Tips for Holiday Family Photos

I look forward to our family photo sessions but sometimes it can be hard to prepare – especially around the holidays when things are extra busy! I have a few tips and ideas that worked well for us this time.  Starting with this idea from our photographer….. ~

Document a tradition. Cookie making, family pajamas, etc. 

 Make a *wish* list of photos that you want

Be in the moment..

Go outside!

Have an extra set of hands to help if you have lots of little ones

Get individual shots of everyone if time allows ~
