Family Photos?!?!?!


sneak peek image.png

My husband and I have been married for six and a half years….this is the FIRST time we’ve taken a picture together that was not just a quick snap or a selfie. I have taken family pictures for soooo many other people in those six and a half years, but never for us. What changed? I am now armed with a remote and “need to photograph those clothes I made you.” Watch out Hubby! Times, they are a changing.

Just kidding, mostly. He willingly took these (this one, trouble-ridden photo in which every battery died, my remote was on the fritz, and I managed to LEAVE MY SUNGLASSES ON!) and models because he is amazing.


Needless to say, I need to go out and take more, but hubby works nights and so it ended up just being the kiddos and me. Go figure, we had good lighting, the batteries were all working well, no glitches, and I even remembered to take my sunglasses off. MY two small tornadoes even decided to cooperate and were over-the-top adorable (couldn’t have been that ice cream and painting I promised them!) for the second shoot.

Now, you KNOW I needed to make all of our outfits for these pictures. What could be better than snarky, cute Christmas shirts and cozy joggers for the whole family?! Our pants are all the amazing new joggers from Patterns for Pirates and the patterns can be found here.

The shirts are also Patterns for Pirates, the Men’s Henley and Women’s Henley as well as the Jolly Roger Raglan.

The killer plaid came from Wondergound Fabrics, the oh-so-cozy moose and bear print is from Vintage Lace, and the solids are from all over the place including Purple Seamstress, Knitpop, andย Allilane in Abbyville.

When these joggers were still in testing and the amazing Judy over at Patterns for Pirates allowed me to help test the pattern, my husband did even more modeling for me with my sweet Adeline. See if you can tell how much she loves her daddy. ๐Ÿ˜›

They melt my heart juuuuuuust a tiny bit. Okay, so I’m a puddle, whatever.

These are my people. We thrive on each other and love being goofy together. And now there is even evidence of all of that! Yay!

Sew..what should you wear? Wear what you love, what makes you happy, what you enjoy, and what is comfortable!

    • Aww! Thank you!!! I was so excited to get family pictures and it was nearly a miracle my kiddos decided to be all lovey. I usually just photograph them while they’re running around ๐Ÿ˜›

    • I’m excited for Christmas because of these outfits! We are going to my in-laws’ house on Christmas eve, so we’re going to wear them and have a big PJ party, then we don’t have to change when the kids fall asleep on the way home ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I always love everything you make, these are over the top! Your whole family are cute as a button! They sure put a big smile on my face today. Thanks for sharing your creativity and family with us.

  2. Can I tell you I love you and have it not be creepy??? ๐Ÿ™‚ Gorgeous pics and the clothes turned out awesome as usual ma’am! Where did you get or how did you make your vinyl lettering? I’m needing your ‘I can get you on the naughty list’! Thanks KS for sharing a great peek at the joggers, I’ve been debating but now I’ve got to get them!

    • Not creepy at all! <3 Thank you!!! For the vinyl, I found a graphic online and traced it. I couldn't find it as a cut file at all :/ I'm excited for you to make the joggers! They are supremely comfy!
