The Holiday season is as stressful as it is joyful.  A special time to spend with family but make sure you don’t forget a gift for someone!  This worry and stress also often applies to getting those family photos taken for your holiday cards and getting them out the door!  Here are the most important aspects of creating the perfect holiday card!

Hire a Professional

As far as the photos themselves go you have two options, get them taken professionally or set up a tripod and hope for the best!  If time and money allow I would highly recommend finding a local talented photographer to capture your family’s life memories.  Find a beautiful place to go and have fun with your little fam while someone else does all the hard work.

DIY Family Photos

If for some reason you do not have the time or the funds to support that then find a pretty spot in your backyard or at a park down the street.  For us it was a little of both this year and so I found a spot in the backyard that had a good backdrop and I set up a little area.  I included a fun Christmas blanket, two pillows and a small tree in a basket!  I also decorated the bush and the tree in the background with some light and ornaments.  One of the things I love about doing the photos ourselves in our backyard is the flexibility and the only time limit is when the sun goes down!  It might take a few tries but the outtakes will be fun to look at!  Once you get the perfect photo, then its time to get the perfect card!
