Our 2015 Holiday Photos and Card

Holiday family photo time! Our friend Lauren Ristow snapped these pictures for us, and as usual she got a ton of photos quickly and painlessly, which is a plus when working with children. She is the best! I love, love the result of family photo sessions but really do not enjoy getting them taken. I stress about outfits (after seeing these remind me to never wear a loose dress again...) and then I always quietly stress about the actual session while it's happening. With kids you never know what you're going to get, but Lauren always surprises us with so many wonderful photos, even when I wonder how anyone could manage to get any! For instance in this shoot, our normally super happy Charlie boy wouldn't crack a smile, and Henry was more interested in playing than photo taking! But we did manage to get some good ones. Like I said, Lauren is just the best and one of my favorite photographers. She actually uses real film, and most of these were shot with her regular camera. Very cool.

And just like every year, we went with Tiny Prints for our holiday cards. We've worked with them for years and years for every occasion and we've always been so happy with their quality and service. Right now Tiny Prints is also offering 40% off sitewide with code "40SWDEC". You can totally get your cards in time to mail out by Christmas too, if you order in the next week or so. Happy holidays!
