Five tips for amazing Christmas photographs

Let's face it, the holiday season is hands down, the best ever! So we've gotta capture it! Read below for five tips for amazing Christmas photographs.

1- Choose a versatile location.. This season I chose to hold holiday mini sessions at Smithville Mansion. There are so many different textures and backgrounds, I could shoot there all day!

2. BYOF (bring your own flair) We came prepared with tinsel, ornaments, and Christmas lights.

3. Get sweet. It's cold outside! If you have a cutie in need of some bribing- a candy cane always helps ;)

4. Santa hats. It's okay to get silly for a couple of shots in a santa hat!

5. Sneak in a couple of non-holiday pictures. So the shots you took in your Santa hats probably won't make the cut for a canvas on the wall. Make sure you get a couple of shots sans decorations.
