The Top 5 Tips and Ideas for Last Minute Christmas Photos


Can you believe it? Christmas is almost here.

While you might not be ready for the season to be here, purchasing gifts, making plans, and getting your Christmas cards out are definitely top priority now. But wait – what’s that? Did you say you haven’t taken your Christmas photos yet?

Don’t worry! You aren’t the only one who forgets about holiday photos until closer to the holiday. We’re all so incredibly busy the rest of the year; it’s easy to forget.

I want to take a look at some excellent ideas for last minute Christmas photos to give you the chance to get gorgeous ones as soon as possible.

5 Ideas for Your Last Minute Christmas Photos

What are these great ideas? Here are a few: 

  1. Make it Relaxing and Fun by Heading to the Beach

Not all holiday photos need to be particularly festive, especially now that the temps are warming up. A great way to have fun taking your last minute Christmas photos is to head to the beach with your family and spend time outdoors. It will be a relaxing shoot, and you’ll adore the photos you get. You can wear festive clothes; though make sure you don’t wear anything that will be too warm. 

  1. Keep Things Cool and Comfortable

As I said above, you don’t want to wear anything that will be too warm for your last minute photos. Make sure you dress in light, comfortable clothing that breathes easy.

You can always wear clothes that are in classic Christmas colours such as reds and greens, and adding a summery twist to your photos can make them gorgeous and unique. 

  1. Shoot Indoors for a More Festive Shoot

If you want a truly festive photo shoot, then it is best to take your last minute Christmas photos indoors. This way, you can wear your favourite holiday sweaters or clothing to make the photos feel cosy.

  1. Decorate Earlier for Your Photos

When it comes to getting last minute photos, decorating a bit earlier is completely acceptable. This way, when you get your photos taken indoors, you can capture your decorations in the photographs. This will help add that beautiful, festive touch that you want in your family portraits, and you’ll be proud to send them out to all of your friends and family for the season. 

  1. You Don’t Have to Have Fun Props, but They Work Well

Adding adorable props can also help when it comes to last minute Christmas photos. You don’t need any, but if you have some favourite Christmas decorations or toys, then add them to your photos. However, if you don’t have time to locate the props, don’t worry. You can always get next year’s Christmas photos taken during the winter months and add your props then.
