Christmas in October?

Lauren and I got together recently with the goal of shooting our holiday promo early this year.  I loved this idea, because it gave us time to make the photos exactly what we want, and now we will have plenty of time left to design the card and have it professionally printed before having to send it out.  

I don't want to give away too much, because then what's the point of the card? But I can tell you that we decided to do a "process shot" of gingerbread cookies. The dough, the cookies cutters, the final baked cookie and lastly, the decorating. We had a blast shooting it, as always, and after much debate (mostly from myself) over whether or not to make the photos black and white, we decided that with the richness of the brown in the gingerbread dough, it had to be color.

Like I said, I don't want to give too much away, but here are some examples of what we shot.

PS- The cookies were delicious.
