I had to show this design too even though, a little more pricey. Just fell in love with the barn door…

How to Dress Your Family for Your Holiday Card Photo by Kristin Eldridge

see more by

I know it might seem early, but if you like to hire a professional photographer to take your holiday card photo, now is the time to book your session as they get booked up fast and the holidays will be here before we know it.  One of my absolute favorite OC family photographers, Kristin Eldridge (who is taking our family photo on Sunday!) wrote us a guest post on something I always struggle with – WHAT DO WE WEAR?! Planning the family ensemble for a photo can be confusing. Here are tips Kristin wrote on how to dress your family for your holiday photo card so that most importantly, you all look like YOU!

How to Dress Your Family for Your Holiday Card Photo
by Kristin Eldridge of Kristin Eldridge Photography

“So, you’ve secured a date with your favorite photographer. The location is set and all of a sudden you wonder WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR!?!

Before the panic settles in, break it down. You don’t have to go on a major shopping spree or dress everyone in white t-shirts and jeans.

Follow this simple formula to create a thoughtful look for your photos without looking too matchy-matchy.

First, choose two main colors.

In the example above, I chose red and blue. Each member of the family will wear something with either blue, red or a neutral. Black, gray, white, khaki, denim…those all qualify as neutrals.

Second, add accessories. Here’s where it breaks away from the matchy-matchy. Instead of buying every red and blue piece Gymboree sells, try to use pieces you already own and tie in the look with belts, hair accessories or trims.

Don’t be afraid of prints…they can help to liven up a photo!

Most importantly, wear things that look like YOU. A photo is documented forever, so you want to look back and remember the life you lived in 2011. Wearing something too formal or too casual will just make you feel like you weren’t your true self. And when you feel good, you look good!”

To look at Kristin’s amazing work and get more information, you can visit her website or blog. Kristin also has a few OC mini holiday sessions coming up (but they book fast!) You can call (562)980-6480 or email info@kristineldridge.com to book your session!

Minted Holiday Cards & Giveaway!

For those of you who have been reading my blog, you know how much I love holiday photo cards. It’s a tiny obsession.

I get a rush when I get the mail in December. I quickly throw aside anything that is not a holiday card, then I sit with my stack of photo cards and open and appreciate each one and then carefully display them so I can see them all throughout the entire month.

I vividly remember a very unique, lovely design last from one of our friends so I quickly turned it over to see which company made such such a super cute card and found Minted.  Seriously, oh my holiday cuteness! I could hardly stand it!

AND Minted has offered me a $100 gift card to give away to one of my readers for your holiday photo cards or Christmas photo cards this year!! Read below and enter!

A few things I personally love about the designs.  They are really unique and different from things you have seen before.  That is because they do design challenges, where graphic designers from around the world submit entries and the Minted fans decide which designs to sell.  How cool is that?

They also have FUN features I have to point out.  You can opt on some designs to include a photo on the back along with a printed, personalized holiday greeting which can include a paragraph or two on some highlights from your year! So cute!

They also have something fun called the “Yearline” on some designs where you can include different photos on the back highlighting some family milestones.

And being a stationery buff, I love that the fact their Signature paper is printed on 130-lb textured matte paper and they also offer a thick 100% Recycled paper option.

One click and you will be in love!

Now that you have fallen, they currently have a Minted Coupon Discount Code of AFHOL20 for 20% off your holiday card order, but I would hurry and order as I don’t know how long it will last!

Hooray!  It’s a Tiny Giveaway!

Minted is giving away one $100 Minted credit valid on any Minted holiday card order! Woo hoo!  Contest runs through Wednesday, November 24th, 2010 at 5pm PST.  Make sure to leave your email address in your comment so I can email you if you are the lucky winner!  Please leave a separate comment for each entry option:
