We just returned from a 2 week vacation visiting back home. We made our rounds visiting family & friends on the East Coast & loved every minute of it. I also knew this would be the last time we'd see some people until who knows when... we haven't started planning holidays around here yet, but the thought of staying home has crossed my mind. So, I knew vacation would be a good time to get some good shots of all of the cousins if we planned on using any of these
photo ops as presents later in the year.
It takes just a little coordination & some planning ahead, but it helps to make the best gifts for grans if you need to use them later. Prior to leaving for vacation, I just called my sister-in-law & my sister to see what we all had in our closets that would help with the clothes coordination. The pictures just look better when there is a common theme or color so that no major clashing is going on. So we decided on 2 different outfits & colors, packed it for vacation, & ended up with some fun shots of the kids!
So, if you can coordinate with siblings, cousins, or family ahead of time, it makes for a less stressful holiday season & one less picture you must take then.

And Photo Op #2
And the boys
And this one just sort of happened -- accidentally, all of the kids ended up in green. Seriously, after a while great minds just start to think alike.
