Choose the card first. That’s right. Before you pick up a camera or hire a photographer, find a card you like . It could give you ideas.
Be casual. Do not act super posed. Do not all wear the exact same plaid jumper. And please (please please PRETTY PLEASE) do not stare off into the distance.
Instead, be funny. Get candid photos of the kids laughing. Make funny faces. And certainly embrace everyone’s unique personalities.
And you know you don’t have to use the silly faces photos. If you don’t like them – Delete! Get golden. The sun is your friend, but only for about two hours of the day. If you’re taking your photos in nature, set your clocks for an hour after sunrise or an hour before sunset. It’s called the Golden Hour and it’ll ensure you don’t need as much concealer.
What to wear?
Chances are you don’t have a professional stylist, and that’s cool.
Remember what it says above about casual? That goes for clothing, too. You don’t need to wear your Sunday best. Just try not to match the colors of the background and you’ll look great.
Show off your personality.
Let’s be honest; holiday cards are for showing off how happy, cute, and fun-loving your family is. Do whatever you want. Ignore everything you just read if that’s your thing.
The most important thing is that your photos are a true (or at least mostly-true ) reflection of you.
