‘Tis the season to gather family photo ideas! After all, your Christmas cards won’t create themselves. To help, we’ve gathered the best family photo ideas that will make creating your Christmas cards quick and snappy (and extra merry) this year!
1. Holiday traditions
Create a truly traditional card by capturing holiday moments your family does year after year. Like picking out the tree, decorating the tree or baking holiday cookies.
2. Make a Run for it
Have the whole family make a run for it. You’ll be surprised how fun this photo idea is!
3. Laugh it out
Tell jokes and act silly to capture fun and natural family photos. Hint: tickling works well with kids of almost any age.
4. Time for a lift
Raise-up your little one to capture a sweet moment.
5. Cute Kiddos
Struggling to capture the whole family, then send out a Christmas card with just the kids on it. (They’re the cutest, anyway.)
6. Get cozy
Use a prop, like a blanket, to really warm up your family photos.
7. Those BIG moments
Use photos from your BIG moments like weddings, new babies, graduations, anniversaries, and other celebrations.
8. Fabulous Feet
Get creative and take a fun feet photo!
Take a selfie with your kiddo or cram in your whole family. Another idea: have each member of your family take a selfie and pick a card with lots of photo spots!
10. Vacation memories
Grab those photos from your family’s vacation and fill your card with them!
11. Just the two of us
Yes, it’s OK to take a photo just husband and wife. Your kids won’t be offended. Of course, you might want to make sure there’s still a photo of them on your card too.
12. Smilin’ Solo
Each child is unique. Take a photo of just them and let their personality shine.
13. Furry family member
Add the family pet. Fill a photo spot with your best pic of your furriest family member.
Kisses will make everyone have a crush on your card.
15. At play
Snap photos of the kids at play. Better yet, join in and have a friend take the pics.
16. Sun-set shot
For a trendy look, take your photos at sunset. This adds an artistic glow to your photos.
17. Touch faces
Get close and take a snapshot with your family!
18. Seasonal pics
Need just one more photo to fill your holiday card? Add a seasonal pic! Take a photo of the snow, ornaments, Christmas cookies, or hot cocoa—anything that screams Christmas.
19. Lay-back & relax
Lay down and take an aerial shot of the family.
20. Sweet smiles
Capture a nice photo of the whole family smiling sweetly.
