Getting the family Christmas card shot, designed and in the mail sometimes is more of a headache than we bargained for. We set the bar pretty high when we did our first card, one when Katie was just a few months old. We posed her with nothing but strategically placed garland, ribbons and bows, surrounded by lights with one smile coaxed out of her.
Since then, we have done some that were more fun than others, but have hit our stride the past couple of years. This year, Crystal found this idea online and we set about implementing it. It really didn’t take long; in fact, most of the heavy lifting she did in actually laying out the card.
We were pleased with the final results. We also have a few fun portraits with the kids – bonus!
