1. Go with something in the same color zone. This doesnt mean that everything has to be red or green, but coordinate between warm or cool hues. For example, this year the boys went with a cool red and navy buffalo plaid, navy tweed ties and coorderory navy pants. Since cool colors/tones are NOT in my color wheel, and I couldnt pull off a true red if my life depended on it..... I went with a neutral... BLACK... For those who know my style well... Black is my everything... and this holiday was no different... but I added a little twist..... Lace, which brings me to my next suggestion.
5. Picking the right photographer... This goes with the last one really well. My photographer is my best friend. She knows me like a sister and knows what I love. With that being said, she knows Im a slightly controlling- most photographers would probably dislike my micromanaging, but again... picking the right photographer with the right creative approach is a must!!! Pictures are worth a thousand words, and I need to love the photographers work and the photographer as a person.... she is working with my babies after all!
This is how we get the perfect shot... See how they turned out.... I couldn't be happier...... I saved the Christmas card photo a secret- soon to come!!!!!
