This week I had a chance to go shopping at Hobby Lobby. What a great place that is!! A total time sucker-upper, though. LOL I was surprised to see 6 aisles dedicated to Christmas decorations already. Wow – not even Halloween yet. I suppose it's inevitable, though. And for photographers, having the holiday decor out now is almost a necessity. Really! So of course I had to pick up a few new tree ornaments. Can never have too many, right? 🙂
After my trip there, I stopped by The Gap and Old Navy to see what they had available for holiday wear. I'm going to be doing my kids' holiday portraits in the next week or so and want to be sure I can find things that coordinate nicely. Of course, I have the added challenge of making sure I get something green for Christopher and something red for David. They are such sticklers for wearing their favorite colors. Ha ha ha Well, I'm pleased to report that I did find a lot of items that would work well. But now I have to go back with the boys just to be sure they will fit into the items I picked out.
And while I was there, I picked out a few items that I thought you might enjoy too! In keeping with the holiday theme, I decided to go with a very traditional color combination of red, black, white and gray. Notice how there are several different patterns here? That's totally okay!! They work well together because the colors are harmonious. So don't be afraid to try some patterns when getting dressed for your portrait session. It will create additional interest and make you look just that much better than you already do. 🙂
Now go back to your Halloween festivities and have a fun fall weekend. Cuz we still have LOTS of time left before we really need to be thinking about snow and Christmas, right? 🙂
