Prepare For Your Family Photos Outfits & More
Make a plan now for your yearly family holiday photograph. Book your professional photography appointment as soon as possible to avoid the rush and guarantee a spot — especially if you plan to use the photo for your holiday cards.
1. Schedule an appointment
When you set your photography session should be determined by your family’s schedule, what types of photos you want and the photographer’s openings. If you prefer an outdoor photo, ensure the weather and foliage will convey the appropriate time of year.
2. Decide on outfits
Your family could be extremely coordinated or simply have each family member wear what he or she prefers to wear — it’s entirely up to you! In any case this is a good time to check your closet and organize the wardrobe for the season.
3. Ask about mini-sessions
To save a little extra money, ask if your photographer offers mini-sessions. These appointments are shorter, typically 15-30 minutes long and cost about half the amount a typical photography session would.
4. Get digital copies of your photos
Most photographers include a set number of digital photos with their holiday sessions, but ask what’s included to be sure. You’ll want digital photographs to share with friends and extended family. Digital photos are also important for ordering holiday cards from online printers.
