Our Holiday Photos

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! I meant to post this last week, but there were so many gift ideas and flash sales to write about, I ran out of space and time.

Have you seen those hilarious articles on family photo shoot fails? It made me laugh, because that’s one of my favorite things to see on Facebook at this time of year, and I can totally relate. Kids are ridiculously hard to photograph — even relatively calm ones, like Georgia — and we had no shortage of outtakes from our picture session for this year’s Christmas Card. Such as:

But in the end, the vast majority came out amazing, and we had loads to choose from for our holiday card. We couldn’t be happier!

JPG is an award-winning studio based out of Philadelphia, founded by one of my best friends from college. They did our wedding, too, seven years ago. We re-created some of the falling leaves theme pictures from the day we got married, this time with the best product our marriage: Georgia!

Who did you use for your holiday cards this year? We used minted and loved them because, as time-crunched parents, the option to have our envelopes addressed festively and for free sealed the deal. I also love supporting independent artists, which is who you’re buying from when you use minted. I even got a thank-you card from our card’s designer!

We also made photo gifts for the grandparents using Shutterfly & TinyPrints this year and last. We made these desktop plaques, which are great because they are shatter- and spill-proof and look really professional; we’ve also made countless photo books, magnets and ornaments, and the quality is always great. You can go to town custom designing (like I do), or use one of their out-of-the-box templates so all you do is drag and drop your photos. Easy as pie! (By the way, whoever made up that saying? Pie is a ton of work).

Merry Christmas Eve everyone, and have a safe, blessed, and joyous holiday, from our family to yours!
