Holiday cards – are you sending out holiday cards this season?

Making Memories last

One of my most favorite things to do is take photographs of my family.  The holidays come so fast each year and sending a family picture of your loved ones connects us to others that live far away. Everyone is so busy this time of year; sending holiday cards is one way to reflect and reconnect with those special family and friends. The holiday card is really more than a photograph, it is a keepsake.  Will your family being sending a holiday card this year? Here are some helpful tips for making your card stand out:

  • Make it humorous
  • Make it personal
  • Showcase your pets  –  dogs, cats, fish, guinea pigs…
  • Add personality to your holiday card
  • Host a family sports photo day; wear your favorite Team colors
  • Choose a special photo from your summer vacation – to debut on your holiday card
  • Perhaps you had a family wedding, choose a shot from the wedding reception to showcase on your cards
  • Be nostalgic
  • Be whimsical
  • Save time and add your names on the card before they go to print

This was our Holiday Card from 2007 – one of my all time favorite.  We were in our backyard, the boys were home from school.  The beloved pet was fresh from the groomers…and the only thing I would have changed was my youngest son holding a glass of something? So – making memories is actually connecting with others, reflecting on your life and sharing your love with those that love you.
