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