I can't say it enough, but I LOVE my Christmas photos this year. (yes that's me shouting)
We don't have drastic season changes in Southern California so I had an idea of having our pictures taken at a local Christmas tree farm to get that "Winter feel."
Jamie with Sweet Jelly Parties created this adorable shoot. She did an amazing job capturing the essences of Christmas. OC Portraits was our photographer and captured some memorable shots for us.
I picked up this JOY sign from Home Goods, it was perfect for this setting with that wood grain effect. Does it look familiar? Its on my front porch now with my DIY birch logs here. This picture makes my daughter look so innocent even if I know she's a lil mischievous.
I wanted this cozy coupe set up for my son this year. I went on a hunt for a used cozy coupe and I doctor'd it up.
I found a used one for $15.00, what a steal, right? I spray painted it, (Rust-oleum plastic spray paint, it's the best!) added a wreath, tied a tree on top with a bow and it's the perfect picture set up for my lil guy. This was one of my favorites from the shoot.
Jamie's idea was to have this Candy Cane stand set up too, this was the hardest to get the kids to cooperate for the photographer. In fact, Grayson even took a face first digger off that chair at one point.
I wanted one of those pictures where you see the kids walking hand in hand from the back. Well, that didn't happen.. (Insert sad face) All Gray wanted to do was sit and play with the dirt on the ground. So my beautiful shot turned into a funny shot of Sissy helping her brother up because he wanted nothing to do with walking at this moment. But that's ok, I still like this one.
This is our Christmas card from Tiny Prints. I chose this card because of the wood grain that matched the setting of the entire shoot. I added a pearl shimmer to the final product, envelope liner and matching address labels
I'm very happy with the final product. The cards are nice & thick.
Right now Tiny Prints is offering some great discounts, so take advantage of these if you can.
