Family Photo Shoot, Part 1

We were long overdo for family photos.  Of all the beautiful places in the world, no location holds as much meaning for us as Irvine Park.  It's where Steve and I officially started our lives together 7 years ago.  The kids pugs are full-grown now, and in the prime of their cuteness, so the timing was perfect.

We enlisted our talented photographer friend Mari Schumann and she did a great job.  She was so patient with the dogs and went along with all our silly ideas.  There are a few pictures Steve took before the shoot mixed in here as well.

It wasn't until the last second that we decided what to wear.  I didn't really want to buy anything new, but did want to compliment our antique surroundings.  I found this teal necklace on clearance at Anthro ($6!) and that settled it.  Steve played along by picking coordinating colors and a vintage tie.  We did a casual set too, which I'll post later this week.

Necklace: Anthropologie
Dress: Vintage, thrifted via Valu Thrift
Shoes: Oh Deer!
