Or in other words… Woo hoo! We have done our Christmas card photo shoot! 


These past few weeks we have been busy taking pictures of clients and family for Christmas cards. We decided to do our own family photo shoot for Christmas pictures this past weekend while we still had a summer tan and good weather. 


We first tried doing it ourselves with a tripod and timer. NOT a good idea with three little kids… I’m sure we would have been hysterical to watch. We got one somewhat good pic out of the bunch. Check out Briana’s face. haha 😉



Thankfully, Mom and Dad Kruse came to save the day. Wanting a more grungy look, we headed outdoors. Mom ran the camera (got settings ready for her, taught her how to focus, and then explained our vision we had with each pose), and Dad helped get the kids attention. They were an awesome team!!! We were so glad to have them help us on the ones we couldn’t take on our own. We love them!

During our first attempts (trying to do it by ourselves), we were thinking, “Why are we doing this?” but truly when we had someone doing it for us, it was a special treat. We loved being on the other side of the camera! It was so much fun! I think we are going to hire them every year. 😉 Here are a few that didn’t make the card…










A few others we took that day…







Here is a slideshow of the rest of the session:

We hope that everyone is enjoying the new year! This was the card that we created for my parents this year. It was supposed to be a Christmas card… but because of Briana’s late arrival, we had to change it to a New Year’s card. This card is a 5×5 trifold card. Our family card is still yet to come. 🙂
