This year, since my favorite family photographer moved to Denver, I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to get a great shot of the kids, Trent and I for a holiday card. We can be (ahem) a bit difficult to work with, and I knew the stress of it all wouldn’t be worth it this year. I was browsing the all knowing Internet for a solution, when I found the awesome Etsy Shop, Local Honey. The artist, Kelly Christine, is a photographer from Texas who moonlights as a pretty fantastic illustrator. She will take photos of your family and draw a custom portrait just for you! I contacted her about wanting to do an illustration for our holiday card and she was totally on board. Didn’t it turn out adorable?! I love it so much and have the original hanging in our home.

On the back side I used a few Instagram images I love, Tate riding in the wagon at the farm, Trent and I in New York City and Lucy at soccer. I wrote a little note detailing our year (which pretty much everyone knows already due to this here blog) and thanking our friends and family for being so amazing. We used Minted this year for our cards (read more about why here) and I love the quality.
Warmest Wishes, from the Crazybananas Crew!
