The Holidays are coming! Let’s do those Family Portraits!

Family Portraits for gifts

I know the summer has just ended, so talking about the holidays that will come sooner than later seems crazy. However, the likes of Walgreen’s or CVS is reminding us as well! This actually is the time to start thinking and acting on taking family portraits. If you are interested in sending them as cards, then the time to do decide the location and set a date is now. But, if your plan is to use them in a card then this allows for setting a date, choosing the location, reviewing and selecting and then doing the selecting and sending for the card to get out in time. Now, if your plan is for gifts, then you have a bit more time.

The Choices for Family Portraits

Now that you have decided to do them, the next thing is to set a date and location. I know this time of year starts to get crazy for everyone but if you can spare 45 minutes to an hour, you will have a number of images to choose from. The images included in this post are just a small sample of what we got in one hour. These images were taken at Baker Beach which has so many options in just one place. The locations in the Bay Area though are limitless!

So make the decision to just set the date and a location. Get the kids clothes and of course the dog can come too! Then we just have some fun and make the memories you get to share.

  1. Set the date.
  2. Set the location.
  3. Decide the wardrobe, look and feel.
  4. Go shopping!
  5. Show up and be present!
  6. Select your image options and prints.
  7. Send the cards!
  8. Give the gifts!
  9. Eat, drink and be merry.
