Merry Christmas! Hope your day is filled with love and joy. May all your wishes come true…
Every Christmas I say to myself I would take the time to send out holiday cards and then it never happens. But now that the kids are in the picture, it’s a different story. Holiday cards have a new meaning- it’s chronicling the kids growth year after year. Zoey is at that age where she truly enjoys being creative and understands why we do certain things. Last week, Zoey helped with sending out X-mas cards to her aunts and uncles.
First things first. We had to shoot the kids and we needed a backdrop. I didn’t want anything crazy. Festive yes, but certainly not crazy. The vision was create a soft bokeh effect of white lights in the background. Executing this was fairly easy. All you’ll need are some white Christmas lights. Tape them up on a wall and shoot the subject sitting about 4 feet away from the wall.
Here’s the entire process from shooting baby holiday pics to sending off the cards. Enjoy!
