With the holidays around the corner, many families throughout New Jersey and New York wish to capture their precious newborns and adorable toddlers with a personalized family portrait on their holiday cards.

Behind The Lens: How To Capture Flawless Family Portraits For The Holidays
Pick A Favorite Location
When capturing family portraits for your holiday cards, think of some of your favorite places to take your family. Perhaps there’s a place that invokes the spirit of Christmas, or that features the colors of your preferred holiday. From classic red fire stations and enchanting apple orchards to community Christmas tree displays, the possibilities are endless.
Choose Your Favorite Season
Do you prefer the festive feel of a winter wonderland, crisp fall foliage, warm summer sea breezes, or wildflowers in the springtime? Choose a time of year that brings joy to your family to make your portraits come alive.
Schedule The Right Time
Don’t plan your photo session right after work, PTA meetings, soccer practices, or a stressful list of errands, as your anxiety might shine through in the photos. Also, decide what time of day you want to meet your photographer—sunrise and sunset tend to be popular for family photography.
Strike A Pose
If you have energetic kids, it can be tough to get the perfect shot, but it’s not impossible. Natural, less formal poses where your children are free to be themselves tend to result in better photos. You can also use a musical instrument or a small toy to grab the attention of little ones.
