Make It Fun
Add a bit of whimsy by including cute props in your holiday photo. Gather around the Christmas tree, have your little ones hold a seasonal banner, or give everyone Santa hats — anything goes. For extra credit, you can have the family pet join in on the fun! Just be sure you have a clear vision for what you'd like the photo to look like said Megan Bochette of Megan Bouchette Photography in Malta, NY. "Some people want more simple photos with the focus being on the family, while others want an elaborate Christmas set up." That will help you determine the props that make the most sense.
