2. Next, put all of the dresses together (for a girl), all of the bottoms together and all of the tops together.
3. Now get ready to shoot some pictures. Take a white sheet and lay it on the bed. This is going to be the back drop for all of the outfits. Set up your camera on a tripod if you have one so that you can just go back and snap a picture and move on to the next outfit. If you don’t have a tripod, no worries, just have your camera sitting nearby to use.
4. Start with the dresses because those are easy. Lay a dress on the bed; pick out appropriate shoes to go with the dress. Are there accessories that go with the dress? Lay any necklaces, earrings, scarves, belts or hats down near the dress. Snap the picture.
5. After all of the dresses are completed you can move on to the separates. Pick out a bottom, be it pants, shorts or skirt and lay it on the bed. Now look in the closet and pull out all of the tops that will go with that bottom. One at a time lay the tops on the bed with the bottom, add any accessories and snap a picture. Now you can see that many things will go with a black skirt, but if it’s a ruffled skirt make sure to only pair unruffled tops with it. Sometimes the accessories won’t need to change and you can just change the top and take another picture. Continue going through the entire wardrobe like this.
Now you will need to print or have photos made of all of the outfits.
6. Gather together a 3-ring binder, some subject dividers with 3-ring holes and blank paper or cardstock with 3-ring holes.
7. Create different categories for the outfits. These will be up to you, but here are some ideas to get your started, play clothes, school clothes, church clothes and dress clothes.
8. Go through the pictures and put them in piles according to the categories you just created. Count how many outfits you have for each category and insert that many blank pages into the binder behind its divider.
9. Finally, use some double sided tape to adhere the photos to the individual sheets. Write any notes on the page, if your child can read, telling them any extra information they might need. Like, make sure you wear white underwear with these white pants.
