There are a few themes happening including the use of the following..some are simple and some more elaborate but it doesn’t take much to give it a go.
- Christmas lights
- Candy canes
- Santa hats
- Under the tree
- In a stocking
- Cute little hats..see reindeer one above
- Christmas tree baubles
And don’t be put off by the fact that many of these are from professional photographers..here are a few tips to getting the perfect pic.
-try to find a nice well lit location preferably natural light
-try to just get a clear in focus shot
– why not lay out an unwrinkled blanket or some Xmas themed paper or table cloth for a back drop and lay the baby onto it.
– don’t forget you can edit in Instagram itself to lighten your picture and sharpen it or add any filters.
– just have some fun.
Love this idea for a sibling shot.
Good luck and have a lot of fun.. hopefully you will get some cute pics to keep of your little ones.
