DEAR SANTA…LET US EXPLAIN; FAMILY HOLIDAY PHOTO SHOOT 2016

Its become a tradition….our annual holiday photo shoot! There’s always so much thought put into our theme for our holiday cards… and this year was a mixed bag.  I wanted our 2016 card to be fun and funny…but I also wanted some family photos that were more glammed up.

We rented a studio again because you can’t go wrong with an all-white setting.  I also wanted to capture our family hanging out in a “bedroom” with PJ’s and having a pillow fight.

The last scene shot was us in a “prison line-up.”  At the stage my kids are in right now – its all about them being naughty AND nice!  The expressions on their faces really made our Christmas card a hit!  Sharing some of my favorite photos…there were too many good ones to choose from.

Photo shoots with kids can be a bit stressful – so here are my top 10 tips for nailing an epic toddler photo shoot.  Check it out!
