The Desert Scene Family Photo Shoot

One evening a couple of months ago after the kiddos went to bed I started surfing the net. I was being just a bit nosey/snooping (as I can be sometimes) and happened upon Elyse and Clint's blog. A couple that attend the same church as me and my family. I was in love with the stunning background and eclectic/hippie style of clothing they were wearing. Not to mention this family happens to be easy on the eyes.

It occurred to me that in a couple of months my famiy and me were going to be out West in Utah and Wyoming (where husband is from).  (I believe this picture was taken somewhere in Utah.)  And that we could do a similiar photo shoot out in the desert somewhere.  Sort of with that hippie/desert feel.  I've set about getting clothes together that I'd like everyone to wear.  Here are my picks:

London who is 2 1/2 years old is going to wear this adorable dress that my mom made a while back.  Regan has this hippie vest and blouse paired with a skirt that my mom is currently making for her.  I've got this precious vintage dress (to the right) that someone gave to my mom, that she passed onto me that I will wear.  Duane will be wearing a light blue polo shirt.

Soooo adorable.

I've had this child's vintage squash blossom necklace that my mom had when she was a child.  I wear it at least a couple of times a week as a choker.  I was going to wear it with the dress.

I have to mention that we coordinated the trip to be out there the same time that my parent's (who live in Florida) will be vacationing in the same area so my mom is going to take the pics.  She's pretty good at taking pictures and definitely has an artists eye so I'm hoping she'll be able to capture us at our best.

We will be leaving in one week (July 16).  Stay tuned for family pics!


  1. yay! I can't wait to see the pictures. It's going to be fantastic. Good idea---or at least good job picking up on the idea from someone else. :) Can not wait to see how the pictures turn out.

  2. love that dress you're going to wear! it's to die for!
