Photographer Stephanie Jarstad says she was first inspired to make her incredibly festive "12 Beards Of Christmas" photo project while working on a related series for Movember, an annual, moustache-themed effort to raise awareness for men's health and prostate cancer. The resulting photographs were beard-tastic, and sure to make an impact.
"I love the conversation photography brings to life," she told A+ in an email, adding that she also liked just how quirky and fun she knew "12 Beards" would be.
"I would walk around craft stores and think, 'This is small enough and would make a good Christmas beard!'" she wrote with evident humor. "I've definitely never shopped with that intent before."
