Our Christmas Cards


Allow me to present... our most FAVORITE Christmas cards of all time! I am so in love with how these turned out. We went out to a Christmas tree farm over Thanksgiving weekend with our favorite local photographer (that we also used for Hadley's newborn pictures) and while the weather wasn't the greatest, she still nailed it and got some great shots. We were freezing our buns off in the cold wind, but I mean that smile! It's perfection. She is the happiest little lady. The only thing missing was our Brady boy, but maybe when he can keep himself calm in public, he can join the photo shoots again... so probably in like five more years. Crazy pup.

As for the card itself, we used Tiny Prints this year and I couldn't be happier. There were an abundance of amazing cards to chose from - pretty sure I was torn between 15 different designs at one point! - and they really know how to make your life easier at this b u s y time of year with offering personalized envelopes (you can even have them addressed!) and being able to purchase postage, among other things. Most definitely take advantage of that! Prices were super reasonable as well, even for the gold foil that we chose. It's gorgeous in person.


Since I never sent out a birth announcement for Hadley (#momfail), I decided to include it on the back of our card. I mean personalizing the back was free, so no way could I leave it blank! 


My only complaint? That I didn't order enough cards. When they came in the mail, I was SO EXCITED about how they turned out, that I was just handing them off to everyone. The UPS man, the daycare people at the gym, sending some to Nick's work - you name it. Next year I'll be ordering lots and lots more!

So from our little family to yours- Merry Christmas, friends!

  16. You already know how much I love your card! I can't believe the quality from Tiny Prints, I need to remember them for next year. And, ha to Brady! I was wondering where he was, but totally makes sense. I remember by the end of our mini session, Finn had had enough and was going crazy.

  19. These are beautiful! You would never know y'all were freezing. And I love the idea of the birth announcement on the back. Wish I had thought of that! Don't worry, I didn't order enough either. I blame it on the mommy brain! Hope y'all had a merry Christmas!
