A Little Pop of Color

I received the dress featured in this post for the purpose of review.

We had our family photos taken toady. It's quite the experience, to say the least. Eight kids are hard to wrangle and try to get them all to smile at once is nearly impossible. But, this day has been in planning for over a month! As you can imagine, finding the perfect clothing for a family photo shoot with a family of 10 is a bit daunting. With our last family photos we went with a grey theme...this time we wanted to do a little less matchy-matchy. 

The difficult thing is to find outfits that coordinate for many different ages and genders. Gymboree is fantastic for this. With clothing sizes of newborn to 12 years, you can find some great family looks that coordinate and will be perfect for that family photo shoot!

Our photographer, Tatum of Tatum Photo + Design, suggested that we add some pops of color into our outfits, and I love that we were able to get some great colors that still went with one another.

For Annabelle, we chose the Gem Ponte Dress and added some really fun tights to go along with it to give her that pop of color- and helped her dress fit in with the other boys' outfits, too!

The holiday season is the best time to be a kid. All the wonder, all the surprises, it's something we want to capture in our photographs! I adore this dress. It's classic elegance makes it timeless- this is a dress that will look great even when we're looking back at it in 10 years, which is good considering we WILL be looking at our family photos in 10 years (and hopefully not wanting to submit them to an awkward family photo website)!

Each of the gems on the dress are sewn on, although you cannot tell that they are unless you very closely inspect them. The quality of the fabric is wonderful, it's thick and comfortable to wear. The entire Joyful Holiday collection is great, and will be perfect for your family photo needs- it even includes items for Mom and Dad!

If you are looking for great family looks this season, be sure to check out the new collections that just came out, too, and the great sales that are going on!

I can't wait to show you the rest of our photos, be on the lookout for another post soon!

Gymboree is the BEST! They always have great stuff, and it always lasts far longer than other clothes we buy. I LOVE the dress you chose for Annabelle!!
