A Christmas photoshoot – Personalising our Christmas cards with Postsnap

We had a bit of festive fun over the weekend running a little family photo shoot for our Christmas cards. I’d already bought Bristol-themed cards from a charity shop but Postsnap asked me to try their service so I thought we’d save those for another year.

I say, fun but I think the girls and I were having fun. Laurence was finding it a bit stressful because Ophelia kept on moving! Talitha is actually really good about staying still to have her picture taken (blogger’s child!) but even she got bored after a while. We all loved looking at the results, though.

Postsnap is a free-to-download photosharing app which enables you to create greeting cards and postcards from a picture stored on your iPhone or iPad or uploaded to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. You get to personalise them and can even address them straight to the recipient, all from your phone.

It’s a breeze to use. I signed up in seconds and made my order within a couple of minutes. I’m waiting for the results now (I only ordered today) so will be back to update this post once I have the cards in hand.

As is often the way, we ended up going with the first photo we took (the first image in this post). We tried to get all of us in but it wasn’t working. I thought I was really clever by getting our festive socks on but Ophelia wouldn’t play along, unsurprisingly!

Getting these cards done is just making me think of all the people who we love but don’t see often. Whenever we think about abandoning this tradition of sending Christmas cards, I’m glad we don’t because, though I’m rubbish at staying in touch, I do want to keep sending a tangible message to our friends and family that we are thinking of them, treasure their place in our lives and hope to see them soon.
