Kitschy Christmas Card Shoot!

Fall is a great time to do family portraits– many people like to include them in an annual holiday card of course… As a professional photographer I offer these services and often shoot families in the park or at their home– but RARELY do i get to do something as hilarious and fun as this conceptual shoot I did this past weekend.  Addie wanted a family portrait shoot that would be reminiscent of those Sears-style portrait sessions, but to play up the kitsch factor with a bunch of 80’s Christmas sweaters and deck everyone out to the hilt in holiday accessories, poodles included! This concept was a lot of fun to execute and the family came prepared and enthusiastic…  I love the shots below and I had fun playing with the tonalities and contrast to re-create a 1960’s postcard look for a few of them– borders and all!
