Styling a family photo shoot

What a week... I can't believe it's already Thursday! This time next week it will be Thanksgiving! Are you kidding me??? This is flying by way too quickly...

A few days ago my very pregnant ex-roommate emailed me for a favor. She's planning a newborn/family photo shoot in January and asked if I could come up with some outfit options for her. I really really REALLY wish that I had a closet full of stuff and could be their personal photo shoot stylist but time, money and distance will not permit so she will have to make do with my Polyvore creations.

Since they're taking pictures in January (and probably outside) I thought I'd go for several wintery looks with chunky scarves. And then in the last set I changed my mind when I saw the chunky necklace, but we'll get there.

And of course, I gave several options of scarves - Sarah, I do not intend for you to wear 2-3 scarves at once.

It will be Sarah, her husband and her precious baby boy so I decided to get a little carried away and styled all three. I had so much fun putting these outfits together that I really wish I could do this for like a living. Not for crazy fashion magazines but for like real people. I'd have to charge like $500 a set though to make any real money so that probably won't happen... *Sigh... Enjoy!
