Gentry CA Christmas Card
Christmas may be three months away, but I've already started dreaming up our family's Christmas card! I absolutely love Christmas time and capturing my family's growth and change throughout the year! I've compiled a list of my go-to tips for creating awesome family photos that you're sure to love for years to come!

One
Keep it festive: There is nothing cuter than a family in coordinating/matching clothes, accessories, or PJ's! I am totally considering using our Gentry California Monogrammed Pajamas for this year's photos!
Two
Add your family's personality: Let the kids sign their names, draw little photos, add stickers, or use fun metallic pens to address your cards.

Three
Don't strive for perfection: Posed photos are really sweet, but candid photos can be awesome too! Capturing the "in between" moments put an fun twist on the traditional Christmas card. 
Four
Lighting is key: Natural lighting and outside backgrounds provide the best set-up for family portraits. The natural lighting is not as harsh, and let's be honest, makes everyone in the photos look ah-mazing. And if you have Fall leaves or snow in the background, bonus!
Five 
Props can be fun: A strand of Christmas lights, plaid blankets for the kids, or even evergreen leaves can add another unique and fun dimension to your photos.
