We did our portraits this year with Kristin Rogers again. She’s a local photographer that I’ve long admired for her slice-of-life instagram account (and she is also an adoptive mom.)

We went back to the same hilltop spot we go every year and found that it had been razed to accommodate for a new housing community! So we ended up finding another spot on the fly. A few more buildings in the background than in previous years but I’m still so happy with how they came out.

Tea Collection provided the kid’s clothes for this shoot. The process is always a little stressful and on this particular day, my kids were more interested in collecting twigs and playing in the dirt than smiling for photos, but somehow we managed to get some of everyone looking at the camera!

We ordered our cards through Minted again, and this time I used their free address printing service. Total game-changer! It was so easy not to have to print and affix labels, and the printing looked really professional.
