I'm an American expat, writer. photographer. and old-fashioned romantic in love with celebrating the simple joys of daily life. I appreciate timelessness, the natural world, and a slow life lived with simplicity and intention. When I'm not photographing families or  slowly traveling the world and writing about it in a little notebook, I'm happily grounding myself in nature and cozying up with my sweet husband.

Where to print your family Christmas holiday cards online with discounts

This year Alex and I decided to begin a new Christmas tradition as a family: print our holiday cards using our photos from our yearly family portrait session. 

Printing family holiday cards is something I deeply believe in. It may seem like such a small, superficial thing to many but to me it symbolizes our family unit. Our family holiday card stands for something greater. It is part of our yearly legacy.

Memories, moments of our lives documented in photographs, printed in frames and on cards…it is why we hire a photographer every year. Because these moments of our lives, our love for one another deserves to be printed on quality paper and deserves to be looked at…..every.single.day. 

I refuse to let my memories collect dust in the bottom of a cardboard box and let my most joyful moments live on a hard drive. 

I Value Art and Printed Memories

I find immense value in tangible art. I’m that girl that will spend a lot of money on a handpainted work of art, a finished watercolor canvas, a gigantic coffee table book of Agnes Martin’s art. I’m that person that books a photo session every year with a photographer and I highly value the fine art of portrait photography.

I spend my earned dollars on printed cards and custom albums and quality wooden frames and photography prints and photo sessions with amazing photographers because it is what I value most: cherished life memories with my family and art. 

Our 2019 Family Christmas Card

Our family and friends have all received our holiday cards in the mail this Christmas, so I thought I’d share a little peek at our cards this year!!

Since we live in France, we opted to go with Minted.com this as they ship out to Europe.

Using Past Printed Family Holiday Cards as Home Decor

We plan to keep a card from each year for ourselves and frame them all together in a big frame as our family grows over the years. It’s a fun and reflective home decor idea to hang your holiday memories through the years.
