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.
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
