We thought it would be fun to start doing a post each night about a fun Christmas craft, recipe, family tradition and all things holly jolly. If you would like to share a craft, recipe or tradition that your family enjoys – please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We’ll possibly feature you one night this month….
Thanks to our in house photographer, Cortney Wheeler of Cortney Wheeler Photography for these fabulous photo ideas! There are so many memories and traditions to capture of our families during the Christmas Season! Instead, of “posed” pictures this years, think lifestyle. Capture your kids in action, memories you will treasure for years to come.
Cooking / Favorite Foods
Before everyone “digs in” to the delicious spread of food. Get your camera out, and photograph your favorite dishes. I love the way my Grandmother’s apple pie looks, and Aunt Karen’s yummy sweet potato casserole. You could even have some relatives hold out their dishes, and they could be in the photo with it! Then, next year create a photo book of your family’s favorite recipes to give as a gift. What better way to remember these special recipes for years to come!
Baking with the Kiddos – This would be so fun to do with your kids!
You could capture them helping stir batter, cracking eggs, their little hands using cookie cutters shapes, and licking the spoon “Oh” the list goes on!
Christmas 2012- Lets focus on the traditions and the details!
Trimming the tree, the lights, special ornaments, and kids stringing popcorn, the giggles… Wrapping and unwrapping the gifts. I always try to capture their excited faces! **If you put your camera on the sports setting, it will have a super-fast shutter, and your images shouldn’t be blurry even with the fast movements of an excited child.
