Even though the upcoming holiday season may not be filled with family gatherings in the traditional sense, you can still be together in spirit by sharing your annual family portrait via holiday cards. I don’t know about you but I love receiving holiday cards from family and friends, especially those that I rarely get to see!
Here are 4 easy ways to make sure your holiday cards are sent out on time and hassle free!
Choose your holiday: I know when people think of the holidays, Christmas mostly comes to mind, but let’s not forget that there are other holidays to celebrate! You could start with Thanksgiving or end with New Years. To take it one step further, you could simply celebrate the different seasons or wait or choose holidays such as Valentines Day or Easter!
Plan ahead: If you’re like me, the holiday season always seem to sneak up on me. By the time I’m in the true holiday spirit, the holiday is one week away, which doesn’t give me time to plan or execute anything. So make sure to stay mindful of today's date! Decide when you want the cards to be on site, then, count at least 2-4 weeks backwards and whatever date you land on, is the date you should have images in hand ready to be mailed.
Choose your images: This one comes in handy if you already took your annual portraits! Simply choose from your portrait session gallery and select one, or two, or three (why recreate the wheel?). To be on the safe side, choose 4 good images mixing horizontal and vertical images, and pop them into your favorite custom designed template!
Find a photographer:This may seem like a daunting task, but in actuality the holday season is the best time to get portraits taken because there are plenty of photographers offering mini sessions during this time. Simply google the term "mini session" for your local area, and that should help jump start your journey. Mini sessions are a great time to try a photographer you’ve been thinking about working with. And the good part about that is- it’d be at a discounted price! If you're still not sure about mini session, check out my blog on understanding the difference between mini's and full portrait sessions.
