Here’s some inspiration for holiday family photos

The end of the year is quickly approaching and it’s time to plan your family photos. Today I’m sharing indoor and outdoor holiday family photo inspiration for your holiday photo shoot.

Why do you take family photos?

Our family takes professional holiday photos every November to use for Christmas cards, create gifts for family, and to hang in our home. I love to have a photo to represent how our family has grown and changed over the year, too.

I enjoy planning outfits for family photos and choosing a new location for the photo shoot every year. We have taken our holiday photos in various local parks, in our home, and even at a farm. We usually hire a professional photographer, but once asked a friend to take our family photos too.

How to Find Holiday Family Photo Inspiration

Each year we try to take different photos, but it can be stressful to think of new ways to pose your family. Thankfully, our photographer is always helpful.

Shopping for holiday photo props is lots of fun whether you visit a store or look right in the decoration boxes in your home.

Props add another level to a holiday family photo session and can entertain little kids.

Looking for photo prop suggestions? Try using a plaid blanket, twinkly lights, a letter board, festive garland, a Santa Sack, a teepee, or even a Christmas tree in your family photos!
