Style File: Katie (Family Photo Shoot)

I got an email from Katie a few weeks ago, asking for a family photo shoot style board. She has a family of six (she, her husband, and 4 kids - boy 8, girl 7, boy 4, baby boy 4 months). As she lives out of state, we had all our communication via email. I asked for some photos that she liked the look of and she sent me this:

This Central Park family photo shoot from Design Mom took place last year, and I had forgotten all about it. But it's too fantastic. All the primary colors and patterns!

I used it as my starting point. After speaking with Katie we decided that yellow wasn't the best hue for her fair skinned family. We nailed down the color scheme she was looking for, and I built this style board:

Next Level Dress - DownEast Basics - $32.99
Annibelle Pleather Belt - Blue - Forever 21 - $6.80
Cailey Slingback Flat - Red - Payless Shoe Source - $12.99

Woven Posey Ruffle Dress - Forever 21 - $19.90
Fiona Flower Flat - Payless Shoe Source - $12.99

Urban Pipeline® Solid Pique Polo - Forest Green - Kohls - $8.99
Snap-Pocket Accent Jean - Forever 21 - $11.99
Perforated Lakeside Slip-On - Payless Shoe Source - $19.99

Mini Stripe Polo - Nautico - The Childrens Place - $8.00
Cargo Staple Pants - Forever 21 - $10.99
Boys Patterned Canvas Sneakers - Green Plaid - Old Navy - $16.50

Chaps Dot Silk Tie - Navy - Kohls - $19.20
Men's Patterned Shirts - Yellow Tattersall - Old Navy - $19.50
