Honoring Dad During the Holidays
A family is an important part of the holiday season, and that is why you can find a collection of Christmas cards for Dad here on Shutterfly's. For some inspiration on staging photos that put papa front and center, check out these ideas. This all applies whether you live in a two-parent home or a single-parent one.
Front and Center
Most group photos put the tallest person in the back, and the head of the family is often the tallest. This is especially true with new families where the kids are only a few feet high. If you use a block or some steps, you can lift anyone who is shorter to a higher point and everyone can fan outward from the center person, from your father, making him the focal point.
You can fit four or more photos on some of our card designs, meaning you can create photo collage Christmas cards. While this activity takes a few more mouse clicks as you line up everyone's gaze, the end effect has a personal feel as well as a touch of nostalgia.
Picture Within a Picture
Another way to use separate shots is to layer them. A hot trend is creating the illusion of a picture within a picture where one person holds a picture frame and another picture is digitally placed inside. To get more photo ideas, feel free to check out our ideas page about staging great shots for your daddy Christmas card photos.
