I am SO excited about our Christmas cards this year! Shane and I have been wanting to send photo cards for years, but we just never got around to taking family pictures together to do that. Now that we have Leighton, it has been much easier to convince Shane to get family photos. We love being able to document our lives as a family by taking pictures that we can look back on forever. My very talented friend and photographer Emily with Emily B Photography took these pictures at the Arlington town square a few weeks ago. I wanted pops of red in our outfits, but I wanted to be sure to mix in other non-traditional Christmas colors like blue and black too. I love the way the pictures turned out, and they were perfect to use for our Minted Christmas cards.
