Christmas Portraits - Celebrate Family This Christmas

Christmas is a time when families gather together, and it’s the perfect time to plan a family portrait.

Even if you’re only together for a few days, it’s possible to plan a portrait session either just before or just after the big day. The perfect way to capture the memory of you and your loved ones together for the holidays.

Here’s a tip for a wonderful family portrait

Having the family together is so special, and here are some ways to make your portrait just as special:

  • Try to co-ordinate what everyone is wearing. That doesn’t mean you all have to match, even deciding on a color palette can work.
  • Try to avoid clothing with patterns (except perhaps in the case of a single elderly relative who might be central to the shot) 
  • If children will be in the shot try to schedule your session for a time when the children will be happy
  • Miko Photography is now taking bookings for December, and we can arrange your shoot for as close to Christmas as December 23rd or 27th.
  • Call (403)451-9769 or email info@mikophotography.com to book your session now!

Wishing you all a safe and warm December!

'til next time,

P.S. Don’t delay – the sessions closer to Christmas Day fill up fast.

How to make your family portrait more special this Christmas

A Merry Christmas starts with family … and there’s no better way to send a smile to your loved ones than with Family Portrait Christmas Cards.

Here’s a Tip for a Great Christmas Portrait…

Think about the things that define your family and consider working those into your portrait. And have some fun with it … a little family chaos is entertaining and authentic:

  • · If your 7-year old is known for his goofy faces, then let him make one. If your 9 year old twins bicker all the time, why not have them play-fighting in the shot?
  • · If you have a favorite Christmas movie, perhaps you could dress up as characters from the movie. Or if your family loves to cook together, how about adding to your outfits with matching oven mitts.
When you personalize your shoot, you’ll end up with a portrait that is unique and special. So go ahead, get creative - talk with your photographer about interesting ways to personalize your photo session this year.

But remember, if traditional is more your style, a classic family portrait is always a beautiful way to send holiday greetings.

At Miko Photography we’re already booking Christmas photography sessions – and whether you go for fun or classic, we’d love to help you make your family portrait special.

Check out the samples below and call (403)451-9769 or email
info@mikophotography.com to book your session now!
Wishing everyone a lovely finish to fall!
