Our 2016 Family Pictures and Christmas Cards

December 1, 2016·

 

This is my favorite time of year. I’ve said that a few times. But for real, it is. And one of my favorite things about this time of year is getting Christmas cards from everyone! And I love putting together our Christmas card. I honestly hope this is not a tradition that ever dies out because, honestly, I think that snail mail is a lost art… it’s something people don’t do as often as they used to. But, Christmas Cards seem to stay alive! And I LOVE it!!

I hadn’t even THOUGHT about getting our family pictures done and then in a frantic mess emailed my girl Becky of Rebecca Keller photography and asked if she’d be up for taking our pictures this year. OF COURSE she was amazing, as per usual, and said YES and we set a date! Becky is AMAZING behind the camera and so great at getting our kiddos (and John!!) to smile. Literally my only hope was to get at least one picture of all of us looking. And Becky blew it out of the water! She’s AMAZING. Seriously! Love her. She did our newborn and birth pics with Amos, too! 

Anyway… here are some of my FAVORITE images from our session with Becky!!

And this year, we got our Christmas Cards from Artifact Uprising! I have LOVED Artifact Uprising’s prints, photo books, and wall art… but this was actually my first year ordering from them for our Christmas Cards! And I could NOT love them more!!! The quality is AMAZING and I love the super chic and simple design of this gold foil JOY card. It really just lets the images stand out and I loved being able to add the little note to the back of the card. Our 2016 Family Pictures and our Artifact Uprising Christmas Cards (18) Our 2016 Family Pictures and our Artifact Uprising Christmas Cards (19)
