Tips for creating the perfect Holiday Pictures: 

  1. Choose a location with natural scenery for the best lighting and backgrounds or use your home as a backdrop.
  2. Be comfortable in what you choose to wear. I remember all of our family pictures were always done in white shirts and khaki pants and we all complained the whole time! Instead, choose a color scheme and incorporate different shades. This give everyone more flexibility and allows them to love what their wearing, in turn making them more comfortable behind the camera.
  3. Bring in some help with staging. WE CAN HELP! Whether you choose to get pictures done with a full set up like this one, or your family gathered around a vintage couch, we are here to help the setup and staging process easy for you.
  4. Find a professional photographer. Many photographers around the holidays will host “mini sessions” for discounted costs so you’re not breaking the bank. Hiring a professional will ensure that your getting the desired pictures and you’ll pictures to cherish. Opposed to a cell phone picture you can’t even enlarge for your home!
  5. HAVE FUN –¬†Embrace the silliness

Homemade Bride – DIY Christmas Advent Calendar

There are a million ways to put together a custom DIY advent calendar..but my favorite way to decorate in my house is to head down to the garage and see what I can find in the mess. Today I was able to find an old Coca-Cola case which makes the PERFECT base for my calendar.

Advent Calendar 2

I’m a love us rustic finds and this Coca-Cola crate was screaming for some color. I’m obsessed with how the red ornaments enhance the coloring of the type on the side and to think… these ornaments were just left over after decorating the tree!

The last step I took was to add a glitter number to each ornament as the days counted down.
