Pinterest Love: Purple Color Story

I have been in purple/lavender mood lately.  I don’t know if I am because I have been seeing it out when I shop or I was drawn to it first.  Either way, purple is a color that looks good on me and I love purple as a Fall color.  You can see all my purple pins here.

I wanted to do a purple color story for our family portraits with Robin Adams Photography coming up soon.  I got this dress for Penelope:

If you are Facebook with me, you know that she has some ridiculously cute brown boots that are going to be perfect with this dress.

I am going to wear either a purple dress and brown boots, but that might be too matchy-matchy, or a purple sweater and jean skirt with brown boots.  What do you think?

I might even do my nails a purple color.  Or is that too much purple?

I have no idea what Peter will wear, maybe jeans and a brown shirt?

I love photography, and love having our portraits done, but oh, the stress it puts on me, since I am recovering perfectionist.  I want to get everything perfect and to live up to the vision I have in my head, of how I want the images to feel and turn out.  This time we are going to take our pictures at Railroad Square, an urban/funky/artsy part of town that should make for a really great background.  Can’t wait!

If you need any help picking out a color theme for your portraits, I found this on pinterest and it seems pretty helpful.

    @Anonymous…I don't have too much time on my hands, but I do really enjoying planning things down the detail! It is stressful, but I do enjoy it, maybe I even enjoy the stress of it?
