12 Days of Christmas

Christmas card collage

On the first day of Christmas… you get a sneak peak. Of our photo shoot for this years Christmas card! (Well that worked out perfectly… you can sing that to the tune of The 12 Days of Christmas – and yes, I did.)

Last year, we had a Christmas card I absolutely loved. My favorite of ours to date. But this year, I wanted something simple and classic, since it was our last Christmas as a family of just two, our first Christmas living at the beach, and possibly our only Christmas at which I will be 37 weeks pregnant. So we headed to the beach with our camera, our tripod, and a Scottish rug (wool blanket to you Americans) we picked up last Christmastime in Edinburgh.

And while I was very happy with the results (the photos turned out great, and we even shot one of my favorite pictures of the two of us – though we didn’t use it for the card because The Babe was pretty hidden in it) it was all a headache from there. We use Apple to order our cards, and I can not rave enough about the quality AND the customer service. Some pregnant lady sent all our cards to Oklahoma – and after the fiasco of tracking them down and getting them to Mississippi, they were too dark (probably my fault).

Long story short, I got the cards out late last week, so we are ready to debut our 2012 Christmas Card on the blog… this afternoon. But first, a preview of some images we didn’t use.

See you in a few hours loves!

xoxo, Mallory

*I am not paid/perked by Apple – just love how simple & easy their holiday cards are!

    Absolutely beautiful!!

    We’re opting to combine Christmas cards with birth announcements to save money. Sweet baby survived the photos yest and we may wind up of one casually in her Daddy’s arms.

    We had to be flexible, too as li’l S was smaller at birth than expected, and lost a ton of wt. Clothing options were limited, and we may try again later…if she’ll be okay!

  2. As always, it was super cute (tho I did miss the furry faces ;-)… some day I’m stealing your idea from last year.

What do you think?
