How to take the best holiday pics! December 19 2014, 0 Comments

Now that the holiday season is in full swing, you’ve found yourself wanting to take holiday pics of the kids! You don’t want to risk visiting Santa, because when does that ever go to plan with the young ones? Holiday pics don’t need to be taken professionally EVERY year either so take your mind off of that one. Here are some helpful tips to ensure you get the best holiday pics for the best holiday phone case…

Know when to throw in the towel because there is no point in forcing everyone to take photos when they just aren’t in the mood to take happy holiday pics. On this note, it might make it easier on everyone if you get an assistant. Even if it’s just the neighbours cat, you might find it helps get the photo shoot over and done with quicker than you can say ‘no one wants to do this right now’. If that doesn’t work you can always try bribing them with ice-cream or a brand new phone case.

Your pictures don’t always have to be serious. Your holiday pics can be silly besides, it’s the holiday season right? Find some Christmas decorations that you have around the house and use those as props. Nothing says happy family pic more than your blow up Santa brought in next to the Christmas tree. Let the kids do what they want with the props, not to say let them rip Rudolfs nose off, but try not to control them. The more natural that the holiday pic looks, the better results you will get.

Something that is also very important is having the appropriate lighting, making sure that you only have what you want in that holiday pic and make sure your camera/ smartphone is fully charged. And with that being said, Happy Holiday Pic Taking!
