Christmas Photos - Reinvented in 2021
Despite the challenges that 2020 has delivered, there’s plenty of ways to capture great Christmas photos this year. Find out how you can continue your festive traditions in a memorable, magical and safe, albeit slightly different, way this year.
When we think of Santa photos, we typically imagine children huddled on Santa’s lap, with parents constantly reminding the kids to smile, or trying to convince them its all ok and to stop crying or nagging them to stop tugging at their clothes. Ahhh, the memories! With the current circumstances in our communities - across the country and across the globe - it's safe to say that we're not going to see any warm Santa cuddles or high-fives this year. But just because some of those special moments can't happen, it doesn't mean that there can't be any precious Christmas photos memories this year.
In fact, whether we like it or not, 2020 will forever be the year that we reinvented the time old tradition of Santa photos. There's a variety of ways that you can still capture your family in a photo this extra-special Christmas, it just takes a little creativity and thinking outside the box. One thing is for sure, however you decide to go about it, this year’s photos are sure to be especially memorable.
Dressing the family in matching festive outfits and ushering the kids into a shopping centre Santa Photo simply may not be an option for some parents this year. Rather than focusing on the disappointment of not getting your usual shots taken, look at this unprecedented time as an opportunity to create new family traditions. There are many Creative Christmas Family Photo Ideas you can use to make and capture your own magical Christmas memories.
Almost everyone these days has a phone they can capture images on and it's become pretty clear that you don't necessarily have to be a professional photographer to take a great photo. Dress up your children or pets in their best Christmas outfits and Santa hats and then get the camera ready. Utilise the environment around you by taking family photos in front of the Christmas tree, out the front of your house or at your favourite park or beach. You could even involve “Santa” by getting a family member to dress up as the jolly guy in the big red suit!
Christmas is often a time we spend with family and friends, and though we may not be able to see some loved ones this year, we can still let them know we are thinking about them and share some Christmas cheer their way. Personalized pillow covers, metal prints or even face coverings make thoughtful gifts and are small enough to post. Simply upload your favorite photos and we create wonders!
Taking photos during Christmastime is a wonderful way to make Christmas a magical time for the whole family. Even though your festive activities and traditions may be a little different this year than what you’re used to, that doesn't mean they will be any less special.
