Have you begun your back to school shopping yet? Despite the fact that we homeschool our children, we still found ourselves needing a few new items. My boys seem to have shot up in height over the Summer and outgrew most of their pants!
When you think of a Back to School wardrobe for your kids, what’s the priority? In this house it’s all about comfort! I want my littles feeling free to run, jump, and play. I don’t want them being irritated by itchy materials or distracted by a lack of flexibility.
Cuteness is definitely another factor we look for. I strongly believe that kids should be kids, and I don’t want them forced into a look that doesn’t suit their age. This is what constantly draws us to the Carters | OshKosh brand! Their items can be dressed up or dressed down, but the theme that runs throughout all of their lines is quality, comfort, and cuteness!
The Importance of Documenting Childhood
Every fall I try to do a little photo shoot of my kids from home. It gives me something to hang on the walls and allows me to see how much they’ve grown over the past year. I like to put them in their new ‘big kid’ outfits for this occasion, even if it’s something simple.
I don’t consider myself highly skilled in the photography department, but with a decent camera and a portrait lens, even I can pull off some great photos of my children!
It’s really easy to get stuck in the rut of sticking to cell phone photos. I myself run into this problem all the time! Today I’d really like to encourage you to pull out your point and shoot or DSLR camera while photographing your children, especially for those big events like Back to School. It’s so worth the effort to get high quality images of our kids while they’re still young!
