As December approaches, more and more people begin the yearly struggle of choosing the right photograph for their Christmas cards. Unfortunately, this is often easier said than done. Chances are, you always receive that one card that really makes you go “wow” and as a result, you want to make sure your card produces that same reaction from everyone who receives it. If you want to get your cards right this year, use the tips here.
No one wants to be scrambling to find that ideal shot when they are trying to plan parties, host guests, buying gifts and preparing for various family gatherings. A rushed or forced photo will not create a message that exudes goodwill or thankfulness, especially if you have teenagers involved with the process. Rather than thinking about your card photo in December, try to carve out some time in November. Planning ahead will help you get the shot you really want for your photos.
Be sure Your Personality Shines Through
Do you have a little one that insists on wearing their Captain America costume no matter where you are going? If so, consider letting them wear it for the holiday photo. The child will be happier, you will be happier and your family and friends are bound to love the way you display the uniqueness of your family.
Create a Story
Is your family known for a unique passion, special pastime or special talent? Are you know as the family who loves a certain college football team or playing competitive card games? If so, try to make this part of your holiday photo. It will provide a unique perspective of your family and ensure everyone in the photo is having fun. After all, if you integrate something you love, everyone is bound to be happier for the picture.
Think Outside of the Box
While tradition is something that is never going to go out of style, but you are tired of the same old posed family photo, considering mixing it up a bit. You don’t have to be color coordinated or formal to make a great photo. Try matching pajamas or everyone roasting marshmallows. Everyone will have a better experience when you do something new and exciting in the photo.
Taking the time to consider the tips here will help you create the ideal Christmas card this year. No longer do you have to go with dull and drab – with the tips here you will be able to easily create an unforgettable card that will definitely inspire a few “wows.”
