Hey guys!  If you follow me on Pinterest then you know that I have been scouring the web for outfits for our upcoming Fall Photo shoot with Shannon Bradley.  Sometimes I wish that I was the type that could put our whole family in jeans and a white shirt...but I am not.  I agonize over our outfits-design boards, laying them out on the floor, test shots, etc.  It is a little ridiculous.  Ok, it's a lot ridiculous.  But all of the prep work means that I LOVE our photos when they are done.  

I also make sure that our outfits coordinate with our living room.  I know, I know, more ridiculousness. But I made the mistake before of getting pictures taken in grey and black and hated how the photos looked in our blue and brown living room.  

Check back tomorrow for the Outfit Design Board.

Red White and Blue Boys bedroom inspiration

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Hey guys!  It's really starting to feel like Fall around here which means it's time for football, Pumpkin Spice Lattes and jambalaya!

My oldest, who is 5, has asked me to decorate his room.  Clearly we watch a lot of HGTV around here.  I love a red, white and blue boys bedroom and that's how Nick's bedroom was decorated as a kid too so it has special meaning.  

We already had a full size upholstered headboard for M's bed and just needed to recover it with different fabric.  We went on a quick field trip to the new Premier Fabric store in Raleigh and scored this navy link fabric.

Linked Blue White

Premier Prints had an awesome selection!  It was very tough to decide.  


I had completed the design boards below too and used these to let the Mason & Lucas decide what they like best.  They love being involved in the process.  I have ordered vinyl wall decals for each of them too.

One headboard is done! One to go!  Then we need to build cornice boards.  I am sure we will head back to Premier Fabrics in Raleigh.
