But it doesn’t always turn out as idyllic as you pictured. Kids cry, bicker and lose interest. Soon that cute photo you had in mind, isn’t so cute after all. Tiffany from Peanut Blossom does a great annual post about “How Not to Take a Christmas Card Photo”. Her posts crack me up! She is so candid about what works and what doesn’t, so if you’re looking for some great tips, check out her posts: Year One, Year Two, Year Three, Year Four.
One of my personal favourite Kids Christmas photo setups, is of a kid tangled up in the lights. (Reminds me of when I used to have to manually put up the lights before the wonderful invention of pre-lit trees).
You can have a cute baby in awe of them…
…or of a pair of trouble makers all tangled up.
And just because you don’t have kids, doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the Christmas photos with your pooches too!
