our family christmas card photos!

love-taza-christmas-card-photos947h4-22

i’m so excited to share our family photos for our christmas card this year! i love how they turned out.  katie rain took them at the beginning of the month on a super cold saturday morning where i tried my best to really bundle everyone up but we still felt cold (my ankles especially. will i ever learn?!) i don’t know why family photos tend to stress me out, but i felt a little anxious this round when we’re trying to get all five of us in one shot. sometimes chasing 3 kids down the street feels like you’re chasing 12, and maybe that has something to do with it. ;) but i love these photos! and am so so happy to have several great shots of all of us together!

we met up in the west village on a darling little street (it’s where i took these balloon polaroids with friends a million years ago!) and one of my favorite hidden windy streets in new york and then walked to a little cafe for some hot chocolate and happened upon a block full of christmas trees for sale where my kids were ecstatic to hide and play in the trees.

a few of my favorite images…

i put this one on the back of our christmas card because i just love how samson’s face is poking through his faux fur hood, conrad is cracking up at probably his own knock-knock joke and eleanor has such a genuine happy smile going on, i could look at this picture all day long.

pictures with all five of us in the frame have to be the most special images to me. i just love them so much. and i love receiving christmas cards from friends and family with pictures of their beautiful families or children because they just make me so happy. having people you love and hold dear in life is what it’s all about. so thankful for my people. and to katie rain for taking these photos for us! (especially since she lives in san francisco but always makes time when she’s in the city to take our family photos. she took the ones of us at the natural history museum, on the brooklyn bridge for christmas last year and in central park the summer before, too! so many of those old photos are also my favorites.)

  5. Totally worth it freezing to see these images (sorry!) I just love Conrad’s facial expressions. And I do love that photo of the 3 of them together as well.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family Naomi! All the best for 2017 :)

    I love these photos more than I can actually express! I wish family Christmas cards were a bigger thing in the UK because I would be all over that!!!

  7. Jessica

    Perfect family pictures! You and Eleanor are gorgeous as always and Conrad!!! I love all his expressions!

  8. Corina

    Oh Naomi. This family of yours is so special… beautiful photos.

  9. Claire

    So much to say.

    First of all, these pictures are just the best! So beautiful and so truly linked to your family, your spirit and your joy.
    I especially love the one with all of your feet. Just perfect and so special.

    This street is also beautiful, and so fun to see because I knew that street from the old pictures you’ve post but not from your blog. 🤔 But pretty sure I have them right now in my computer or in my phone.

    Josh and you really make me believe in love. I know it’s sound really silly but that’s the truth.

    And I’m on team free ankles like you, I don’t think we ever learn some day about that…

    Your blog is the best, I used to follow a lot of blogs on the internet but only yours stayed on my daily list with the time.

    Love love love love that post. So much. 💛 And once again make me want to visit NYC so badly.

    All the best for the five of you.
    Merry Christmas.

    Greetings from France,

    Claire.

    Hi Taza, the cards you receive from friends with their family photo on it, what do you do with the card after Christmas?
    I feel so guilty if I throw it out but otherwise I have these random family portraits of my friends that I just don’t know what to do with it??? Keep it for the sake of it (in a box? where would you keep it?) or throw it out??
    Thanks for the insight!!

  12. The pictures are the best. Conrard in red wall….
    You are lucky to have the photos soooooo hice..
    Merry christmas to the whole family

    Beautiful photos, they look so cute and fun. I have a silly question though, how do you choose outfits for the pictures? Everyones personality comes through and looks good together without being too matchy.

    Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!

  14. Heidi

    I also adore this area of the village (I recognized the Cherry Lane Theatre in the background)! My husband and I were recently there for a visit, and I had my eyes peeled for you and your beautiful family! :-) Gorgeous photos!

  15. Hannah

    Oh my gosh, that is the most perfect little quaint city street! I want to live there! <3 And gorgeous pics of your adorable family. Merry Christmas!

  16. Ooooh, very beautiful! And how cute is the ring of Eleanor? <3

  17. omg Conrad’s hat! and Eleanor’s hat! I love that photo where Eleanor is holding the wreath over her face; I have a thing for faceless portraits :) Also loving the photo of Conrad against the red wall; gotta love a good wall. And loving the photo of Samson and Conrad hiding together in the trees. You have such a precious family! You found a cute little street, and it’s always a win if you manage to get pictures without strangers photobombing them, NYC being so densely populated and all! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    Beautiful photos and beautiful family!

    Conrad by himself poking out of the Christmas trees — HEART EYES!

  20. I always love seeing your holiday photos, its not much of a tradition here in the UK so its nice to see families I follow online growing and changing each year through their Christmas cards! I especially love the one of you and Josh, its just so magical although that one of not-so-little E on her own is just darling! Merry Christmas Davis family, may it be merry and bright!
