I'm so excited that it is Holiday Photo time again!
I look forward to it every year and I love getting together with families to do a fun photo shoot with a range of both silly and sentimental portraits.
Here's a glimpse at my first session of the season.
A couple of things to remember when you are planning your holiday photos:
- Outfits: coordinating but don't have to be "matchy-matchy" (if that's a word), and let them be comfortable if possible and fitting to their personality for a more authentic experience
- Choose a photographer you are comfortable with
- Have fun, do silly poses to loosen up....it increases the potential for capturing some "twinkle-in-your-eyes smiles", giggles that turn into laugh-out-loud moments, and truly memorable expressions
......loosening up with some silly poses:
Also consider this. While colors of the Fall and Christmas season are truly magical and should certainly be photographed; we would be remiss to neglect the fact that black and white portraits are timeless.
Sometimes the photos that are completely un-posed are the ones that speak most strongly to us.
And please don't shy away from close-ups. The eyes. The smile. That moment in time. Incredible.
I hope your Holiday Photo session this year is fabulous! And if you are in my area and want to book my services send me a quick message....just don't wait too long; availability fills up quickly. Thanks!
