On the one hand, I love the sentiment and warmth of the image below (though my hand looks weird - ugh).
But on the other, these holiday cards are really all about the child, right? So perhaps a more formal portrait where you can see Ave's face would be more appropriate. But it's technically not as good as the photo above (over exposed and we're squinting from the sun).
So which one? 1 = top photo. 2 = bottom photo. 3 = use both. 4 = neither, you're all squinting too much.
