Snapping the Perfect Picture for Your Christmas Cards

It can be a lot of pressure to create the perfect Christmas card each year—especially when your family decides to try a Christmas Photo card! Here are some helpful tips to capture the perfect image for the perfect cards!

-Pay attention to the size of the photo, as many Christmas Photo card creators require a minimum/maximum for you image specs.

-Be aware of your background. Give thought to where you want to take your photo. Don’t overlook a mess or a clashing color in the background.

-Take multiple shots! This way you have a few options to choose from, or you can even Photoshop everyone’s best picture together to create a masterpiece!

-Think of a unifying theme for your picture.  Whether it’s clothing, colors, or a vibe, consider adhering to a specific theme as a group. Committing to a group theme might look more put-together or polished than if the photo is haphazard. You can control the direction of your Christmas Photo card with just a little forethought.

-Put it all together with the same attention to detail that you took the photo with. Make selections like the card stock, border of photo, and message inside. . .with the outside in mind. This will make the Christmas Card feel complete.

  1. I find using a shutter shot (multiple shots at once) is best to snap that purrrrrfect pic of your pets or your quick and fussy kids

  2. Thank you for this list. I like the photo mount for this because you can have Happy Holidays written nicely below the frame.

  3. Yes, so important to pay attention to the background!! I hate when people overlook this – then it turns into a game of I-Spy and I’m not looking at their beautiful family!

  4. These are great tips! Taking a good photo should be easier with everyone having amazing cameras on hand at all times.
