As you know, holiday portrait and Christmas card season is upon us. If you're like me, you're trying to plan outfits and a good opportunity for a perfect family portrait.
I am excited today to share with you about Shutterfly's 2011 holiday cards collection. I ordered Shutterfly Christmas photo cards for the first time last year, and I was very pleased with the quality and design.
The thing I love most about Shutterfly greeting cards is that it is easy to find a card with the exact specifications you need. You can sort by style, theme, number of photos, format (flat or folded), card size, color, price, paper type, and even designer. To find my favorite card this year, I looked for flat cards with 3-4 pictures in red tones, then I found my favorites under "whimsy."
This year, I've noticed a lot of friends getting outdoor, casual portraits professionally taken. So my plan is try to do some of our own over Thanksgiving (taken by an obliging family member in my parents' yard!). I think I can coordinate red and black outfits on all of us, so here is the card I've picked, Charming and Lovely:
Isn't that cute? I love the whimsical design. Now, if we only end up with enough good pictures to fill it! However, all I need is one good one. If I only get that, I chose Charming Noel as a backup card:
