Christmas Cards

Steele Family 1109

blog banner cropped&brushed

I have been at the computer all most ALL day! It’s now 12:40am and I am throwing in the towel. Seriously – you have got to know when to stop!

I couldn’t decide on the family picture or the pictures of just the girls. The family shot was taken on Thanksgiving, very informal, quick and painless for all (including all my brothers and family and me who was taking said photo's). The girls pictures I took today thinking I could mix the two. As you can see the colors don’t match and well……….this is why I have been at the computer all day and night.

Tom liked the family one so I am sending that out in the cards. The girls were too cute to push aside so I made them my new blog banner. We had fun today getting all gussied up and ready for the shoot. Amberly is such a good poser and Cassidy loves to come up with different photo ideas. She's the brains behind the lolly-pop and hot chocolate poses, clever girl! I took her on a shoot with me the other day and she was hilarious! Quite the budding photographer!

I’m giving up and going to bed. Let me know which one you like better. Obviously the blog banner has been “beautified” and the family one has been made into a card but you will have to wait till Christmas to see.

I love the girl's pictures too. Cass is very clever! But I agree with Tom, I love getting a picture of the whole family, we want to see you and Tom too! So you ended up with a win, win. Great new banner and darling Christmas cards! E-mail me if you need my new address.

I love them both! You are amazing. I think you found a wonderful compromise on how to utilize the two photos.
