Recently, Colton had some 3 month portraits taken. I’ve only seen a few on the photographer’s camera so far, but I think the boy was having a cute day.

But Caroline is doing family photos for us in just a little while. I’m super, super excited. I don’t think I’ve told her how stoked I am for this (Caroline, I can hardly contain my excitement!), but I just might keel over thinking about the fun that will no doubt be had. And the pictures will be awesome!

Yes my kid is cute, and even though I’m not 100% happy with the stomach regions of my body, I don’t want to have 99 thousand pictures of my kid and no pictures of me. I want to capture our family; I want to remember not just what we looked like, but what our lives were like. Which is why I’m excited to have a casual family photo.

Only, in his portrait, Colton only wore a diaper. Now I have to choose outfits for three people. I’m fairly sure I want Colton to wear this plaid, western style onepiece:

He’s got a brown onesie underneath in this picture, but I’m thinking of having him wear a white one, if needed. The white one fits a little tighter and I think it will just look a little crisper. I don’t know if you can tell in the picture, but the plaid has a little maroon stripe running through it.

To play off of that, I’m thinking of wearing this top in maroon (sorry, no picture online), along with a pair of trouser cut jeans.

But then what will Hubby wear? He has maroon dress shirts, but I think that would be a bit too much maroon if I did wear maroon, and it’s also a little too dressy. He has a green polo, and I thought that would work, along with jeans and maybe his brown leather jacket.

If we aren’t into maroon, I could wear a gray t-shirt, purple cardigan, and purple/gray scarf. Or a green shirt and purple cardigan. Or a purple or green shirt with a gray, striped cardigan. Or I could wear a gray top with flower embellishment at the neckline. (This basically encompasses everything I own that fits. The jeans will be a stretch though.) Should I look for something else for me? Will what I have work?

What about Hubby? Is green no good? His only other knit polo is blue, yellow and gray striped. He has a dark green henley t-shirt, and an orange and white plaid, button down t-shirt (the plaid is very, very small, so it should read pretty neutral). Oh, and he also has an orange and gray striped long-sleeved polo.

So, to sum up, I’m pretty sure what I want Colton to wear, but am not sure about Hubby and me. HELP! Also, if you don’t think Colton’s outfit is the way to go, let me know. I am in need of any and all suggetions!
