I don't like to spend a fortune on Christmas cards... so that means photo shoots in our back yard, taken on our smart phones and coupon codes for online ordering! We used Jon's brand new Samsung Note to take the pics and I can't stop raving about the quality of photos that came from it. When we picked out the photos that will actually be used on the card, I then edited them with a free app I have on my phone. Next I picked a gorgeous card from Tiny Prints because I had a coupon code for 30% off and free shipping. I can't wait to show you the final product in a few weeks after we send out the cards to friends and family! But in the mean time here are some of our outtakes. These photos are not edited, cropped, etc.
I can't even begin to tell you how hard it was to get my pets to cooperate. Throw a bow tie and some sweaters and scarves on them and they loose it. Despite that, I think we actually managed to get a pretty decent card out of it. You don't always have to spend tons of money on getting professional photos done and I hope that my Christmas card proves that... stay tuned :)
