the christmas card.

family photo shoots, can be a pain, especially with a terrorizing 2-year old obsessed with woody. well, i am so smart that I decided to take my family, including the above mentioned 2 - year old out to the desert on a windy, cold day in las vegas with my newly recovered vintage sofa. let's just say i was asking for it.

my wonderful and patient friend amy leavitt was willing to join in on the chaos and take our photos, so i could be in it. I feel like I owe her a life time of yogurtland and pedicures after my crazy family occupied an hour of her time.

Surprisingly enough, we got a good Christmas card out of it and basically captured what I was going for, but let me just give you a few behind the scenes, of how we got there.

Here is the Christmas Card:





and here was more of the reality behind the scenes....
