Tonight I started to think about what we should wear and how I want the picture to look. I realized I had some research to do: Google image research. Here's a screen shot:
Lessons learned from my content analysis: Common themes are red/blue and stripes are always a plus.
Though I love the family twinners from the pictures, I felt there was something missing. We'll be taking our pictures the same week we celebrate our country. Our pictures will undoubtedly need a patriotic theme. I have to keep in mind that it might be chilly on the Coast. And most importantly, I want it to show our family love.
Here's a general sketch of how I'm thinking we should do it.
PS--I'd love to hear stories about your matching family pictures you've been forced to be a part of or you've planned on your own!
