Christmas Photo Traditions + Holiday Photo Checklist

Each year I have a small list of must-take Christmas photos. The kids sitting on Santa’s lap, each of them wearing Santa hats & decorating the tree are all photos I try to take every year. Establishing these Christmas photo traditions and following through with them (mostly) every year has been a lot of fun, especially when looking back through photos of past Christmases and seeing how much the kids have grown.
What kind of Christmas photo traditions do you have in your family?

    I can’t remember how I stumbled across your blog, but I just have to say that I LOVE your style of photography. It’s just beautiful! I’m trying to get into photography myself and I’m definitely going to use you as inspiration. L O V E!

    Hi Rebecca,
    I was just wondering if you might be able to post or email a jpeg version of this holiday file. I was just downloading all of the other photo checklists (because they’re so awesome) and I was going to have them printed at Costco so that I don’t use all my computer ink. Thanks for considering this! Lila ([email protected])

    That’s such a great idea for a Christmas tradition! It’s my boyfriend’s and my first Christmas living together, so it’s exciting coming up with new traditions!
