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.

 

Minted// The perfect holiday cards

 

Minted is by far my favorite company to work with when it comes to stationary. Creating our Christmas Cards this year was so much fun especially now that we have Luther.

Details are something I really enjoy when it comes to the holiday’s. This is one detail I really enjoy making! Minted is such a great resource for any type of occasion they have so much to offer. Did I mentioned they have foil pressed options, I love that I went ahead and got the Rose gold foil option!

Be sure to check out this fun video I created down below! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, I sure did. Have a great week ahead 🙂
