The Annual Family Pictures (and a #Giveaway)

I was given a canvas from Signazon to review, but I did not receive compensation and all opinions are 100% my own. I promise you don’t want to miss the giveaway at the bottom, or some family pictures that I think are pretty darn cute.

This year, I didn’t have the time, energy, or mega-bucks to spend on a family photo session. But, I love getting a good shot of our whole family (and at least one of all of the kids together).

So, on a Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago, in a comical display of stubbornness, I set up my camera on a big cardboard box from the garage, and we all stood out in the field behind our house while I ran back and forth to hit the button and get back in place before the time was up. I was “allowed” to take five pictures of all of us, by my husband, who insisted that after five, he’d no longer have a smile for the camera. I took six. I don’t think they’re half bad.

My friend Sarah was kind enough to do some editing on the the family shots to make them look, you know…more professional.

I’m also maybe turning into crazy picture lady, because our living room walls are basically covered. Most of them are canvases, which I LOVE. This time around I ordered one of my favorites from Signazon for the wall, and I think it looks perfect up there with photos from the last few years. It came packaged really well, shipped fast, and the picture looks amazing on it.


Because I’m in the Christmas spirit, I’m giving away a $50 credit to, so one of you lucky readers can pick out your own canvas, custom sign, business cards, or any of their high-quality custom products.

Giveaway is open to US residents only. Winner will be chosen via random drawing on or after December 12, and will have 48 hours after notification to respond with contact information, or another winner will be chosen. Good luck!
