Holiday Photography

December 16, 2019

Everyone wants to capture the magic of the holiday season, whether it’s your family, pets, friends, or just yourself! These photography tips will help you capture those special moments you’ll cherish for a lifetime!

Frame the Photo

There are so many ways that you can frame a photo, especially around the holidays. It is the perfect time to create some fun and creative ways to get extra mileage out of your decorations. You can use Christmas lights to frame a photo, a window, a wreath—anything will work! Let your creativity shine throughout the holiday season.

Go Outside!

It might be cold but it’s worth it! You can get some amazing family photos, or photos of your kids, or pets, playing in the snow. No snow where you live? No problem! You can still use natural lighting to your advantage to create stunning family portraits. When photographing outside in the winter months, be aware of the elements. Bring warm clothes, and make sure you take care of your gear.

Use Lighting to Your Advantage

Lighting your photo properly can elevate your photo. There are many ways to use lighting creatively throughout the holiday season. As we said earlier, be creative! Use your Christmas tree, Christmas lights, candles, etc. This season creates some magical photos with little effort!

Candid Photos

We’ve probably said it before, and we’re saying it again: candid photos are some of the best photos that you can capture. If you give someone a gift, you can capture their face during the exciting moment they’re opening it. You could photograph your family decorating the Christmas tree, or a baby looking at the tree for the first time. It is great to take candid photos of kids—your own, your friends, grandkids, nieces, and nephews.
