At Home Holiday Photo Session

When you think of the holiday season, a thousand memories can come flooding in. Smells, sights and sounds all remind us of Christmas past and present. And when you become a parent there becomes an extra magic to the season. Seeing Christmas through the eyes of a child allows you to remember the magic in the midst of the busyness.

An at home holiday photo session is a way to say, “let’s stop and breathe in the magic of this season.” The session might feel a bit chaotic and crazy but the pictures will be totally priceless. You are making memories together and will have a way to remember them for many years to come.

What to do for an at home holiday photo session?

So many different things we can do! We can make cookies, dance around the Christmas tree, make hot cocoa and you can read your favorite holiday books. It’s like a regular at home session but just with a holiday theme! Take photos in every day clothes and switch to pajamas to take pictures by the tree. I really encourage you to forget a formal session and make it relaxed and cozy.

At home holiday photo sessions are not just to have fun photos to share online but to have photos for your kids to cherish one day. You know how the Christmas season can feel like it just rushes by and you never get to breathe. You wonder at the end what did you actually do? But then the next year rolls around and your kids start naming all the traditions they want to make sure happen again this year. And when you do an holiday photo session at home you can actually have photographic evidence of the things you did. 🙂

So skip the stuffy formal Christmas photos and do a session that not only catches your memories but also makes a memories. Two wins!

  1. Really love that first photo of the baby sitting on the counter in her beautiful red dress and completely covered in flour. Priceless. This family will forever cherish these images.
