It’s that time of the year again; from taking
the kids to visit Santa to picking up the perfect Christmas tree and preparing
the holiday feast for the family. In between all of the holiday prep, you can’t
forget about holiday family photos! Holiday photos are the perfect way to
preserve those special family memories for your children for years to come.
It’s no easy task getting the kids to pose in place while you’re worried about
your own placement!
Fortunately, Book Camera Man has the four key
tips for you to follow before your family photoshoot to ensure the perfect
Plan Classic Colour Coordination
Clothing plays a significant role in a
tasteful family photo! The unity of your family will be expressed far more
clearly and effectively if each member is dressed in the same style as each
other and in sync with the photoshoots interior or exterior background
aesthetic. Popular colour combination examples include white, red and green,
wearing matching holiday pyjamas or beautiful soft blues and silver. You’ll
love the organization and solidarity expressed through these treasured holiday
Pick A Magical Location
Holiday images will naturally appear more
festive, but selecting a magical winter location or backdrop will really enhance
these merry elements even further. From an ice skating rink to a winter
photoshoot on a lit-up street or cozy in your home, choose a location that is
meaningful to your family or a place that makes for a charming backdrop. Before
you hire a Toronto photographer, scout out your location and ensure it’s
suitable for the photoshoot.
Include Holiday Props
Props not only add character to the photo, but
they also tell the story you want to convey! Whether you’re creating a winter
wonderland or a snug celebration opening up presents around the fire, including
props in your photoshoot boosts creativity and translate the message of family
bonding, harmony, and holiday spirit into an image. Props are also a great way
to occupy and focus the kids while our Book Camera Man snaps away. From a plush
reindeer to closed presents or handing them the carrot to put on the snowman,
these props will help complete the photographs.
Include Your Pets
If furry friends are apart of your family,
include them in your holiday photoshoot! The kids will love playing with the
puppy while they open presents and will cherish the images that include their
furry best friend when they’re older. Think of your pet as a prop as well and
it will make posing with them far easier and translate into beautiful images
the whole family will love!

family will treasure for years to come, give Book Camera Man a call! When you
