With Christmas fast approaching, I knew I wanted to get holiday cards but I also knew that we needed an updated family photo. As much as I would have LOVED to have had one of my favorite photographers capture us in the finest light, there was simply no more time left to get it done. Enter: the camera self timer.
John was fighting off a bad cold, Briar was desperate to jump out of my arms and roll in the dirt, and I had to change my shirt twice, BUT WE MADE IT HAPPEN. I got a great family photo (plus a few more gems!) and my dream of sending out holiday cards in 2015 was actually made feasible. Small victories, people.
This year I partnered with Pear Tree Greetings and chose a brushed gold style holiday card from Genevieve Gorder’s collection (P.S. I love her). My love affair with a gold is showing no signs of stopping plus I love the simple design.
These cards are so thick! I’m obsessed with sturdy paper goods and these totally fit the bill.
On the back, I took a single photo slot and turned it into two images with a little Photoshop magic. I like to bend the rules, what can I say? ;) I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season and receiving lots of happy mail!
