It’s that time of year for family photos and holiday preparation. I know it’s only October but there are only nine weeks left until Christmas, crazy to think about that! As a lady on-the-go, I start planning things this month so that I don’t wait until the last minute. This year I wanted to get our family photos done in advance so that we could check that off the list. Easier said than done for sure, especially for us mamas! I am currently tending to a sick toddler so things have been moved around this week already.
I think it’s important to capture our family at least once a year so we can look back and remember that year in photos, a picture is truly worth a thousand words. I was thrilled to work with Houston Family Photographer Anel from Tender Nest Portraits again (our previous shoot photos here). She has a great eye, is a mom herself, and she is quick to capture beautiful shots.
This year I wanted to change up our typical holiday photo from green/red color scheme to add a little more color. It was a toss-up between purple and wine, my two favorite fall colors. Purple won because we are a Longhorn family and wine is too close to Aggie maroon, LOL.
Making an aesthetically pleasing photo without using green and red can be easier than you think. I would suggest you still stick to a fall or winter color but you can change it up. Pick one color and you can tie in different shades of that to make a cohesive look. As you can see my hubby is in a purple checked button up, my little one has a purple vest with a plaid skirt that also has purple, and I have on a vest that has the purple in the print. Holiday photos don’t have to be so traditional, try a different color this year!
