Christmas Cards|| 2017

I know I know, we are not married and we do not have kids so why do we do Christmas cards?! 3 years ago we decided to send them out. Curious why? Well, the year Andrew moved down here was when we started because he is from Michigan and has a big family. We thought his family would love it and love to receive snail mail. Of course any chance I get to take photos with this handsome devil I take it. The last two years we have had Mr. Luther and I think he makes them 😉 Oh and of course Andrew’s awesome mustache this year LOL.

This was the first year I had a vision that came to life, the fun dress, the greenery, and the scene was perfect.

This was one vision that FAILED haha but it was hilarious. The wreath hole was way to small, haha. Bless his little heart, he was so confused.

I mean look at him! As much crap I gave him for that dang mustache it really did make our pictures even better.

Find a guy who looks at you this way <3 My heart, Luther loves the camera. I was nervous because I am always the one taking our photos or his and he did awesome with Kiesha.

Being a photographer I am very choosy with who takes my photos because I am a perfectionist. I was blown away when Keshia Pietz Photography when she sent me these photos. They were so on point with my vision. Photos hold a dear place in my heart and one thing I tell everyone is PRINT PRINT PRINT YOUR PHOTOS. Yes, the digital world is great, but I love printing my photos, making books paper cover books.

I send photos all the time to Andrew’s family and my mom who lives out of town as well.  I wanted to share some of my favorite places to print precious moments and gift those special moments below.

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 🙂

Coca Cola 4th of July Weekend

Happy Sunday! What has everyone been up to this Holiday weekend?! Whats up with this rainy weather. I am looking forward to some sunshine tomorrow, hopefully. Despite the rain it overall has been a great weekend so far. Full of family, friends and I had a wedding yesterday that I filmed.

Since it is rainy today headed to do some retail therapy and found a cute handkerchief for Luther Nash that he will wear tomorrow! The only thing that was missing from this shoot was a nice cold coke in a bottle!!
