Why We Take Christmas Photos- Happy Holiday’s

You aren’t married… you don’t have kids… blah blah. I get asked here and there why Andrew and I take Christmas photos. I wanted to share with you reasons why we do Christmas photos and also the perfect excuse to show you all theses amazing photos shot my the talented Beth Grimm!


Family and Friends- Since Andrew was born and raised in Michigan we do not see his family and friends as often. In general life gets crazy even when we do go home we do not get to see everyone, so we thought it would be a great way to check in with family and friends.


Memories– I love looking back on the past few years and how much we have changed and grown. Whether you’re married, not married, have kids or simply have a dog. It is so fun to look back each year and see how much has changed.

(Just caught that I was clearly flipping the camera off LOL)

Chance to dress up– I feel like the older we get the less opportunities we have to “dress up” so I always try to plan our outfits and pick a spot that is different than the year before.

Discovering new photographers– I love switching up photographers for all types of occasions. Everyone has their own style but yet I try to pick a photographer that has a similar esthetic that overall compliments my style and social media.

Focus on us- Photos are a good time to just be in the moment and not worry about anything else. When we worked with Beth that is exactly how she made us feel. I don’t think we have laughed that hard in a while.


Happy Holiday’s from my little family to yours.
