Looking At The Tree

You’ve probably taking the traditional holiday pictures where you stand in front go the tree. But try taking pictures of you looking at the tree.

Through Your Christmas Tree

All Cozy Together In Bed

Looking for a cozy shoot location? Stay in bed! You can either go for a festive red and green theme, with decorations on the headboard and Santa clause pillows. Or you could do a winter white/nude, modernized shoot in the bed.
