When the holidays come around, do you ever find your thoughts turning to those cherished family members and loved ones who you maybe weren’t able to see quite as often as you’d like? I know that I do, and I think that probably everyone does, from time to time. So when I open up an envelope postmarked from distant friends and family and I discover these beautiful and personal keepsakes inside, it never fails to bring a smile to my face. There’s still something magical about opening up *real* mail. That’s why holiday cards are such an endearing treasure to me, and why I can’t wait to share them with others.As you view the beautiful portrait holiday cards, do you ever wonder where they come up with these great photo ideas for their cards?

Would you like to photograph just your immediate family or might you include others such as grandmother? Don’t forget that Evin can take a variety of combinations during your portrait session and you can have multiple photos on your holiday cards • Evin loves including your four legged family members in the photos too! Or you could do holiday cards featuring just your beloved pet (really it’s all about them anyways) All pets welcome; dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, we’ve even had apes, a liger, alligators and a hedgehog here in our studio! • Do you want outdoor portraits at the park or beach, in-studio photos or portraits at your home? • Do you prefer a more traditional look with semi-formal or dressy casual attire and a canvas backdrop or in front of your fireplace? Or is your style contemporary with clean simple lines, possibly set against crisp white background or in front of your favorite art piece? Whatever your style, whether whimsical, contemporary or traditional, let Evin Thayer Studios help create your unique holiday portrait cards this year that reflect your personality and give your friends and family a truly memorable gift!
