DIY Christmas Photoshoot.

I absolutely love taking photos of Archie especially during the festive season. They make great photos to put on the front of a Christmas card or even on in a frame as a gift. Both sets of Callum’s Grandparents and Great Grandparents love receiving a framed photo of Archie at Christmas.

I thought I would show you some of the photos I have taken of Archie this Christmas and how I got the shots.

I am by no means a photographer and my images are by no means perfect. I just try my best with what I’ve got and see what the end result comes out like.

To start with you need a decent background. This could be a plain background so that you can add decorations around it or it can be a ‘busy’ background such as in front of the Christmas tree. This year we decided to use a plain white background but last year we used the tree. For our background I used a white table with fair lights stuck round it and a white blanket on the floor.


Once you’ve got a background, establish what kind of props you need and how you want the photo to look. I decided to put Archie in a wrapped box for some photos and have him just sat down for others.

For this look I simply just wrapped up a box, put a light box in and a teddy Father Christmas. Popped a hat on Archie’s head and there we have it. It really couldn’t be more simple.

Before lighting was adjusted and shot was cropped.

We had so much fun taking these photos. Unfortunately I caught Archie at a bad time so he wanted  a nap and there was a lot of bribery with chocolate buttons. If you take some Christmas photos of your littles this year then please tag me in them so I can see how yours turned out.

Thanks for reading. Love Tilly & Archie xx
