Wardrobe Ideas for Outdoor Portraits

This time of year is perfect for an outdoor family portrait session. Regardless of the location you want, be it a mountain field or a local park or garden, there are lots of wardrobe options to consider. Here are a few of our favorite looks for this season.

First, consider the spring color palette this year. Most designers favor any combination of these shades in their spring lines.

You can create a stylish look with any one of these colors, simply paired with white or other neutrals, such as the Starfish or Driftwood shades. Alternately, these colors can work well together to create a more playful or dramatic look.

Sodalite Blue would pair well with Sweet Lilac, Solar Power or Margarita.

Some of the stronger hues like Bellflower, Cabaret and Tangerine Tango will make great accent colors for accessories, shoes and jewelry.

Here are some fun spring looks from Gap:

You can create a variety of looks with these color ideas, from casual to sophisticated, splashy to subdued. If you use a strong color, be sure to balance it out with plenty of white or neutral pieces as well. Above all, be sure to let each family member’s personality shine through.


A walk in the backyard…

A walk in the back yard in early spring always brings with it the opportunity to snap off a few photos. Here is one from yesterday evening.  It sure is nice to have a beautiful girl right at my fingertips.


17th Annual Hospice Fun Walk and Run

Today couldn’t have been a prettier day to walk. My sister, Lynn, and I started from the Governmental Center with about 3,000 other runners and walkers. We were walkers… 🙂 After a trip through the old part of Leonardtown, around Tudor Hall and back, we had done our 3.1 miles, or 5K. Our time was 1 hour 32 seconds. Not my personal best walking, but walking none the less. I’m thankful for the ability to walk when so many others are not. After finishing the race we stopped and said hello to Todd Morgan, St. Mary’s County Commissioner. His wife was in a horrible car accident last summer and suffered a severe brain injury. She is still hospitalized. He commented that next year he hopes to see her walking in the 5k. It brings things into perspective and I really hope to see her there too.
