Breakfast at our house: a photo-documentary shoot with Jenny Jimenez (+ bonus Care Bear onesies for the whole family)

Posted by

Some of you who’ve been reading for a while may be familiar with the family portrait shoots I’ve done with Jenny Jimenez in the past — she did our maternity shoot, and then a shoot with Tavi at six months last spring. To say I love Jenny’s eye is an understatement — I trust this woman to capture some pretty pivotal moments in my life. She is amazing.

So when Jenny contacted me a couple months ago wanting to do a different kind of photo shoot, I was all ears. She wanted to do a shoot that was more photo documentary style — no posed shots, no forced smiles. She wanted to capture our family just doing what we do.

What we do most Saturdays is snuggle a bit in bed, and then get up and have pancakes. And so Jenny showed up a little before 7 one morning (!!!), and followed us around for an hour. The photos that follow are the result — with the exception of the last few shots at the end that feature the most ridiculous family rompers evar.

So yeah, about the Care Bear rompers: after stumbling across Etsy seller BangBangCrash a few months ago, I convinced Andreas to let me purchase a set of custom rompers for the entire family. He begrudgingly agreed, and when Jenny ended our shoot by saying “Any shots you want me to get?” I said “Um, can we put on our Care Bear rompers just for fun?” The rest is embarrassing family photo history!

If you’re inspired by the Care Bear rompers, BangBangCrash makes amazing custom-made animal rompers like dinosaurs, frogs, and even Max from Where The Wild Things Are. I know what MY family is going as for Halloween — how about yours?

  1. As much as I love a good posed set of photos, candid moments are my favorite! Jenny definitely has an amazing eye.
    p.s. all the colors (colors everywhere!) in the pictures make me super happy! 😀

  2. Love the rompers! My husband would never be caught dead in one, but total cuteness.

    Also, we attempted the epic pancake eating last weekend. I told my husband, Babies love pancakes! But evidently they did not meet my son’s approval, because he only ate two. I’ll have to try your recipe.
