HOW TO GET THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS CARD


1. FIND A PHOTOGRAPHER.

FINDING A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT MEETS YOUR FAMILY'S NEEDS IS SO IMPORTANT. I LOOK FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT IS DETAIL ORIENTED, CONFIDENT GIVING DIRECTION, AND HAS EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH YOUNG KIDS.

HERE ARE A FEW PHOTOGRAPHERS WE HAVED LOVED USING:

LITTLE SOCIAL CO.- SHE SHOT THE GORGEOUS PHOTOS IN THIS POST AND ALSO SPECIALIZES IN NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY.

CAVIN ELIZABETH- SHE SHOT OUR ENGAGEMENT AND WEDDING PHOTOS. OUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS WERE PUBLISHED ON THE STYLE ME PRETTY BLOG HERE, AND OUR WEDDING PHOTO WAS FEATURED ON @WEDDINGWIRE.

CHASING DAYLIGHT- SHE GAVE AMAZING DIRECTION WITH OUR FOUR CHILDREN! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO SPECIALIZES IN OUTDOOR FAMILY PHOTOS, SHE IS YOUR GIRL. YOU CAN SEE THE PHOTOS SHE TOOK OF OUR FAMILY HERE.

2. PICK YOUR OUTFITS.

I PREFER OUR FAMILY TO WEAR AN ENHANCED VERSION OF WHAT THEY WOUD NORMALLY BE COMFORTABLE IN WITH THEIR PERSONAL STYLE, RATHER THAN ALL MATCH PERFECTLY.

THE LOCATION OF THE SHOOT PLAYS A HUGE ROLE IN THE WARDROBE SELECTION AS WELL. WARM TONES PAIR BEAUTIFULLY WITH DESERT SHOTS, WHILE COOL TONES LOOK GREAT ON A BEACH OR IN HOME SHOOT.

HERE ARE THE OUTFITS WE WORE FOR OUR CHRISTMAS PHOTOS THIS YEAR:

AUTUMN: GREEN JUMPSUIT (SIMILAR)

STACY: OVERSIZED SWEATER + PAIGE JEANS - NOW 40% OFF!

EVIE: GREY CROCHET DRESS

ELLIE: WHITE BLOUSE + RED MOTO PANTS

OWEN: PLAID SHIRT+ HUDSON JEANS

STORY: BOW + PLAID BABY DRESS

3. ENJOY YOURSELVES.

STAY CALM AND DON'T STRESS.

WE RECENTLY STARTED TO PLAN SOMETHING FUN TO DO AS A FAMILY TOGETHER AFTER OUR PHOTOS ARE FINISHED. HAVING SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO AFTERWARDS HAS HELPED MOMMIES AND KIDS IN THOSE OH SO STRESSFUL MOMENTS.
