To answer the most popular questions: yes, Jon is holding the gifts, this is on Park Avenue and it is three pictures Photoshopped together. Our most complex post-production card to date.
The gifts were empty boxes I had around the apartment that I wrapped with paper from the dollar store. I then used packing tape to tape the boxes to each other so they wouldn’t topple over when Jon was holding them.
We originally wanted this to be two photos that were photoshopped together (Jon and Brady, Adelaide and me), but after we were done decided it was best to combine three different shots. More on that in a bit.
I love this picture of Brady, Kristin and Brian howling at a siren that was going by. We shot their Christmas card minutes before for them to announce their pregnancy and then they stuck around to help us with our card. Check out their card here.
And now, for how it came together (also known as, my husband has mad skills):
Shot 1: Jon and the gifts
Shot 2: Adelaide and me
The final product:
It just makes me even more excited for Adelaide to get to be a part of our traditions, and to add in her ideas in the future.
Sky’s the limit.
