6 Photos you Need to take on Christmas Morning [ A Photographer's Weigh in ]

Anticipation, excitement, twinkling lights and squeals of delight are some of the sights and sounds on Christmas morning.  

It's usually a time when the family is snuggled in close; actually getting along... (for the most part), and adults are practically giddy with excitement themselves!  These are the moments we have looked forward to for MONTHS.  These are the moments that need to be captured... the moments you wish time would pause for just a little while longer.

This is where photos come in, of course!  Below, I have a list of 6 photos you NEED to take on Christmas morning.  More than 6 photos will no doubt be taken, but please don't forget these! 

Christmas morning wake-up.  If you have young kids in the house and are anything like mine, they'll be piled in your bed, poking you, jumping around, and trying to shake you awake.  Use this moment to grab them, give them a good tickle and then snap a pic of everyone in bed.  (Bed-heads and all.  This is real life, people!)  *…

Edwards Family Portraits Displayed, Millbank Ontario

A few years back, I posted a family portrait session that took place at Edwards Family Organics farm in Millbank, Ontario.  It's time I showed you the finished products hanging on their walls.  Having them hung and ready to enjoy is certainly one of the most exciting parts of the whole experience with Life and Love Photography, however we certainly had a lot of fun on our session day as well.  To see the images from this session, click here.

At our Planning Session, we decided that canvas was the best option to hang on their family room walls.  This is mostly due to the fact that they are durable and will not break.  With a house full of energetic boys, having random objects flying through the air is always a possibility!  

36" x 24" durable canvas hung above the sofa in the family room.

Pictured below, is a cluster of canvases that measures 34" x 24" in total size above the sofa.
This is a great way to showcase a variety of images taken during a family session. The nice thing about this display is that you will have the option to swap out an image or two for an updated canvas from a more recent session with me!

Four individual canvases clustered together above the sofa. 
This is a wonderful way to showcase a variety of images from a portrait session.
