Casual Summer Staples

My sister orchestrated a family photo session for the first time in nearly a decade. To say my parents were excited is a major understatement. Wear white, navy, and/or pale pink. Those were our directions. Those colors account for 75% of my wardrobe. I settled on a pair of plain white pants with a blue peplum top. 

My sister gifted the session to our mom for Mother’s Day, which is, by far, the best gift idea ever. Don’t worry, Meghan, I’m not taking credit for it. My sister had a local photographer, Karen Morneau, come take the pictures in her backyard. She photographed my niece several times during her first year, and we were always so impressed with the pictures. We spent the afternoon smiling, laughing, and then doing what we do best- eating and drinking wine.
