As a Professional Photographer I LOVE going to the mailbox in December! Christmas Cards! Christmas Cards! Christmas Cards! I drop everything I’m doing to tear into those envelopes. As the month passes, I love glancing at my fridge where a HUGE variety of personal photo cards are on display – Pictures of my dearest friends and family. My kitchen doorway, strung with greeting cards, reminds me of how many people bless my life.
Last year I mailed cards with my kiddos looking out our “snow-covered” windows. Candles lit, pensive looks & burnt chins (I had no idea the candle was too close to Landen!) Let me give you the scoop on that session! I was outside on my ladder, with the backdrop BEHIND me (to remove the reflections in the window) . The wind picked up, knocked my stands over, and forced me into a prize fight with my aggressive backdrop. And if that wasn’t bad enough – It started sleeting. I was freezing, frustrated and yelling through the window for my kids to “move right”, “chin up”, “closer to the window”… How can something so meaningful turn into something so stressful???
This year was a little different. Thanks to unseasonably warm weather and an unexpected moment of clarity, I took traditional pictures and designed a simple card. Tah Daaaah!
