If you didn’t already know by now, I love Christmas!! I have always felt this is a magical time of year and I like to remember it! What better way, than with our very own Christmas Photo Shoot. With the price of Santa photos so high these days, and you really only get one or two pictures, I wanted to do something, well, a little more! Instead of paying someone else a lot of money to take photos of my kids, I figured I could just give it a go myself. With enough props and the right outfits I figured I was sure to get at least a couple nice photos to remember Christmas 2017.

Where else to look for inspiration, but my favourite place…Pinterest of course! Oh the myriad of photos and ideas that can be found on good ol’ pinterest. I gathered all my ideas and came up with a couple ideas, mostly for props and the over all look I wanted to achieve. I decided to go for a natural look and I have a couple of places at home that I could achieve this. I just needed a decent spot with a nice backdrop. Well I set it all up on one of our outdoor spaces all to find that the sun was bothering the kids and they were all squinty. I was beyond frustrated but determined to not just toss the idea out all together, I put my thinking cap on again and decided to move everything to my front deck. There was enough timber around to give that natural look I was going for. I might have to do some editing but it would be ok.

I decided to do some with Christmas props and some without, so it would also be an updated photo of all the boys. I also got them all to jump in Christmas clothes right at the end and do some fun ones with our Christmas hats and sun glasses. Once we all calmed down after the initial freak out and location issue, the kids all had fun and especially enjoyed the milk and cookies.

Honestly, I’m over the moon with the results. I did actually take a lot more than what is in this post, but these are my favourites of them all. I think these photos will be cherished for years to come. Hopefully I can manage to update them again next Christmas!
