Holiday Card ideas! (There’s still time.)

Haven’t quite gotten around to photographing the kids for a holiday card? (Don’t worry, us either). Lucky for you, there’s still plenty of time and we’ve got a few tips to help get that picture perfect shot.

Minted

Full tummies, big smiles. Snack or feed before the shoot—and then get dressed in your photo-ready looks.

Get into the groove. Cue up baby’s favorite tracks to set the mood.

Keep it real.  We 💗 outtakes. Our favorite holiday shots show kids as they really are—goofy smiles and all.

 

 

Bring along reinforcement. Do the kids always happen to be in good moods when grandma or a cousin are around? Have them come by to help bring on the smiles.

Lighting is key. If it’s not realistic for you to shoot outside, choose a time during the day when the house has as much natural light as possible. (Pro tip: Use a flash outdoors and not indoors!)

Make it (actually) fun! Wrap a few presents for them to open while you’re shooting, bring on the sugar cookies or even move the photo shoot to your bed for a few jumping photos.
