This is probably one of the hardest things for a mom. You would think it would be something like balancing work, home, family, cooking, cleaning etc...but NO, it's planning your whole family's wardrobe for pictures! I stress out over this EVERY time! I didn't want everyone wearing the same thing and color as we have in past years, but wanted to make sure we looked cohesive. I was pretty happy how it worked out. Oh and it helps to have an AMAZING photographer, which we do.

I also really wanted to make sure the older kids were dressed appropriately for their "pre-teen" age and not look too babyish.

Of course R's toddler outfit had to be stylish too!

Hubby and I jeans by American Eagle, my top Forever 21, his plaid shirt Daniel Cremieux @ Dillards
I liked R's cardigan open..but being 3 he kept wanting to take it off so it ended buttoned up later.
Make sure you grab quick individual shots while you're there!
I also did these fun matchups from last year's pics to see how much everyone has grown!
