My Little Dinosaur

by jessicaturner on November 21, 2008

I went to Macys yesterday to get some nice white socks for Elias to wear with his dedication outfit. Well, of course I had to check out the clearance. I found this ADORABLE little outfit for Elias that was on super clearance for $2.34. I had to buy it – just so I could take pictures of him with the hood up.

I put him in it this morning, and even though it was a bit big and he wasn’t smiley, I still love these few shots. I know they are similar, but I couldn’t pick a favorite to post. It is a little big on him, so I am sure there will be more photos in the future. :)

Have you ever bought an outfit just to take pictures of your child in it or is this just the scrapbooker in me? (I can totally see the scrapbook page already – my little dino)

He is THE cutest thing! I haven’t bought an outfit just to scrapbook in, but anytime I go somewhere, I think about which outfits would look best for a scrapbook page!

Which service is he going to be dedicated in? I’m sad to be missing it because I’ll be at the 8:30 nursery and then going to the Titans game.

That last photo needs a bubble of him saying, “Wassup?”

So freaking cute.

I totally did that before she was even born. Here’s my post about it:

Also, my DH wanted a boy JUST to dress/have dinosaur things. I love it!!

I did that recently for my daughter! I found a really adorable outfit that just screamed “picture outfit” AND it was on super sale. I even found a hair bow on sale to match my outfit that I just had to photograph. To this day, I have not been able to take her picture in the outfit. She won’t sit still. It’s like she knows…

ps–he looks SO cute in his dino outfit!

I’ve done the same thing! I love taking a series of pictures with a scrapbook page or blogpost in mind…and I’ve been known to take way to many pictures! And I love buying adorable outfits thinking of a good scrapbook page layout to go in toe!

yah, you want to hear something horrible… I bought this $40 dollar dress at Baby Gap, had my daughter’s pics done in it for Valentine’s Day and then took it back because I was sick that I spent that much money on it! Cute pic… though yes, I am a bad, bad, person!!!

I have this exact same outfit for my Eli…will have to do a Dino page. Great idea!!

Too funny! But, yes I do!

Don’t you think as a scrapbooker, you tend to “set up” shots because they will just look too cute on the page? I’ve been scrapping for a few years now and I take pictures differently since I know certain elements will look that much better on the scrapbook page.
