Christmas Postcards



It took me awhile to get this shot for our Christmas cards this year! Photographing a toddler is certainly it's own art form.

I'm planning on turning these into postcards using a technique similar to this. The plus to creating your own postcards is that they are cheaper than ordering them online and you can ship them for just a postcard stamp if you choose. The only change I'm making this time, is that the photos that I ordered have print stamped on the back of them, so I am pasting a pre-printed note to the back to cover up the ugliness! I'd better get to work on this so they arrive on time!

What a great pic! Your photography skills are excellent.

Thanks all! Actually the picture is just "ok" because of the lighting issues but changing it to black and white helped a lot. Picasa is so great for such things!

Jamie,

I think that photo looks great! Nathan's not even looking at the camera in our card pic. =)
