Our Own Christmas Pictures with Joshua Trees - Picture Slide Show

Updated on September 3, 2012

When we got married we always took our own Christmas pictures. In 2008 we were living in California and I decided that since we lived in the middle of the desert that our Christmas picture should reflect a little about our lives. We took a friend and started driving until we found the perfect Joshua Tree to decorate for our pictures. We had to park the car and walk through the desert a bit but the kids loved it and so did I. Here's our pictures :)

Taking your own pictures at Christmas, in my opinion, make it so much more personal then if they are done at a studio. It's hard to do it if you don't have someone who is willing to help with the pictures but it can be a whole lot of fun for the whole family. A lot more fun then sitting in a certain position and having the same backdrop as the next family. I hope you enjoyed the Joshua Christmas Tree hub!!!

Thanks for SHARING!

      I love your Christmas Joshua Tree! Your photographs are wonderful, and I especially like photos of the Joshua Tree against the sky. What a unique family portrait. You must remember to share again at Christmas time!
