St. Augustine Portrait Photographer: Holiday Cards

Can you believe that the holiday season officially begins in just 3 months? Don’t panic though, we’ve been hard at work listening to Christmas music and finding our holiday inspiration despite the Florida summer in order to create holiday cards options for you ahead of time! If you haven’t booked your family portrait session yet, now is the best time to do it! Remember, it’s always best to be ahead of the game rather than trying to squeeze in a session two weeks before Christmas and hoping that you can get the cards out in time (it’s okay, we’ve all been there).

We know that coordinating family holiday portraits can be a little stressful, so we have some tips to help make the whole process a little easier! First of all, you want yourself and your family to be comfortable and confident in whatever you choose to wear, and you want it to compliment the setting that you’ll be in. Speaking of setting, consider what works best for you and your family. If you love the beach, then a beach session may be perfect for your holiday card! If you prefer a more traditional setting, your Christmas tree or holiday decor make the perfect back drop! Another element to consider is props. You don’t want to include too many elements, which may crowd the photo, so talk with your photographer before hand and figure out what the most important props are to you, and how you can incorporate them into your portrait!

Check out our card samples below. We used a few of our favorites from last year’s mini sessions.

1. Ornate:

This card is both elegant and classy, and only requires one portrait. It makes a great display and will leave a lasting impression on all of your friends and family!
