Christmas Card Photoshoot

Who knew that poster board and sharpies could make such awesome Christmas fun! Pete and I wanted to create a postcard like feel with our Christmas card so we planned out a trip to the top of Queen Ann hill with the water and the needle behind us. December in Seattle can be a volatile time for an outside photo shoot but we were blessed with some sunshine and even a little sunset. We had decided beforehand that we would do it regardless of the weather but I for one was glad that it was not a rainy day seasons greeting. The sign idea turned out to have so many creative uses.. more than I even though at first. It was a crowded day up at Kerry Park where we took the pictures and we were making the people around us laugh as we ran around trying out new sign poses. We got a lot of compliments on the idea and I wonder if I will be seeing more people making signs for next year. I sure hope so!
