Carolyn Allen and Emily Pullen designs

We have two sweet friends here in Citrus County that are incredibly talented.  Carolyn Allen is able to capture our sweet family so naturally in photos.  She has an eye for snapping pictures and did a beautiful job on HG's newborn photos and our Christmas photos.  Emily Pullen is able to make anything beautiful.  She designed our birth announcements and Christmas card and I have some of her prints around our home.

Carolyn and Emily joined their talents to create Christmas cards this year.  I was thrilled!  Nothing is worse than trying to take the "right" picture for your card that everyone will see and post on their fridge for the entire month of December.  Marty is the least patient person when it comes to taking pictures, and to have Carolyn take our pictures was the biggest gift ever!  Not only did she get one good shot for the card, yet we have so many beautiful pictures we could fill a complete gallery wall in our home from this single 30 min shoot.  Here are some of our favorites:

I love sending and receiving Christmas cards, it makes checking the mail in December so much fun!  Here is the sweet card Emily designed for us.  She even included our new address, so we didn't have to send out "We've Moved" cards.  I removed the address, so it looks a little strange on the back, but she did a wonderful job!  Emily has an Etsy shop, click here to see her work.  

 I put our card in some frames to enjoy throughout the Christmas season.  I think it will be fun to get it out next year and see how much HG has grown and changed!
