Holiday Card Photo Shoot

At Thanksgiving, I asked my mom if she wouldn't mind taking a few photos for our holiday card that we'll be getting from Shutterfly. I knew that if I didn't get these ordered ASAP, I have no idea when I would be getting them out. Jeff HATES having his photo taken, so I begged for him to appease me for 15 minutes. I had to laugh with the outtakes, so I thought I'd share a few. 

Apparently, he's been watching a little too much football. He was trying to look like the Heisman Trophy.  


Was he close? 

This just cried Screech Powers to me. I look horrid. 

And the last one. For real. These are absolutely awful.

If you are still looking for holiday card ideas, I have 3 sets of 25 cards to give out. The first 3 people who leave me a comment can have them! You just pay shipping which was like $8. I'm a big fan of Shutterfly because they cards are nice thick card stock, and they look really nice. 

The good news is...we found a winner!! The toughest part was finding a card style that I loved. They had Erin Condren ones, but sadly, our image didn't work with the layouts. Boo and a Half. 

So, stay tuned, we'll share that photo soon. 

Anyone else have a problem child who doesn't cooperate for photos? Do you send out Christmas Cards? 

Maybe we should do a card swap!?? 

I'd love to see everyone's fun and creative cards!


  1. Could I get a link for a set? I signed up this year but it didn't go through :( and I want to possibly do one with a wedding photo.

  2. I ordered my cards last night! Sad because I could have used the free 25! Maybe I will just order more! ;) We took the photos while cutting down our tree yesterday. Hubby wasn't too thrilled with all the posing I made him do, but he cooperated.

    I vote yes for card swap.

  3. I would like to do a santa picture with jak possibly:)

  4. I would love the cards if you're still looking for a winner :)

  5. I took photos of the kiddos for our annual Christmas cards. I had the hardest time getting all three to cooperate. Ended up using one of the out takes because that's how are life is. Lol.
