1) SET THE STAGE

First, decide exactly you want to take a photo of. A family shot? Your lovely tree and lounge in all its Christmassy glory? Use whatever type of photo you like, but you’ll probably want to think about capturing something that looks warm, wintry and seasonal.

2) GATHER YOUR PROPS

Next, if you really want to take this shoot seriously, you need to decide if you want to feature any props. If you’re planning on taking a group shot of yourself and the family, you may want to include some festive Santa hats for some extra festive fun!

3) GET THE LIGHTING RIGHT

Lighting is critically important if you’re going to capture the perfect photo – especially if it’s going to feature on the front of your Christmas Cards. Try using a more ambient light source to avoid red eyes from the flash. Fairy lights and candles are great for this. Plus, they’re super cosy and festive!

4) HAVE FUN

Last but by no means least, the most important step – HAVE FUN! Capturing the perfect photo for your Personalised Christmas Card shouldn’t be a chore. Get the family together, get into the Christmas spirit and have a laugh. Re-create and capture your favourite moments and milestones from the year. Turn on the Christmas songs and get the mince pies out to get into the festive spirit. Or, make it a weekend project and capture some wonderful festive snaps of your favourite wintery locations.

Create Yours

Christmas is the perfect opportunity to take some of your most memorable photos. Cards make perfect keepsakes for your loved ones. So why not tie the two together? All you need is a camera (or even a smartphone!) and maybe the odd prop.
