Oh Joy

happy friday + our newest family portrait...
16 Nov 2012


Last year, we had a little family portrait made by the talented Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. to use as our thank you cards and personal family stationery during the first few months of Ruby's new little life. I had one of the cards framed and decided we'd update our stationery every year to collect over time.


I recently framed our newest portrait, which we used as thank you cards for her first birthday, and I love how they now sit side-by-side showing the beginnings of our young family.


I remember I used to think family portraits were all about cheesy department store photos. But with the holidays upcoming, it's such a fun time to think about different ways to share a little representation your family. Here are a few others I'm loving...

Have a great weekend all!

P.S. Congrats to Jenna G. for being the winner of our Imm Living giveaway this time!
