Looking Back....The Long Family Holiday Card Through The Years

Yep- it's our thing, it may be strange, but we do it as a family and look forward to it ALL.YEAR.LONG!!!!  What started out as a fun way to be creative for this stay at home mom, is really what led me to my dream job of being a photographer.  After leaving my teaching job to be a stay at home mom, I really yearned for some creative outlet.  I found it within photoshop and creating fun holiday and birthday cards for my children.  This quickly led me to photography, where I fell in love with an art that has filled a side of myself with such joy and happiness- that I feel so incredibly thankful to have found! So, I thought it would be fun for those that may not have had the opportunity to see our holiday cards through the years to get a peek at the FUN we have had!

 

If you can't laugh at yourself- who can you laugh at?

 

2009 "The Package" ... where it all started!
