Before you deck the halls, light the menorah, or do the New Year’s countdown, get prepared for the holidays by getting your family pictures NOW! Many families love sending out holiday cards, but more often than not, they plan their session really late and during the busiest time of the year. Even with the best planning, the holidays are always hectic and full of exciting parties, leaving very little if any time to plan and actually get holiday photos! Time and time again, families have the intention of sending out holiday cards but get too late of a start. Don’t let that be you this year! You deserve to have a holiday as stress-free as possible, so seriously consider scheduling a family holiday photo session with our office now.
Many moms who attempted their Christmas pictures last year were FREEZING in the snow banks! We here at Kelly Weave Photography strive to make family pictures as painless as possible, so we have special, 30-minute, FAST and PAINLESS family photo mini-sessions. Having short, organized family sessions are great because your time is important, and you’re probably already gearing up for the holidays, so why not treat yourself to a easeful family pictures session?
A great tip to making the family feel more relaxed and look forward to the sometimes dreaded family pictures day is to make it a FAMILY DAY! After your photo session, plan a special lunch or dinner out or some sort of special outing. It’s not everyday the whole family can get together in one place, so plan something unique that will make the day memorable. Doing this will also make the family photos feel even MORE special! Also, before your family pictures shoot, make sure everyone has a little bite to eat. Snacks will help ease grumbling and give the kids a little tide-me-over until the big meal.
Another tip to keep in mind is to wear THIN layers because thick layers add weight and can make you look puffy. Also have the family pick from the same color palette. Blue, gray, and maroon are great color choices, and JEANS always work!
For your holiday greetings of good cheer, we also offer a WAY COOL Tiny Prints Christmas card option, which allows our clients to upload their favorite images to our own “Tiny Prints” online storefront. They simply drag and drop their favorite family pictures in a number of Christmas Card templates. This makes creating holiday greeting cards even MORE easy!
