I can’t believe this year is almost over. It was a great year, photographing new families (and new beginnings) as well as old friends. I’m very thankful for your trust in having me capture these important moments in your life. I am also grateful to my family for supporting me and encouraging me to do something that I love doing. Last year we started a new tradition of creating a stylized holiday card. You can see last’s year one here. I really love the idea since I’m normally not in the pictures and this allows me to create memories for my family as well … while making it fun.
The final card was a composite of four images. One of my boys, individually, one of myself and my gorgeous wife and one for the background. I had some fake snowflakes that we used for some of the pictures and then add it digitally for the boys (you can see one without the snow and one with the snow).
Here is a little tip if you want to do one for yourself: take a separate background picture and make sure you take two versions. One in focus and one slightly out of focus. I ended up using a combination of the two to add depth to the image.
And here is the final version. If you are one of our friends/clients, you should have received one in the mail. If you didn’t, it means that you moved and we don’t have your current address. We love keeping in contact with you and if you do as well, just email us your new address.
I hope you will have a healthy, prosperous and happy New Year!
