Rocking a Christmas Family Photoshoot!
There is no better time than Christmas for an excuse to get the family together for festive fun at Photographic Synergy. A Christmas photoshoot is the best way to celebrate the holidays with loved ones, then turn your family pictures into Christmas cards and cherished mementos.
Cute Children’s Christmas Photoshoot
We find that distracting the kids with some fun activities can create some stunning photos for your family album. Pillow fights in pajamas or blowing a little fake snow can work wonders, while some strategically placed fairy lights in the background create the atmosphere.
Adorable Baby Christmas Photoshoots
Getting your baby all dressed up for Christmas is something you’re always remember. Props could include Christmas books, toys or strings of Christmas lights can also be a bright idea! You could experiment with your infant popping out of a Christmas wrapped gift box. If you have a newborn then getting them all wrapped up in a cozy Christmas coloured wool blanket makes for some lovely photographs.
Go all out with a silhouette by the Christmas tree. Think about mistletoe, or a festive bow around your belly with symbols of love or gift tags with your due date for unwrapping!
Newborn Noel Photoshoots
Consider wrapping your newborn in a cute little winter hat, or within a Christmas wreath. An outfit with red, white or green colours is a great way to celebrate the festive season. Alternatively, be subtle and use a little spruce or a bauble to suggest Christmas time.
Why not go all about and bring along some Christmas string lights to wrap around people. Or, for a play on words use some masking tape over your little cherubs mouths with the words “silent night”. Try wearing costumes like the Grinch or other Christmas characters. Cheesy pajamas or “ugly” sweaters never fail to create some festive fun.
Romantic Couples Christmas Photoshoot
A kiss under the mistletoe is always a winner, while another idea that works well is holding up two candy canes in front of the camera to make a shape of a heart. You can also try Christmas socks to suggest the action of a romantic kiss, rather than capturing the whole frame. Then sometimes simply cuddled up in front of the camera with Christmas pajamas and hot chocolate can work just as well!
Christmas Pooch Photoshoot
Why not bring your family pet along to a Christmas photoshoot or let them stand out in their very own Christmas themed shoot. Festive themed dog collars, hats, antlers, toys and bows all work well.
Christmas Photoshoot Review
Above all the most important items to bring along to your Christmas photoshoot are festive props. Think Christmas pajamas, festive jumpers, socks, ties, hats and winter gloves, scarves or mitts! Accessories could include Christmas coloured rugs or towels, Christmas story books, Christmas mugs or even string Christmas lights. Think about Christmas bows, candy and gift wrapped boxes to include in your shoot.
