How to make your family photos feel like you / Oh Joy!

I love family holiday cards. I love that it's the one time of the year that we focus on getting a professional photo of our little family, get dressed up, and make it a special day for all of us. Since I know how stressful it can be to plan for holiday photos, for the past few years I've partnered with Artifact Uprising to share some tips that I hope are helpful for you...like How to Choose an Outfit and How to Choose a Location for family photos.

This year, more than ever, I wanted my holiday card to feel like a reflection of us. We had ups and downs with my husband's health and became a stronger family because of it. My husband and I really made a bigger effort to focus on family and make time for our kids even with our crazy work schedules. And we're ending the year on a sweet note, for sure, with everyone in good health and good spirits! So, where better to go capture those memories to reflect on our year than in Downtown Los Angeles and at the Museum of Ice Cream!

Here are my five tips for getting your holiday family photos to feel like you...

currently obsessed with: pink and mustard...17 Nov 2017

Oh Joy outfit

Whenever fall comes around, I think about how my usual love of bright colors often feels a bit intense during the fall. I have been super obsessed with mustard lately (like this coat) and now this comfy, yet chic, shirt and pants. As a way to bring my love of color into this rich fall tone, I've added big pops of pink. Here are two versions of pink and mustard with a pale pink jacket and a bright magenta coat...

Oh Joy outfit

When you have a cropped pant, offset that with a top, jacket, or coat that goes to the normal length and full-sleeve, so the cropping is only focused on one piece not multiple. Also, by adding a neutral shoe, the other saturated colors have a chance to shine!

A Thanksgiving Gourd-a-copia / Oh Joy!

It's hard to believe Thanksgiving is exactly ONE WEEK from today! No matter how far along you are in your holiday prepping and planning, this DIY is a super fun update on the cornucopia that you can easily make before the big day. We're calling it the gourd-a-copia! (Who remembers our cone-a-copia from a few years back?!) Here's how to make it, plus, some inspiration for a non-traditional Thanksgiving table...
