It’s the most wonderful time of the year—holiday card season! The holidays bring with them so many fun opportunities to make memories and celebrate with the ones you love, and taking photos for your annual card to send to family and friends is a great chance to capture memories of your family each year.
But if you take a family photo every year during the holiday season, you may be tired of the same old standard poses and looks. Well, we’re here to help! Check out these fun ideas for your holiday photos!
What better way to capture the spirit of the season than by baking cookies or decorating a Christmas tree? Ask your photographer to capture you and your kids in action participating in one of your favorite holiday pastimes at home.
If you live somewhere where you regularly see snow in the winter, getting all dressed up in your winter coats, boots, and hats is a fun theme for your holiday card photos. If you have enough snow, you can even build a snowman or have a snowball fight!
There’s nothing cuter than matching PJs! Dress your family up in themed pajamas like the classic plaid or a holiday pattern.
Pets are part of the family too, so why not include them in your photos? Whether that means putting antlers on your dog or giving your cat some garland to play with, there are plenty of ways to include your four-legged friends in your holiday card images.
If you’re looking for something a little more unique, consider holding or wrapping Christmas lights around you. When photographed in low light by a professional, the effect is stunning!
If you have a new baby in the family, you know how fun it is to watch them experience things for the first time. Focus on your little one enjoying the magic of the holidays!
Got a favorite holiday book? For a cozy lifestyle session, gather your family on the bed or sofa and read a story together. These photos always turn out adorable!
