With Thanksgiving coming up later this week, the holiday season will soon be in effect. Our family loves sending out holiday cards since it’s a great excuse to get everyone dressed up, and also, why pass up the opportunity to match your dress to the card? Getting that perfect family picture takes some planning, especially if you have young children, so I thought I’d share some tips for you:

• Research for a photographer and if needed, ask if s/he has experience photographing young children. Look at his/her portfolio to see if the style matches with your vision. Also, it make also give you some ideas on locations or set-ups you’d like to replicate as well.

• Check the weather forecast since you don’t want to be outdoors when it’s raining! If you have kids, try to schedule the session earlier in the day. Not-so-tired kids makes for better pictures!

• Look around to see what type of holiday card you might want to get. Will it require a portrait or landscape orientation, or does it require multiple photos? That way you can communicate with your photographer your goals for the shoot

• Have fun! You get to spend time with your family and it’ll be a fun time to reflect on once you get your photos back
