As I have mentioned before, every year we send out a family Christmas card to friends and relatives. It is the one time each year we ensure that we get a nice picture together (or at least try to get one).
Because I love photography so much, we usually put this task in the hands of a professional and set up a shoot with a local photographer in October or November. That way, the photo can be used on a card in December and enjoyed for years to come.
This year we did a shoot at a local park late on a sunny October afternoon. In the summer, my brother-in-law did an engagement shoot in the location, and I loved the results. The golden light that streamed through the trees was simply gorgeous. So we booked the same photographer and location to take advantage.
I was more than thrilled with the results, so I thought I would share, in case you needed inspiration for your future family shoots.
