family photos // christmas card

tay + i thought it was kind of dumb to do christmas cards for just the two of us,
so the last two christmas' we have spent together we haven't sent out cards.
but now that our family of two has doubled to a family of four, we figured it was due time!
i entered a mini photo session giveaway from talented elise
from And Elise Photo & Film on insta and we won!
(i never win anything so this was a big deal!)

i can't tell you how many outfit options i went through.
it was ridiculous.
but we made it, and i'm so happy with out they turned out.
now which one to use for christmas cards... (seriously though, any input would be amazing)
