I saw a lot of orange wearing people yesterday, and while I get dressing in ‘theme’ for the patch, at the same time I wanted to tell people that their photos might actually be better if they’d not tried to match the pumpkins. We love the pumpkin patch. There’s a huge one in the next town that has world’s biggest corn maze. (We don’t do that part – girls are still too little)
Can you see my girls out there? This is one angle, it goes on like this in all directions far as you can see. Acres and acres of pumpkins & corn! Note if I’d dressed them in orange you wouldn’t even notice them out there.
Now I’m not a professional photographer, nor will I ever be one, I just like picture taking. The photo above is a favorite – they were so sweaty and dirty!! The photo below is self-portrait style. I love doing those with the girls just for f un. Also, loved B’s peacock blue + my green.
Have you noticed we’re not wearing orange? Or seasonal special shirts either? This is intentional. I wanted Elizabeth in a different shirt but she insisted on her guitar shirt. It still works for me – pink + brown look great with the orange, straw, and green of the patch. That’s my key – wear a color that contrasts but compliments you against the patch. NOT ORANGE!!!
My personal favorite colors to wear are green, peacock or navy blue, a deep burgundy/wine, or brown to the pumpkin patch. You’ll stand out better, the pictures will be prettier, and pretty much they work with most of your fall papers & scrapbook supplies too.
