It’s that time of year when photoshoots are in full effect and I really wanted to do one of the kids at a tree farm this year. The boys were extra excited because they had no idea what a tree farm is (our Christmas tree is artificial)! Ha! We explained to them that we would be going to a local farm and they grew chickens, goats and trees! We bundled them all up to pick out a tree to donate to a family who didn’t have one and they LOVED the entire experience. Also – I got a gorgeous wreath so I’m pretty pumped too 🙂
In the fall, we shared our love of Abercrombie Kids clothing and let the boys direct a ‘back-to-school’ themed photoshoot. That was such a fun way to take photos of the boys that we decided to do it all over again – this time with them telling me how to capture them. Guys…if you have done this yet….allowed your kids to direct a photo session…you are seriously missing out! Kids have such great ideas!
Plus, we bundled them up in the cutest outerwear so it helped tremendously in making all the photos look frame-worthy!
Jeremy and I both love our Abercrombie coats so when we heard they have kid ones, we were SOLD. And they’re currently having a HUGE SALE with 30% Off Select Styles Plus Take An Extra 20% Off Entire Purchase until 12/10!”
Will has recently learned to wink and he cracks up laughing every time. Also I want his “Be the person your dog thinks you are” shirt in my size 🙂
We picked out the A&F kids ultimate parka for him in navy and he sized up to a 9-10! I was in complete denial. How could my baby be this big!?
Also Bear made his way into the photos for a bit (bad haircut and all) and Will asked if he could get one with “my dog and my dog shirt” 🙂
The parka is one of my very favorites (obviously. I have the women’s version!) and it’s easily dressed up or down and the fur can be removed.
And LJ got the same parka in a small size and in his signature red color. Yes. He is flossing. There are three things he is obsessed with right now….flossing, snapping and whistling. He is a one-man-show.
I love anyone in a red coat…but especially for a Christmas-y photo shoot. Not only does he look put together but so warm and cozy!
The red plaid shirt we snagged too. We love a traditional plaid and the stretch poplin is great for both boys and girls!
He said to get a photo of him hanging the garland. It looks like he is hugging the tree! LOVE.
And the boys had no problem playing in their outerwear. They did races, hide and seek and even ‘find the number’ (I would call out a number that they had to find on a price tag).
Weston has been telling us that he wanted camo pants so I knew that he would love this Essential Puffer in camo!
He said it was like wearing a blanket 🙂 And my little cuddle-bug knows what a good blanket feels like!
This was just a candid of him trying to fix the broken garland but that’s always how it works. He is my organizer/fixer.
And he told me that he was gonna make a stinky face for this one….because my feet stink. Thanks kid.
Side note – his shirt is this flannel one in red (true to size) and his jeans are the Abercrombie Kids sweatpant jeans (we love them and have a couple different pairs for him – these are GREAT if your kids have texture sensitivities! They feel like a sweatpant but look like a jean!)
And lastly there was Max. Max was just the ham of the night!
Or maybe I should say Ham Pizza 🙂 He got a sequin shirt (remember LJ’s?!) and all the kids LOVED it.
The sequins flip from a Christmas tree to pizza and guys – there isn’t much that gets me more excited than cheese and bread!
He bundled up in a sherpa lined hoodie and I love it when he finds a shirt he loves because with Max it is either topless or only a favorite few!
By far my favorite photo idea was this one. They wanted a picture of them thumb-wrestling 🙂
So if you are planning a photoshoot at a tree farm, I definitely recommend these coats.(And they’re ON SALE RIGHT NOW!) They coordinate so well and would be a good fit for any winter activity all season long. Looks good AND can last to make it to be the best handmedowns? I’m here for it.
p.s. And if you are looking for tree farm that donates trees – here is a great program that gives to our military families!
