Whether you want to take a few updated family Christmas photos to put in the album or you’re a big fan of sending printed christmas cards, there’s no reason why you can’t get creative and use your Christmas decorations and living room for inspiration. There are so many creative backdrops out there that you can use to make your upcoming family shoot even more fun and unique.
If you’ve been searching for family Christmas photo ideas, here are some to get you started.
Head out to the nearest tree farm. Regardless of where you live, chances are you’ll have a Christmas tree farm near you, and the beautifully shaped trees make for an excellent photo backdrop. If you are local to Belton check out The Robinson Family Farm! They don’t have a lot of trees left, but you can still pose amongst the trees or capture the process of choosing your own tree, you can’t go wrong at this location.
Make some sugar cookies. If you have some time, take a minute to dig out of all the baking supplies and make a batch of cookies. It can get messy, but it makes for some fun festive shots.
Use your Christmas tree. If you don’t want to venture too far and you have your Christmas tree up already, use it! You can shoot through it or from above or even get the reflection of your little one admiring the tree in one of the ornaments! Set up a tripod and pose in front of the tree and get some magical bokeh in the background.
Fun around the campfire. If you and your loved ones enjoy camping, head out to your favorite camping spot, build a beautiful campfire and use the woods as your backdrop.
Return to your country roots. If you have an attractive pickup truck available to you, it makes for a great photo backdrop. The best way to get some cozy photos is to put a blanket in the back and have your family cuddle up together. It would be especially eye-catching if it is red or hunter green <3
Host a cocktail party. Dust off your champagne glasses and invite some friends over for eggnog and chocolate cake. You’ll be sure to impress your guests wit these snazzy christmas cocktail party invitations. Decorate a door with some festive lights to create a fun backdrop!
Build a teepee. If your kids love building forts, take the time to build a teepee with them in the lounge and decorate it with some soft fairy lights for the perfect photo backdrop.
Find a red barn. If there’s one color that truly represents Christmas, it’s the color red, which is why a big red barn makes for the perfect Christmas photo backdrop.
No matter what style or backdrop you decide on, make sure that it represents your family’s personality to make the family Christmas photos as authentic and joyful as possible. Getting the help of a professional photographer is always a good idea for these shoots so that everyone can be completely involved in the session 😉
