We wanted to capture some fun photos of the kids to go in our annual Christmas Cards – we decide to set up a DIY mini studio at home. We used a room that was full of natural light and strung some Christmas Lights over a white sheet.
We stood back and zoomed in the focus to achieve a slightly blurry background.
We had some fun with some props – two large Candy Canes joined together to make a heart, Christmas outfits including Santa Hats and a funny ‘Return to Santa’ sign.
The best tip we can give you to get some great sibling shots…HAVE FUN! We made sure the kids were well fed, rested and relaxed before we commenced the ‘shoot’. We then asked them to tell us funny stories, asked them what was on their Christmas List for Santa, if they could remember all the reindeer names etc.
The best smiles you will ever capture are the natural ones 🙂
We hope this inspires you to make a home studio and take some FUN photos with your kids.
