Last week we had a beautiful little family photoshoot to welcome baby Cruz into our life.
We had newborn photos done exclusively of Cruz, just like we did of Leo.
And then we had some family photos done as well. We’ve never had family photos done before, so it was so nice to get some professional photos of all of us to keep and treasure forever 🙂
I cannot wait to show you guys all the photos when I get the finals from the photographer 😀
I tried to colour coordinate all of our outfits a bit so we looked cohesive, but not too cliche and ‘matchy matchy’ 🙂
I bought this beautiful Navy & White Striped Jumpsuit from Esther Boutique, so I figured navy and white was a good colour scheme for our outfits 🙂
Leo wore a plain white t-shirt with navy & white striped leggings, both from Big W.
And Rick wore a white shirt and navy chino shorts, both from Roger David 🙂
Obviously the 3 boys didn’t need much done to their hair, Rick would say cause he’s just naturally ‘perfect’ – But also them having incredibly low-maintenance hair helps 😛
For me on the other hand, I went super simple – Washed my hair the night before and then gave it a quick straighten on the day to make it nice & smooth.
Just like my hair, I tried to go super simple with my makeup – Mostly to ensure it came across nice on the photos & with flash, and to ensure I didn’t look ridiculous against the 3 boys who obviously had no makeup on HA! 🙂
Essentially I followed all the steps I laid out for you guys in my ‘Everyday Makeup Routine’ blog post a couple of weeks back. So get check that out if you’d like more details and a list of products 🙂
For our photographer, I found this beautiful girl on Instagram and could not recommend her enough!
She is amazing, made us all feel really comfortable, and definitely made out pictures look super relaxed and natural. Which is exactly what we wanted <3
Keep your eyes peeled for photos of my Instagram / Facebook of our final photos from the shoot 😀
