The Holiday Photo Shoot + Our Christmas Cards from Minted!

Well, it’s that time of year again, the annual holiday photo shoot.

Although I love how our photos turned out this year. I won’t even lie, it was a stressful set up. I was leaving town so I had to get it all done before then, which meant rushing to find matching outfits, thinking about a good spot to shoot, getting the hair done, and hoping and praying that the 3 year old didn’t have a melt down. We got it all together, and about 5 minutes into the photo shoot, both of my kids were OVER IT.


After about 30 minutes of sweat and aimless instruction, we were finished. Phew! I was exhausted that day, so I didn’t even bother looking at the photos when I got home. When I thought about it a few days later, I popped my memory card into my computer and… MELT.

At first, she was a tearing terror, but do you wanna know what made her laugh? Fake farts.

I was so happy to be able to capture these moments, and I love that they have the ability to be enhanced with holiday photo cards from MINTED! I created them online at, they have software that allows you to choose a design and add photos, change colors and text, and I love it so much! When they arrived in the mail, I could see that they were custom packaged, by hand, and handled with care. Talk about personalized service!


Family Hoilday Christmas Photo Cards from MINTED


We send out family photo Christmas cards each year, and I couldn’t be happier with how these turned out. They are printed on a thick, quality card stock and come with envelopes that you can customize, if you choose. I love the simplicity of this one, “be merry” in colors that match their clothes just fit so well! I chose a matching print for the back, you can add additional photos there or just leave it blank, up to you.
