Christmas Card Worthy!?

Leave it to me to not take any holiday photos of my own family.
I've been pretty busy on the weekends with photography bookings for others and just haven't gotten around to it.

At the very least, I needed a cute pic {or two} of the kids in front of the tree.
And I did!
I totally had to bribe them with candy to get them both to cooperate long enough...

I knew I didn't want anything too traditional... no red & green or too cutesy.  Luckily, it worked out great and I will be using a few of these for our Christmas cards!  Which I ordered and will be picking up in a few days, by the way! Go me!!

So, even though I did leave it to the last minute, I'm very pleased with how they turned out & our friends & family WILL be receiving their holiday cards on time this year!

Do you get your family photos done for Christmas cards? Do you do your own?
Do you have a new ''theme'' every year?

  1. I love the sweet nose to nose one, so cute.

    I usually take our own pics, I couldn't decide on just a few this year and I found an awesome card layout that had a bunch of pictures. I love it!

  2. these are so cute! i love the non-traditional-ness :)

  3. Those are precious, love the first two the most :)) I would use those, beauties :))

  4. Those are adorable!

    We usually end up with a picture of the husband and I adventuring...or in the case of this year a collage of adventuring and us sitting on the couch drinking beer watching TV.

  5. OMG that nose to nose photo is so precious!

    I would like to do family photos every year. We didn't this year except in the summer when my stepdaughters were visiting and I don't think they came out so spectacular. I didn't realize clothing mattered A LOT.

  6. Good for you! I think as a photographer myself it was always the worst to try to do my holiday cards during the season esp while working in the studio... if I did get them shot, I never managed to get them in the mail :( I did Vday cards for years, and some years (prior to the kid) I did Halloween notes wishing well for the season... These are super cute bribe or not, sometimes the casual - less formal is so the way to go!

  7. SO great! Yes, these are definitely christmas card worthey. And I LOVE your yellow wall!

  8. Those are great!

    No my family refuse to let me take family photos :( They are so going to regret it one day!

  9. Love the nose to nose! You are an amazing photographer, xoxo

  10. Nose to nose pic is precious!
    I don't think Reagan is going to allow me to do pro pics this year. She's in a stage.
    I'm going to have to settle for pics we've already taken.


  11. That first picture is basically the cutest thing I've seen. Ever.

  12. Aw! Those turned out too cute!!! I usually just use a few of my favorite photos from the year.

  13. You did great! Your babies are so adorable :) I took our picture this year, and this will be the first in many years that my husband & I will make an appearance.

  14. They look awesome!
    Love the nose to nose one.

    I just took my kiddos pictures, not the traditional xmas garb, but they were in front of tree. Not even ours... they had a display set up downtown so we used it :)

  15. These pictures are GORGEOUS! Lena your kids look PRECIOUS! I have to say that I love the fact that they are not traditional pictures, it gets boring looking at the same color scheme and poses over and over again.

    I love love LOVE the nose to nose one! My favorite :)
