Let me tell you a story about stale waffles and a chaotic Monday morning…
We decided to have family photos taken by a professional this year. I reached out to a friend from church who is an amazing photographer, and he suggested doing a lifestyle family shoot in our home. The pictures turned out amazing, and I am anxious to frame all of them! But, my idea to have a family breakfast in the photos went a little sideways.
See, I made these gluten free waffles for us to have while eating “breakfast” around the table. As a family, we eat mostly homemade meals together at home, so I figured this would be a meaningful event to photograph. But it turns out that the waffle mix I used was quite terrible, and we could barely eat them! Brian, the photographer, still made us – and the food – look good. Even though the waffles were a bust, and convincing two little boys to cooperate was a challenge, we love the pictures! So much so, that I was eager to use them in our Christmas cards.
Here is a sneak peek of our holiday card this year:
One of my absolute favorite things during the holidays is opening the mail. I love receiving Christmas cards from friends and family! We have a chalkboard wall leading into our kitchen and it is slowly becoming covered with all of those beautiful cards. I was originally going to skip sending out our own cards this year, but I am so happy that I changed my plan! I have used TinyPrints in the past, and was excited to design our cards through them again. They have a wide selection of beautiful Christmas cards, the process is simple, and the cards were shipped quickly. It’s not too late to order!
I am confident that capturing these photos was worth all of the chaos and bites of stale waffles! I know they will be treasured for years to come.
Thank you to Brian Schindler for putting up with our crazy and for beautifully capturing our family moments.
