a holiday family photo shoot

we forget to send out holiday photos in time every year. so, this morning, i got the kids all dressed and made them sit outside in the cold (in the manner of any true fashion blogger kids) and we took a few photos for our card. here's a sampling.




i think they turned out pretty good, even though you can tell we are cold (henry in particular). do you send out holiday cards every year? do you send them out in time? ours may still not get out in time, even though i have now documented the fact that we do indeed have a photo!

Megan you look gorgeous, Chris handsome, and the kids sweet as can be. I love how Ava is holding her arm like a little model. Love. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo I may have to reblog this...

  13. These are such lovely photos! I do hope you use them for cards--would be a waste not too:-)
    I usually send out cards, and still plan to this year, but mine are the ones you get Christmas week, and sometimes the week after Christmas if you don't check your mail the day before Christmas Eve....*sigh*.
    Your family is beautiful.

  14. Wow - I LOVE this!!! It's so "madmen" oh it's just perfect! My (girl) cousins and I had a funny little photo-shoot over the holiday and we did some fun "awkward family photos" it's some of the most fun in front of the camera I've had in a while, haha!
    Anyway, seriously love these - if I had a family (with kids) I'd totally copy your idea...since I dont - can you send me a Christmas card too? :)

  15. i LOVE the pictures! so fun with the green chair and all. your dress is excellent. the kids are adorable.

    i used to get pictures out in time, but have rapidly gone downhill the last few years. last year, i ended up just putting one online and left it at that. HOPING to do better this year. :)
