Christmas Card Photos 2019

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!

 Today on the blog I am sharing our Christmas photo session with the amazing Jaelynn Rose Photography. We were out of town for Thanksgiving with my family in Michigan and she was able to meet up with us while we were home to snap a few photos for our Christmas cards.


From start to finish of our session, Jaelynn was such a joy to work with. It was the perfect overcast day for photos, but a little chilly. She was able to work with Griff’s cranky attitude and get some great shots of our family.







Thank you so much, Jaelynn! And if you’re in Michigan and looking for someone to take photos of a special event in your life, check out her website here and Instagram.
