Merry & Bright Photo Shoot (How to Build a Fun Holiday Photo)

With the holidays approaching, it was time for a holiday photo shoot with baby.

I wanted something special and sparkly, so I turned to Pinterest for inspiration. I wasn’t disappointed. I created the above image with some simple supplies and props, and one cute baby.

I used painters tape to take a strand of mini twinkle lights to the wall in a loose zig zag design. I taped a plain white sheet up over that with more painters tape. I did take the time to iron the sheet, as wrinkes can mess up the nicest of photos. You can clearly see the wrinkles in the part of the sheet I didn’t bother to iron. I just made sure I ironed the part that would actually be in my final photos. After this, I added a vintage light up ceramic tree and an adorable baby.

Add in a bunch of funny faces and sounds to make baby smile, a little help from daddy, and photograph liberally. Voila!

I used a photo from this shoot for our Christmas card this year, and I got so many other cute ones to share with family. Did you take your own holiday photos this year, or did you hire someone to do the job?
