fluff related (some knits) help me choose outfit for toddler portraits

We're having M's 3rd yr portraits done tomorrow. This particular photographer comes to our house and really likes to get photos of children doing what they usually do when they're home, so dressed in clothes they'd wear normally rather than special occasion/holiday clothes. I've picked out 7 outfits and need help narrowing down to just 2 of them. She wants to get some outdoor photos and some indoors. The forecast is light rain so the outdoor photos she'd be in rainboots, umbrella and raincoat - and I'd probably put her in the jeans for outdoors. Please tell me your 2 favorites!

1. This is a reversible pinafore with cashmere pants by Sweetie Bird Fashions. She's never worn the pants before b/c we got them just before summer. This is probably the dressiest of the outfit options.



2. patchwork dress that I made for her birthday - DH and our neighbor like this best.



3. another patchwork dress but made in fabrics all from the same collection (Aneela Hooey A Walk in the Woods) so it's less boho-patchwork-y like the first one. I like this one better than the other patchwork dress.



4. thrift store jeans with a sleuthing hoodie by Rach of Gizmo Knits...my favorite sweater.



5. same thrift store jeans with Boden striped dress.



6. classic girly crankypants (custom size) for my tall girl, which are my all time favorite longies paired with a plain white shirt.



7. beautiful new knit skirt with matching headband by Lynne of Cabbages & Kings and solid long sleeve tee.

I REALLY love 1 and 2. One is dressy though so maybe #2 would be best? I absolutely love your little dresses though.

I like # 1 and 2 the best. I would probably pick 2. But all your choices are pretty!

I like 1 and 4. For me 4 is totally the style my girls wear though - very casual with some girly flair. What suits her personality the most? The skirt in #7 is TDF!!!!

1 & 7. I love 4, but if you're going to do jeans outside, I'd do something a bit dressier inside.

With the exception of 1 and 7, which are both new, she wears all of these frequently....she practically lived in the patchwork dresses this summer. LOL I guess when I really think about it, she dresses up more than she goes casual/jeans and when she does wear jeans, I generally pair them with a dress. Thank you all for the replies! I'll let you know later what I decide on :-)
