The Holiday Season is officially upon us which means you’re probably about to gather the family for your annual family portrait. Good news! Aris Affairs Photography, your local Prescott professional photographer, would like to offer these fun and creative ideas to help make this year’s family holiday photos your best.
Pose like your kid’s family drawing
Do you have your child’s favorite family ‘portrait’ on your fridge door? Have fun recreating your little one’s view of the family.
Take advantage of the fall
If you can’t rely on a beautiful new winter snow backdrop, take advantage of fall’s glorious colors and have fun tossing those brilliant autumn leaves into the air to capture some childhood magic.
Transplant the sofa
Temporarily relocate your sofa outside to the back porch, deck, or even into the backyard for a casual but intimate family portrait. Add a Merry Christmas banner with a few festive holiday lights to top off the look.
Frame the family
Play with an empty frame by trying out different poses. Let your youngest ones pose in front or squish your whole family together behind the frame.
Props give holiday photos a unique twist. Period outfits, an all-hat look or loads of jewelry can make holiday photos really memorable. Don’t forget, bigger and brighter can be a lot of fun!
Say it with words
Choose a word that perfectly describes what your family or holidays mean to you then ask each person to hold a letter of that word.
Let the little ones have a ball decorating the parents or grands like a Christmas tree. The images will be enjoyed and treasured for years.
Stop by a tree farm
Your local tree farm can provide an idyllic setting for just about any holiday photo.
Let your loved ones, friends and distant relatives in on any news with a bright and cheery chalkboard message. Whether it’s the parents, grandparents, or the youngsters holding the chalkboard, this little detail makes a regular picture extra special.
