Our Easter was a busy one, but we managed to squeeze in some family photos between church and a birthday party. We had a bit of a time crunch, but once I found this black background, set up the camera on the tripod and clicked, clicked, clicked…15 minutes and 100+ photos later, I’m kind of in love with how they turned out. It was SO hard to choose my favorites (I make no apologies for the gratuitous amount of images in this post), so you get to see a bunch.
As you can see, we all wore black/white/navy, and though I didn’t originally plan on that, I’m smitten with the color scheme here. I found my dress the day before Easter at Forever 21 (better late than never) – I had tried on about 10 different dresses and wasn’t finding anything spectacular, so I decided to give up and wear something that I already had. On the way out, I saw this dress had just been put out on the clearance rack – it was missing a button, but had the missing one attached to the tag – uhhh yeah, $12 off for a missing button? I’ll take it! It was one of those “meant to be” moments – the dress fit all of my criteria – it was cheap, fits perfectly, it’s lined, not solid black (my usual go-to), back cutout(yes!), and is flattering from every angle. It was a fun dress to wear and honestly I felt spectacular in it. The kid’s clothes I got on clearance as well, including some black ballet flats for the girls from H&M for $1.50/pair. I love thrifty fashion and new family photos.
