Christmas card pictures on Christmas photo greeting cards are often hit or miss. Sometimes, the right setting or outfits can make a great Christmas card picture, but a bad location or horrible matching outfits can ruin it. Christmas card pictures with your family in front of the fireplace or Christmas tree are great, but why not get a little more creative this year? Creative Christmas card pictures make your Christmas photo greeting card stand out from the rest, and give your friends and family a bit of entertainment while they open their mail. A few fun and creative Christmas card picture ideas include underwater family shots (using an underwater camera, of course); Christmas card pictures on the beach or anywhere that has nothing to do with Christmas and winter; Christmas card pictures with everyone in your family playing a different role (like your youngest child as the parent and vice-versa); candid Christmas card pictures when your family is acting natural as opposed to posing; Christmas card pictures with everyone making funny faces; Christmas card pictures taken from the ground or another angle instead of straight on; or anything else you can think of.
Christmas card pictures are not the easiest to compose, especially with large groups or young children with short attention spans. Plan ahead; scout out your location in advance so you know exactly where to go, and choose outfits for everyone to wear. Coordinate colors, but do not have everyone wear the exact same clothes, as it takes away from individual personalities in your family or group. When it is time to shoot the Christmas card pictures, start by placing the anchor of the shot, usually the oldest person or head of household. Arrange everyone else around him or her, balancing the height and bodies on either side. Place kids in the photo last so they only have to remain in place for a few minutes at most. If you are shooting your Christmas card pictures outside, bring a blanket, chairs, or something to sit on so you do not get your nice clothes wet or dirty. Say, "cheese!" and have the photographer take several versions of each shot so you have a choice for your favorite Christmas card pictures. Once you have your favorite Christmas card pictures chosen, upload them to your account and create your custom Christmas photo greeting cards. Be sure to order extra for those people you forgot or to save as keepsakes each year.
