Holiday Greetings

Recently we had the privilege of photographing Scott Pilgrim, one of the awesome DJ's with Jumping Jukebox, and his wonderful family at a place that's near and dear to their hearts...Death Valley! They have three beautiful children, and one practically adopted boyfriend, and they were all so much fun! They wanted to have a nice holiday card to send family and friends that was less "Christmas" and more "We bleed orange". Check out the card we designed as well as some of our favorites from the shoot.

The boys being boys!

Here is the front (on the left) and the inside flap.

The awesome pano inside along with a clever saying that Marti came up with.

The back side.

To the Pilgrim Family,

We had an amazing time with all of you. Thank you for entrusting us with your family memories. We look forward to doing the same next year when Andrea graduates :)

With Christmas being just two short weeks away, most of us are already starting our holiday traditions. Buying the first carton of eggnog, putting up the tree, decorating the outside of the house...and it makes me remember how I spent Christmas as a kid. Curtis and I had very different holiday traditions. He was a Christmas Eve present-opener, whereas I believed in Santa and set out cookies and milk (and a carrot for the reindeer of course) before bed.

This year, we'll be celebrating in a way that we have only done once before. The year that we got married, we flew to England to spend Christmas with my sister, who has lived there for several years. This year we're crossing the Atlantic again and spending the holidays with her. We're so excited to get our holiday cheer on...British STYLE! On Christmas day we'll wear colorful, paper crowns and open crackers to see what lame toy is inside. Will it be a mini screw-driver or perhaps a plastic army man this year?

As we will be out of the country, Kismet Photography will be closed from December 15th-December 31st. We will have very limited access to email and needless to say, with the ridiculous roaming charges, we will not be checking voice mail much either. We will be enjoying this time with our family, and thank you for your patience (in advance) for the delay in email and phone replies.

Happy Holidays!

Curtis & Emily
