Christmas card photo shoot 2012

Santa in his sleigh with his reindeer's
This probably will be one of the pictures we will use in our 2012 Christmas card.
I think we will do a college Christmas card picture like we did last year. I like college prints because I can never just pick one photo.
Here is last years Christmas card.
Christmas card 2011

Our furry family sure has grown in the last year!

Did you notice my picture quality being any better than usual in my first pic? I hope so because I got a new camera, & I paid a very pretty penny for it! I got a Nikon D7000. I got the camera for 999.99 but regular price is 1,500! I fought the black Friday crowds and saved 500 dollars on it, well worth the lines! I love this camera because with DSLR camera's you can get those clicker remotes things that they use at photography studios. I got one & it is so awesome, I can jump around and do silly crazy stuff to get my pets to look at me while stilling taking pictures.

This picture above was my 2nd favorite from my photo shoot today, but I still like the one at the top of this post better.

Above it my "forest" which is what I call it.
I have been collecting white & silver trees for the past 3 years now.
I'll be doing a another post of my Christmas decorating very soon, my house is getting more decked out by the days.


  1. I'm loving those sweet holiday photos--if anyone deserves that new camera you do! I think you will go far with your talent of pet photography. What a blessing it is you won that money :)

  2. Janae! Your furry family is just precious!!!! This is the cutest Christmas card I have ever seen!!!! I have a little pom too. Aren't they the best!!!
    I'm so happy I stopped by! What a happy post!

  3. Oh my goodness....that holiday photo is too cute! I could never get my 2 chi chi's too sit still that long especially with something on their heads. Good thing you have that camera! Expecting to see more cuteness from it! ~Hugs, Patti

  4. WOW, you are such a gifted photographer!! The Christmas photo is wonderful and fun...makes me smile. So glad you were able to buy that camera.

  5. That Christmas photo is adorable!! Wish I could get my fur babies to sit still for photos like that! Well done you :) x

  6. What an amazing Christmas picture, Janae! I can't get enough of it. I can never get enough of Bunny Foufou, either!

  7. Love your pictures Janae and it's awesome that you got a new camera! How fun! I must admit that in the picture at the top with all of your lovely pets...your white kitty kat is kind of cracking me up with the look on his/her face and those antlers. Really adorable!

  8. OMG! Those photos are so darling! I wish you lived by me so I could hire you to photograph my dogs like that. Heck, I think if I even put on outfit on them, let alone reindeer ears or hats they would freak out and never sit down long enough to take a picture.

    So cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Once again I am in awe of your skills. I have a three lb. maltipoo and can not ever get a decent photo of him - yet you manage to get six different animals, of different species and wearing outfits on top of everything else - to sweetly pose for you!!!!! Again, SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!!!! Your Christmas card this year will definitely bring lots of smiles to all who receive one.

  10. janae, i loved the photo of santa and his reindeer!!! i agree with stacye#39's comment, the white cat, billie? is cracking me up!! i always enjoy your pet pictures and your blog is one of my top 2 fav's...the other one is your mom!!! have a lovely christmas in your pretty home. all the best, donna

  12. A photo desk calendar is a beautiful and highly personal way to customise the desk in your office or home office.
