Yes, Christmas in July is here!
Yes, Christmas in July is here. Just in time to bring us happy thoughts after the year we’ve been experiencing. This year has been one for the record books and I’m sure you’re looking forward to happy times with your family; because I am. Although it’s only July, it’s a perfect time to start planning your family’s Christmas pictures in Los Angeles.
Sending Christmas cards to family and friends is like an unspoken tradition across the United States. It doesn't matter where you live, many people look forward to receiving Christmas cards from family members and friends you may not have seen in a while. This is especially exciting for military families, as we are typically servicing (OConus or Conus) in areas away from our immediate and/or extended families. Have you taken your family's portrait to send out your latest Christmas card?
Christmas is right around the corner and only a few other holidays have as many wonderful and timeless treats that represent the season. The fragrance of cakes, cookies, tarts, candy canes, and more saturate the air everywhere you go. I feel like I’m gaining 10 pounds just thinking about all the great food!
During this time, if you’re like me, many families look for delicious and creative desserts to have for Christmas Lunch/Dinner or for your office holiday parties. It’s better if you can have delicious desserts and not have to bake or cook them yourself.
Well, you don’t have to look any further. Let me introduce you to Jasmine Hardin of Jazzy Cakes. For the last few weeks, I’ve been seeing videos and pictures of her cakes on Facebook. I decided to contact Jasmine to learn about her and her business. After meeting Jasmine, I was fascinated by her story and how she began her business in April 2016. She articulated, her and husband enjoy cooking and baking. Jasmine enjoys baking cakes for her family, but one day her husband purchased a bucket of fondant for her to experiment with. Her eldest child’s birthday was approaching, so Jasmine utilized the fondant to decorate his cake; which was a Monster Car cake. Being proud and excited about the work she created, Jasmine took to Facebook to share pictures of her creation. As you can see, her first cake was beautiful. From there, many of Jasmine’s friends loved her creations as well and was interested in her creating something for them.
I am officially presenting this year’s Christmas Card offerings. Below you will find examples of the designs as well as a new (and hopefully) easier ordering process. This process has been created to stream line the ordering process. Custom or semi custom designs can still be done for an added “creation” fee. If you have already had your pictures done and would like to place and order, or if you want to book a holiday card session, please schedule online, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more details or to receive an order form contact the studio. Please note most wording to the cards can be changed for no additional cost. Thank you!
It's hard to believe, we will start seeing different holiday decorations up in stores in less than 5 months! This year seems as if it's going by extremely fast. Although I'm not complaining, because I'll be able to see my family in December!
