No worries – go grab a cup of cocoa (or mulled wine if you prefer) and come along as we provide all the helpful tips, tricks, and ideas for making an unforgettable family Christmas shoot your little ones will treasure for years to come – without needing to break out any tricky technical stuff!
1. Plan ahead
With Christmas coming up, the time is now to start planning the perfect photoshoot. Taking the time to plan ahead and figure out the right kind of poses and backdrops will be worth it when you have a collection of beautiful photos to look back on and share with family and friends. Consider things like classical or whimsical poses, indoor or outdoor shots, simple or elaborate backgrounds - whatever fits your family’s style best - as you make your plans. Creativity is key and paying attention to detail will make all the difference in making this Christmas photo session one that leaves a lasting impression!
2. Choose a festive location
If you want to make sure your Christmas photoshoot is a success this year, why not go outside? Setting it up in either your front porch or backyard will add to the festivities of the season. With plenty of cozy blankets and decorations, you can make an Instagram-worthy scene that is full of holiday cheer. When choosing a location, think about what type of background you want- something lush with greenery or maybe a more wintery look like snow or twinkle lights. Once you have chosen your spot and planned out the set-up, take as many photos as possible until you get it just right! Don’t forget to capture special moments like posing with Santa hats or baking cookies. With some festive locations and fun props, your Christmas photoshoot will definitely be one to remember!
3. Dress in coordinating colors and styles
The Christmas season is here and with the holidays often comes family photoshoots to capture the moment. Nailing the perfect Christmasy photoshoot can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be difficult! One of the easiest ways to create cohesion across an entire family holiday look is to dress in coordinating colors and styles. Think classic red and green holiday tones, geometric prints and traditional plaids that coordinate into a pleasing spectrum of color and pattern. Consider textures like velvet too, or pick out one statement piece like a Santa hat or Santa scarf to create the perfect Christmas photoshoot everyone will ooh and aah over! With everyone dressed in a similar, yet individual style, each member of the family will stand out while fitting perfectly together in your photos!
4. Coordinate poses
There’s nothing more special than having a photoshoot with your family or friends at Christmastime! Coordinating poses can make your photos look cohesive and create memories of laughter and fun. When planning a Christmas photoshoot, start by thinking about who will be in the photo. Consider everyone’s personalities and favorite activities, then brainstorm ideas that bring everyone together for a unified pose. Once you decide on a pose, be sure to capture candid moments too; candid photos are often the most treasured because they are spontaneous! With a bit of creativity and preparation, coordinating poses with your family or friends will make for an unforgettable Christmas photoshoot.
5. Use props
Christmas photoshoots are a lot of fun but can also be challenging. Utilizing props is the perfect way to add creative touches and make your photos stand out this Christmas. Consider incorporating unique holiday decorations like Christmas trees, festive wreaths, lights, ornaments and other seasonal trinkets that will make your photos more interesting and captivating. As an added bonus, props can also help create engaging poses for your shoots as well!
