trendy ties + dapper dudes

Since our boys are a little too young for official school photos, we thought it would be fun to snap a few formal pictures of them to mark this year in their lives.  A picture to send to grandparents, far away cousins, and even to frame for their dads’ desks at work. Trendy Ties sent these gorgeous thick cotton adjustable ties to help them look extra handsome, and all the sudden look like grown-ups! We also wanted a little card to send with the pictures, and if you’re interested it’s available for free download at the end of this post.

When Nike approached us about collaborating on the “Free Your Moves” campaign and designing the Free 5.0s with the Nike iD system for our kids we were thrilled! The concept immediately conjured thoughts of living room dance parties with our boys. When we can all let loose and be silly and not worry about who’s watching or what they’re thinking. Thankfully our boys don’t have much of that self-consciousness yet, which is such a great daily reminder to be more like them! They are constantly pulling out hilarious dance moves, stalls, kicks, and spins during these sessions and we thought … Read more
