So every year I photograph so many beautiful and fun families. Capturing these beautiful memories each years is one of my favorite parts of being a photographer. Especially when I capture the same families year after year. My hope for every session is always to tell the story of their family from the little details of their shoes to the way their little ones hug and cuddle on them with their short baby arms. But I do recognize that with each family session the time always comes to choose one or a few to go on the yearly Christmas card. Whether you are an all smiling at the camera type family or you want to use something emotional or silly for the card this year, you still are left trying to choose.
I find myself in the same boat every year and I take so many photos throughout that it takes me hours to decide and I almost always go with the 6 or more photo card, because I can be crazy indecisive. But I actually love getting and giving Christmas cards. I love being able to stay up to date with friends and family close and far. But not all Christmas card places are the same and I think printing photographs even as cards means choosing a quality place to print. I also think there are so many out their to choose from that we often stick with what we know. But while making my cards this year I did some research and was shocked at how many beautiful designs are out there. So many websites with deals to take advantage of and adorable styles to really set your Christmas cards apart. A few of these sites I've used in the past while others just look so well done I can't wait to use them in the future. I'll list them below with my own little reasons for loving their styles!
I was blown away by their designs this year. So many options for photo centric Christmas cards. They are fun and stylish and I actually decided to go with them this year. I've used their printing before and I just can't say enough about the quality you get!
I love this website, so many hip and stylish things to print. They also have so many great Holiday card designs this year. As I'm sure you can tell I love that minimalist style and they are definitely the best at it!
They have so many bold designs that I love. Especially if you've worked with me for photography because the bold designs with bold color are just a perfect combination.
So many good deals while still getting stylish and fun designs. If your looking for a more budget friendly option I really think they are a great middle ground because they still have some minimalist and beautiful designs.
Like I said before, Christmas cards are really one of my favorite things. I love being able to choose the style and show off photos from our year. I also think doing to research for cool designs and cards takes time so hopefully putting them all in one place could be helpful. Especially if you're like me and are just getting to Christmas Cards this week. At least its not December yet :P
