Our Holiday Card Photoshoot

So I did something a few weeks ago that I have been thinking about doing for years- I took photos for my Christmas cards. I get tons of great photo cards every year from my friends of their families, so I know that is not a big deal for most people. But this year I decided that I would send my first Christmas photo card with a photo of me and Maxwell, my 3yr old Ragdoll. I have been wanting to do this for years, but I didn't know of a good photographer in Atlanta with a lot of patience who would be able to capture a good photo of me and a squirmy cat. And I have never seen a Christmas card with a photo of a single girl with her pet, so I didn't know what people would think. But Max is like my family away from home, so who cares??

Earlier this year, I did find a fabulous photographer who captured some great photos of Max. Her name is Dana Eason of Dana Eason Photography. She specializes in family lifestyle photography. She is also going to start shooting weddings in January of 2011. She is extremely talented and patient! I think her photos speak for themselves...












So of course I asked her to take my Christmas card photos! It was really hard to keep Max still and engaged, but Dana was able to get some great shots in all of about 10 seconds...







I took the advice of Paula at Two Ellie and kept the photo neat and simple. We took the photos in my living room on my cream Cooper Chair from Bassett. I draped a crimson chenille throw from Restoration Hardware over the back of the chair to add some color. By the way, I LOVE that throw. It literally weighs about 5 pounds, so it keeps you really warm. They make great Christmas gifts. AND they are currently on sale! 

I saw several photo cards by Minted, Shutterfly, and Hallmark that I liked. But this card by Tiny Prints was my favorite. It is the card that went out to all of my friends and family and I am so excited to share it with you. Peace and Love!
