One of my favorite part of the holiday season is creating a Christmas card, and of course, receiving cards from from friends and loved ones.
When I think of what makes a card-worthy photo, I think of one that really expresses who we are as a family. This year, I chose one of Shutterfly’s cards that is two-sided, so I could include some of my favorite IG snapshots on the back.
A family portrait session doesn’t always bring out the best in my five, two and one year-old… maybe that’s just my kids? I love the sweet moments that I can capture with my phone and preserve with Instagram. So often those little glimpses provide better insight into life in the Bennett family, and that’s what I want to send to our friends and family.
Have you made your Christmas cards yet?

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege to get together with some local blogger friends for a delicious dinner and a chance to chat about the goodies that Shutterfly has to offer. We enjoyed looking at sample photo cards, and photo books brought in showcasing our own cute kids– even our waitress was intrigued by the photo mugs that my friend Jessica brought along.
Shutterfly has a new website this year all about family photos, including tips on taking/choosing a card-worthy photo and making the most of your family photo day. And I can’t recommend their products enough. I just got my 2012 cards in the mail and I just love them!

This quick qiveaway ends Monday night, December 10th. Good luck!
Thanks Shutterfly and Jessica for such a fun girl’s night out!
