My Family Christmas Cards Throughout The Years + More Holiday Pictures

December 2, 2016

stewart-christmas-card-2016Every year since Elle was born, we’ve taken a family Christmas photo in our living room. My husband asked me why didn’t we take a family Christmas photo the two years before she was born when it was just us and Joel. I have no idea husband. You’re the photographer, why didn’t we? Trying to put it all on me.

We start planning for our family Christmas card photo shoot in Oct.  I sit down with my husband aka the photographer, we open up our November calendars to collaborate on which day in November we can shoot for the card.  After we agree on that date and put it in our calendars we agree on a due date for him to get the photos to me. This date has to be before December to allow me enough time to go onto TinyPrints to design the Christmas card, get his feedback and then to order the card.  Sometime before the Christmas Card photo shoot we discuss our wardrobe and color coordination.

the funny thing about this picture was that I still had some of my Autumn decorations out, can you see them?
