Often decorating schemes start from a favorite rug or painting that you pull colors from. We don't even have that, so it makes it a little harder. However, it is a fun learning process and it will happen over time.
So for a start, here's my kids silhouettes! I love love how they turned out. Each of them totally describes their personality right now. I found the tutorial from my friend Rachel's blog What I Made Today, now you can make them too. Everyone is doing it. :)
Boy K needed a haircut and decided he wanted a mohawk. Against my better judgement, we gave it to him and if spiked, it doesn't look half bad. But I am glad he doesn't like it that much and wants to cut it off. This is his rocker pose. Seriously, this says so much about him: does he make silly faces constantly at the camera, yes; rolling eyes at the camera, yes; doing his own dressing, even if it's wearing 2 pairs of athletic shorts over each other (it's cool - and yes, I let him wear them to preschool), yes.
On the other hand, Girl A is very photogenic and loves to have her picture taken. She'll pose nicely for me and do princess smiles. She's a happy girl and this is a perfect capture of her laughing when I took her picture.
You might question me saying this is a personality shot, but I think it's perfect. Here's our Little Boy S. He's cute, he doesn't know how to smile yet, and he had blue eyes. He's bald, squirmy, and has stinky diapers. He's a baby and this is the perfect pose for him.
