Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there who have sacrificed so much to raise their sons and daughters. And a special happy Father’s Day to the single moms out there who have played the role of both parents.
Kyla’s outfit this month is dedicated to Father’s Day. I had Lawrence pick out an outfit that he wanted to wear on Father’s day and made a matching corresponding outfit. Lawrence picked out a white dress shirt and a matching blue with white polka-dot bow tie that he got from Banana Republic. I found a blue polka with silver polka-dot cotton fabric that was similar to Lawrence’s bow tie, but decided to make Lawrence a bow tie as well. I found a pretty simple bow tie pattern thanks to Sew Like My Mom: (http://sewlikemymom.com/mens-bow-tie-tutorial/). The outfit turned out pretty good!
On Saturday, I took my 2 “models” out to Solana Beach to this cute design-center street called Cedro St for a photo shoot. Kyla initially didn’t want anything to do with it:
But eventually she warmed up and the Father’s Day photoshoot turned out really well. Lawrence fell into the “model” role because as we stopped by a couple stores after the photo shoot, I found myself carrying everything including Kyla, my camera, and my props bag, while Lawrence was strutting around empty handed. When I asked Lawrence for some help he said “Oh I thought I was still playing your model.” Haha. Oh Lawrence.
