After a long hiatus I’ve been picking up the camera again. A little bit here and there…a school event, a shoot for work…and it feels a bit rusty, but good. As the kids grow and I get busy and busier, I tend to forget to pause and take in those moments where the light is just right.
That’s why I’m so excited for holiday card sending season. Seriously! Last year (as evidenced by above) we had a grand time tromping about a local farm’s tree lot to take our yearly holiday card photo. It was a great excuse for a family outing, and the perfect outlet for the holiday-based creative urge.
This year, like last year, we’re ordering our Holiday Photo Cards from Tiny Prints again (good gravy are their cards pretty), and I’m again slipping into creative mode, trying to art direct a shoot ahead of time like it’s an Yves St Laurent ad. We all know it’s going to end up devolving into a 4-year-old and a 9-year-old getting into a tickle fight in the middle of a petting zoo, but let’s just use our imaginations for a bit and hope for the best.
PS – Tiny Prints is having a great 20% off sale right now on holiday photo cards, as well as a ton of other deals on their Special Offers page.
I received complimentary holiday photo cards from Tiny Prints to facilitate this post.
I only write about products and companies that I believe in.
