christmas card 2016.

i have been dying to share our Christmas card photos with you ever since i received them back! this is one of those shoots that i had a very specific vision for and they came out exactly as i hoped! we took these photos atop Hawk Hill on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. i hoped & prayed for good weather and no fog for weeks leading up to the shoot! i wanted to send a very San Francisco Christmas card for our first year here in The City and the finished product is perfect.

this is our first year working with Minted to create our cards! previously, we would do a shoot and then robbie would design our Christmas cards {see here, here, & here}, but i couldn’t be more happy with how they turned out this year! the rose gold foil was the extra pop the card needed to really bring out my sequin dress. i kept the text simple and let the glam do all the talking! Minted also addresses envelopes for free, which is amazing! i also ordered return address labels, so i only had to stuff the envelopes and stick on the stamps. it took me all of about a half hour to get our cards out this year!

Minted also makes incredible pinboards that you can custom design with your own desired size, fabric selection, and frame! i personalized mine {rose gold of course} for the holidays and included memories from past Christmas seasons on them. i’m that person that saves ticket stubs and polaroids as memories, so this was such a great way to bring them out of my special memories box and put them on display.

we are off to Vegas tomorrow to spend the full week leading up to Christmas with my family. we are so excited to be with loved ones and really take in the true meaning of the season. stay tuned for more holiday outfits and content later this week! xxminted-christmas-1-of-11_mg_5512 img_3249minted-christmas-10-of-11 img_3264 img_3465b img_3242minted-christmas-4-of-11 img_3496 img_3336 img_8188minted-christmas-3-of-11 _mg_5532 img_3489 img_3331minted-christmas-9-of-11 img_3408 img_3499 img_3214minted-christmas-11-of-11b img_3442minted-christmas-7-of-11 img_3255 img_3301 img_3444 _mg_5510minted-christmas-2-of-11 img_3254 img_3505 img_3349minted-christmas-6-of-11 img_3398 _mg_5495minted-christmas-8-of-11 img_3412 img_3181 img_3510 img_3358minted-christmas-5-of-11bimg_3431 img_3359 _mg_5518 img_3380 img_3441minted-christmas-3-of-11 img_3516 img_3364 img_3430 img_3207 img_3511 img_3262 img_3415champagne sequin dress
