Every year people rush to have portraits taken sometime in the fall or flock to find Christmas mini sessions so they can have a nice image to send out for a Christmas or New Year’s card. It’s a lovely idea sharing your best photos with friends and family. But then what? Most people don’t seem to do anything with them after that. The outfits they wore for the photography session last longer than the portraits if all you do is use them for a seasonal card. Print your portraits to make the most out of your Christmas mini sessions and make your memories last.
Aside from giving small gifts prints to relatives or creating ornaments with them why not decorate your home with them?
If you have guests coming for Christmas decorate your guest room to make things merry. A trio of prints above the bed with mini stockings or a wreath on the bed frame is a great way for them to enjoy a little Christmas spirit.
Deck the hallways with a Christmas portrait. I’ve seen people use wrapping paper to cover up their summer portraits for the season. Instead of covering them up, exchange it for the season. Select your favorite Christmas print and put it up in the hallway or entry way to greet friends when they come in the door. Who can resist a favorite portrait of your pooch by the tree?
Decorate your own bedroom. Some people use small trees to decorate their bedrooms. I live in a house that’s over a hundred years old, there’s no room for a tree. But, the one thing I can do is hang a portrait of my favorite pup above my bed.
Having a Christmas feast? Decorate your dinning room with portraits from those holiday mini sessions. They will make any feast more festive and you’ll have something that will last longer than that floral piece on the table.
Seasonal portraits are a great way to decorate your home for the holidays. You don’t have to water them, vacuum up the dead pine needles, or polish the sap off the table. It’s a simple easy way to make your home look beautiful and feel welcoming for the holidays. Canvas, metals, and framed prints are easy to take down and store the rest of the year too. Treat them gently and you’ll have timeless holiday decor that will last for generations.
If you’re still in need of a portrait session for you and your pet we have one more date left for our Christmas mini sessions email us for more information.
