Photographing Your Children ~ Holiday Edition

Have you missed me each Tuesday and Wednesday?

Did you notice that post about photographing your children for the annual holiday greeting card never posted?

My apologies. A chronic illness and medication side effects have put me a little out of whack (my family would say that’s putting it mildly). Anissa and Tiff are covering for me this month (thank you, sweetly), and I’ll be back on schedule for December.

Hoping to inspire you to get moving on those holiday photo cards, here are some of my favorite links on the subject…

My talented photographer friend, Tracey (founder of Shutter Sisters), has an excellent series going to help you shutter-button-happy parents capture, design, print or order your holiday photo cards this season…Great Greetings. Hints, instruction and creative food for thought abound.

And be sure to check out the Great Greetings Flickr pool for a plethora of visual inspiration.

Shutterfly has excellent tips for family photo shoots and a stash of fun and traditional greeting cards from which to choose. Just click through to browse, make your choice and add photo(s).

Snapfish offers creative and affordable options for creating a personalized card by uploading your photo(s), choosing your design, add photo and click to order.

Tiny Prints offers delightful holiday cards and you can even shop by color or theme. This holiday season, you can also share your family news, send an annual update and personal photos with their newest unique story cards.
