I was so happy when my friend Abby asked me to take photos of her and her roommate Clare- they’re making a Christmas card! Contrary to the popular belief, the two aren’t related (gasp!). While they may share the same middle and last name, the two met on Facebook over the summer when looking for a roommate, and they realized they had more in common than they thought! I think it’s such an adorable idea to create a Christmas card with your roommate- a trend that’s been circulating throughout college campuses lately. You don’t need to have the same last name in order to do this either- but festive Christmas sweaters are certainly required.

Abby, Clare and I tried our best in scouting the most Christmassy locations around campus before the sun decided to set on us. I think the shots came out amazing, and I hope everyone can how adorable their friendship is in some of these candid shots. It was so hard to decide which one they would choose for their official Christmas card, so their final decision is going to be a surprise. Take a look at the fun these girls had during this spur-of-the-moment shoot!
