    Prep + Styling Tips For Your Fall Family Photoshoots

    10 Tips for Preparing for Family Photoshoots | Oh Lovely Day

    Fall family photos are my fave (say that fast three times!) and fall is the most popular time for family photoshoots, since you all want a current photo for those holiday cards. Since we’ve had 8 family photoshoots since Charlie was born (well, 6 plus one maternity and then a recent newborn shoot for Calvin), so I feel like I’m becoming an expert. And while some of these tips are kiddo related, you can use a lot of these to prep for an engagement session as well.  Read More »

    Earlier this week I featured a stunning Autumn Harvest Wedding Inspiration Shoot, and today I wanted to feature more of the gorgeous bridal look. Because it was that good. The makeup, the hair, the red lips, the floral choices, the Claire Pettibone gown, the fab gold head piece, and of course the ring…it was spot on for a fall bride, or just fall beauty inspiration.

    Fall is my absolute favorite time of year: sweater weather, all things pumpkin, changing leaves, fall family fun – it’s the best. Even though fall weather hasn’t reached Los Angeles yet (still coming off what I hope is our last heat wave of the year), I’m getting in the spirit thanks in part to this stunning Autumn Bounty inspiration I’m sharing today.

    11 Best No Carve Pumpkin Ideas

    Pumpkin carving is always a favorite activity of mine, but I also like to decorate pumpkins in a way that lasts beyond Halloween. Plus, I have a very stubborn toddler who wants to do everything himself right now, and that would include holding a knife, so carving is out for us this year. Instead, we’ll be painting and decorating pumpkins in other ways. I’ve rounded up my favorite no-carve pumpkin ideas.

    •  Quincy and I went to the #redCARpetsafety event today, which raises awareness for baby safety. Saw friends @uppababy @munchkin @ergobaby @babyganics & made some new ones like @thestep2company @showmeyourmumu as well. Quincy was making eyes at all the ladies, but he flirted the biggest with Caila with the good hair (which should totally be her hashtag). And all the new moms and moms-to-be were asking about this sling @mywildbird! Which made me think of a good #momtip: Taking Quincy on the go is so much easier thanks to babywearing and that @loyal_hana jumpsuit -- the hidden zippers make it so easy to nurse Quincy while wearing him in the sling. No one even knows I'm breastfeeding! Makes it so much easier to go places, especially with other little ones. I did a whole post on ohlovelyday.com about breastfeeding while babywearing if you want more tips! #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys #babywearing #normalizebreastfeeding  If I got to take two naps a day I'd be this happy too.  And for all of you who have asked me about this playmat, I blogged all about it today -- link in profile. #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys
       Watching these three interact with each other over breakfast makes me flash forward to seeing them doing the same thing as big boys and teenagers and it makes me smile and shed a little tear at the same time. And then I think about how much cereal and milk I'm gonna have to buy  #thefredrickboys #lifewithboys  It's been one of those days (weeks, months, years) where everything is going wrong. Been up since 4:45 since I couldn't get Quincy back to sleep after a feeding. Calvin fell asleep in the stroller on a walk at 10:30 (something he hasn't done since he was like 5 months old!) so his normal nap (my break to eat/shower/work/rest or only have one child to care for for a couple hours) is gone for the day. Quincy pooped all over himself so bad that we were both literally covered in . And he's already woken up from his afternoon nap after only 45 very short minutes. And I'm supposed to have a date with my husband tonight except I'm exhausted and covered in  and have no time to do anything about either one. Oh, and I fell down the stairs (sore but not hurt). Motherhood: somedays you win, somedays you lose. But on all the days you are, to some extent in this season of motherhood, covered in shit.  Here's hoping the weekend is less shitty, in all the ways. #beerme #battlefieldmotherhood
