It may only be October, but this is the perfect time to start planning your Christmas card photos.
The slightly cooler weather and gorgeous colors of fall make for the most beautiful backdrops. With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, why not take advantage of the current setting to shoot your holiday card photos.
We get booked up very quickly from October on, especially the weekends, so it’s best to start arranging your family photoshoot now to avoid the last-minute rush later.
Below are a few top tips for planning and creating the perfect fall family photoshoot.
- Pick the perfect location. Spend some time picking out the perfect location for your shoot. If you really want to take advantage of the current seasonal changes, pick a spot with lots of trees so that you can incorporate those lovely fall colors into your photos. If you’re unsure about locations, just ask! We are happy to offer suggestions.
- Add a few action shots. While it’s great to get some posed shots for your holiday card, throw in a few action shots and decide which shot you like best afterwards. Kids playing in the fall leaves make for some beautiful photos.
- Plan your outfits. Matching outfits are no longer something you need to incorporate into your holiday photos but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan what you’re going to wear. Opt for solid, complimentary colors and stay away from busy patterns and logos.
- Use the golden hour to your advantage. The golden hour takes place around 15-20 minutes before sunset. The light is soft and flattering. If possible, plan your photoshoot around the afternoon golden hour.
