Season's Greetings!

30 comments
Hello everyone!
This past weekend my sister and I got all fancied up so we could take some pictures for our family Christmas card! In years past we've always gone to a studio and had them taken, but finally we've grown smart enough to realize home taken ones are just as lovely! I wore my red Forever21 sweetheart dress I originally was going to wear to my school's winter formal dance which, like I predicted, got cancelled. I'll also be wearing this dress for Christmas, as well! I quite liked how these pictures turned out... I think they have so much more of a warm, family, love, feeling than studio pictures do. And come on...isn't my sister just too cute!?

It makes me absolutely so sad though because hardly anyone sends Christmas cards out anymore...we used to have a whole door filled with them and we've only gotten five so far! Guess I'm just stuck in the past (like always).

Hope you all are doing lovely!
With much love, Lauren.

I realize this word is overused, Lauren, but I can't think of any other. "Stunning," both of you!

Aaaww! So Christmassy! I love how you have the stockings AND the fireplace AND the tree. My family don't really go all out for Christmas. You guys look so happy :)

You two look soooo cute, and wow, Lauren, you look stunning. Your accessories, hairdo, everything works so well!

It is sad that no one is really sending out Christmas cards anymore. I mean, our family stopped too (a LONG LONG LONG time ago), but I always loved getting pictures taken just for the occasion.

Ya'll both look so sweet. I love both of your dresses. I'm sorry your dance got canceled; the one at our school got canceled too! Yikes! But, I love your dress, at least you get a chance to wear it right?

That's true. We haven't gotten as many Christmas cards this year either. It's kind of strange...
You two look so pretty in your Christmas card pictures!

You guys both look very lovely, I love these cute photos! :) And not only your dress is stunning, your necklace is also really a killer piece.. I love recieving Christmas cards as well, especially the homemade ones that gives you the feeling that someone really thought especially about you :)

WOw, Miss Lauren, you look like a goddess!!! Your sister is such a little cutie! That's a great dress and yeah, it IS a LOT nicer to do your own photos when you can! I've been doing my own for a few years now and it's saved a pretty good amount of moolah! Well, best of holidays to you my dear! Take care and be well and always keep your smile on! :-)

Adorable photos, you girls both look so pretty!

xoxo mama wolf.

Liz said...

Aww! You look beautiful, and your sister looks flat out adorable. She's a little cutie :3

Anyways that's a great dress, who knew that Forever21 and home photography = magazine-worthy Christmas card photos? I've decided to take my own photos this year and send out cards as well!

You both look beautiful! I have to admit that I haven't sent Christmas cards for a few years but I think that I will when I am not travelling over Christmas time.

The Pfeiffer girls are a pair of stunners! You look gorgeous here! Gracie is so sweet! How's her piano lessons going? I did write you a letter, but I've misplaced it (along with several other people's) when I find it, I will try to send it!!

The Midwest Muse said...

These are beautiful. Your dress is lovely and looks great with that hair style. My brother and his family always have me (or my boyfriend) take their family photos and they are so much better than any studio ones ever could turn out. Way more personal. And you're right, usually my parents get around 100 and this year we have maybe ten? Maybe people forgot?

SO ADORABLE! And everything from your dress to your makeup looks amazing!

I love your sister's outfit!!! you both look so pretty.
