Take a photo each year in the same pose or location; it’s such a fun way to look back and see how people grow and change through the years. We have a yearly tradition of taking the kids’ photos wearing santa hats. I just love seeing how the kids have grown each year when I look back through these photos.
3. Get in on the Action
The magic of Christmas is all in the details. Don’t forget to snap a few photos of the little things that make Christmas special to you. Crop in close and let the little details take center stage—from treats baking to holiday décor to piles of Christmas cards received in the mail.
Don’t forget to take a minute, while capturing your Christmas in photos, to showcase the family traditions that make your holidays special: those new Christmas jammies, Christmas morning breakfast, whatever it is you do each year without fail throughout the holidays. These are the details of Christmas that are rich in memories, and they definitely deserve a place in your photo albums.
