My friend Caro just posted a gorgeous portrait of herself on Instagram that she had made by a professional photographer. The picture reminds me of one of my favorite hacks: get professional photos taken every year. Otherwise, a year will go by with only a handful of semi-crappy photos of the four of us. These photos don’t have to cost a ton. Get together with a few families (or your extended family) and book a photographer together. But, the idea of doing it just for yourself seems next level. I mean, how stunning is this photo? I can see into her soul. I know what’s on my Christmas list.
