These images are from Christmas. The next step took a while… so long that in fact… a Valentine’s Day card was created. Who cares!

The kids did such a good job. They posed so sweetly for me.

We also attempted to get a shot with their two dogs…maybe next year…ha ha ha…

So…a little late, but Happy Valentine’s Everyone!!!

Some more cards…

Yes, I use a lot of the same templates…designed by me…but I don’t just drop in a picture and leave it at that. Every card will be modified to fit the image it goes with or totally reworked. Often times I just create new ideas.

Have I mentioned before that I totally LOVE doing this? In case you’re wondering…I TOTALLY LOVE THIS!

The first, square ones, are designed to be printed as 5×5’s on watercolor paper. The rest as photographic prints.

Here are some ideas that I have been working on for Lucas.

So many cool images to pick from makes for many ideas when it comes to cards.

It’s all about having fun with it!

One of the things I just LOVE doing…is coming up with ideas for cards. Here are some of the ideas for this years Christmas card for one of my clients.

Enjoy!

I had the pleasure of making quite a few Christmas Cards this season. Here are a few. Enjoy! Also, wishing everyone a very merry Christmas and everything good for the new year. God Jul og Godt Nytt År!

Laura called me to come out and get some pictures of her kids. I had fun chasing the kids around. Gavin was as willing as Gunnar was not. Gunnar wanted to drive the ATV around instead. Forget doing pictures, this kid is a machine buff.  : ) We had fun and got a variety of fun images.  For their 4×8 Christmas card I did a variety of styles and Laura immediately went for the retro look. Thanks for the fun day!

This little princess was her mother’s favorite for the 5×7 folded watercolor card. It turned out beautifully!  Kenny herself came up with the wording, which I think is soooo sweet!

Here is the inside that folds down. Aren’t the kids just yummy!

Artsy feet. Too cute. I especially love how Pauley’s shorts look so short and Gabe’s shorts look soooo oversized. Let’s not overlook the baby chubs on Libby’s arms. Sweet!

A 4×8 card from one of this years weddings. Natasha’s favorite shots are all included. Even the horses in the background. Great memories from an amazing day!

My sister-in-law called me up, as usual  : ). “Hey, Kathrine, would it be any trouble to make a card for us?” Of course not! I love making cards and took the cute shot she emailed, enhanced it and made three different ideas. Both her kids and ours agreed on this design. This card is a 5×5 and as always metallic. I LOVE metallic!

The first time I met Heather and Abe and their kids I did pictures for little Theron. He’s not so little anymore and this time I got to photograph the whole family. First we went up to a cabin and did some shots by appletrees and tall weeds. What a blast! Later I went to their hose to do a couple of headshots. Young kids are always challenging, because you have about two minutes to get what you need…then the’re DONE!  : ) Big brother Joey and Theron were awesome and I had a hard time putting my camera down. Thanks for playing with me! This is the front to their 5×7 folded watercolor card. The blue turned out just as bright and blue as I had imagined. The icy blue is Heather’s favorite color as well. Cool!

Here is the inside. I just love the wording Heather added. Gotta love those toes!

What a sweeeeet moment with the boys! I have to do something artsy with this shot later. It is just too cute!!!

This is our card this year. I wanted a little space to add a personal message to each and every one. Usually I add a letter with updates from the past year, but this year I just didn’t have, or take, the time. There’s always next year! I enjoy getting them, so I’ll do my best.

…and the backside.

Finally!!! Every year, the same thing…our Christmas card is always the last to get done, and always a last minute thing. Earlier this fall, before the school pictures, I was ready…but the kids were just not in the mood for pictures…and here we are, it’s almost Christmas.

Then, yesterday I lucked out! I spent about one minute on each of the girls and Jakob sat for about two minutes. Of course B-Cat had to be included, but anything to get the kid to sit still, right?!!! I got lucky. He even wore his pink party shirt. His cousin, Theodor, in Norway has one just like it. He’s not quite sure about the pink, but I keep telling him that with the BIG numbers on the back it is the coolest shirt. 

Here are some of the shots I got and I will post our Christmas card soon. I would have loved to do a group shot of the three, but it just wasn’t going to happen. These pictures will also be used as their school photos for trading. The generic Herff stuff doesn’t do anything for me.

A sweet moment of my little “baby”. With best buddy, B-Cat.

My precious Maria.

Yes! There was a cat involved here as well. Max. Somehow he didn’t get included in any of the shots.

Having new BIG teeth is always funny. And scratches in her face from the day before.

No cat. Miss Ada was outside.

Stine is absolutely growing into her BIG front teeth…and growing up waaaay too fast! I think she will be an actress or a singer some day. She is so talented!
