More than once I’ve heard the tip to filter your photos to black and white in order to mask the fact that your children’s outfits were excruciatingly mismatched, and not in a quirky stylish way.
When San Francisco mom Yuliya Patsay posted this cute baby photo on Instagram, and was transparent about her reasons for using black and white, I asked if I could share it, too.
I don’t like to hide all the trappings of real life all the time (wanna see my home office?) but sometimes a dated couch and carpet setting or even an overly bright piece of baby gear (Fisher Price, I’m looking at you) can be transformed when you drop the colors out of the photo.
