This year for our Christmas cards I wanted to do something fun. My original idea was a family shoot with all of us out in the field with the cutest props I had been stockpiling. I won’t go into to much detail because I can still do it next year. 🙂 Anyhow, time got away from me. I was extremely busy with family photo shoots and throwing 4 Christmas parties before December 1st for the blog that I just didn’t have the time to style something the way I wanted.

The colors looked true to my actual photo which is a huge deal for me as a photographer and the quality of the card stock was spot on.
