Christmas Photos

In this digital age, we’re taking photos of our families all the time, but there are still only a couple of times a year when we stop, slow down, and actually plan out a photo where everyone (hopefully) is included, captured with brushed hair and smiling faces. The biggest is the first-day-of-school photo, but those only focus on the kids. The family holiday card may be the only time all year when the whole crew gets together for a decent picture. Here are some tips for where to take the shot, what to wear, how to position your family, where to put the light, and how to keep the little ones from squirming and grimacing.
