I started getting custom family stationery when Ruby was born almost 5 years ago so that we could send them out to thanks loved ones for the baby gifts we had received. Illustrated by the super talented Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co, I couldn't not display them somehow, so we framed the first one. And since then, we now update it every year or so (with our newest shown above).
It's fun to see how our family has grown (RIP cats)! We've worked with Anna since the beginning as she illustrated Ruby's baby announcement but you can also find a variety of illustrators in different styles who offer custom portraits including Sophie & Lili and MerryMakeCo. While I also love photographed family photos, these are a fun way to show how your family changes over the years!
