Our 2019 Christmas cards + mini session

24 December 2019

Happy Christmas Eve, friends! I wanted to pop in quickly to share our 2019 Christmas cards and a few more favorites from our fall mini session with Anagram Photo. Sending and receiving holiday cards is one of my very favorite Christmas traditions, and I always love sharing them with you, too!

Our card, as always, is from Minted. I looked at many different options, but loved this super simple one in the end. Minted’s thick paper makes it feel extra-special, too!

On the back of the Minted card, we printed a few extra photos and a favorite verse. This is also where I wrote a little note to each friend or family member!

Into the envelope we also slipped our yearly infographic. I forgot to take a picture, but here’s a peek! We have these printed separately at UPrinting. Shep’s little narrative cracks me up :)

And now, a few more favorites from our mini session with Graham. We have trusted him to capture some of our most precious memories as a family, and these photos are no different! This is the first time we’ve ever done a session specifically timed for Christmas cards, and I think I’m in love :)

Friends, I am sending you all lots of love and wishes for a cozy Christmas filled with sacred moments, delicious food, comfy pajamas, and laughing until your cheeks hurt with the ones you love. I will see you back here next week for my year in review – one of my favorite posts of the year!

Minted graciously gifted us our cards this year — so glad I can share them with you!

Obviously, I LOVE the picture of the kiddos mid-hug, but I think those snuggly photos of you and John at the end are my favorites!! So beautiful. Your card is always a favorite to find in the mail! xoxoxo

These photos are all so beautiful! It had to of been hard to pick favorites especially for your holiday card (which we loved so much)! Hope Christmas was sweet to you, Thomas family. We love you!

Hi Emily! I love your Christmas card posts every year – and have created our own family newsletter using yours as inspiration! The past 2 years we have been printing our newsletter at home – but I would like to send them out to be printed this year! When you purchase them from UPrinting what “product” are you selecting to upload your design to? Thanks so much for your help! Looking forward to your 2020 cards!
