“What are you waiting for to advertise your family Christmas photo session on your website? Today we introduce you to 10 photographers who are already getting their first bookings.”

How to plan a family Christmas photo session full of magic?


In a family Christmas photo session the important thing is that the children have a great time. To achieve this, it is essential to dedicate some time to designing the Christmas decor for this 2022. As a recommendation, you can incorporate several elements that the children can play with into the props for the family Christmas photo session. It could be a cuddly toy to hug, ornaments to put on the tree or any other Christmas-themed toy that the children can touch.

This way, on the one hand, you will be gaining the trust of the little ones. And on the other hand, you will be able to make Christmas 2022 reports that are much more natural and that parents and other family members will love.

For family photos, you can show parents how to stand, encourage parents to give their children a kiss on the forehead, a hug or simply touch their face. It is a way of breaking the ice in these first family photos. Afterwards, the endearing situations will arise as you go along.

As an idea, you can leave a photo with just the parents. They will love the idea of having a couple’s photos without children in the middle 😉.  And to end the session, if you want to make sure they hire you again for next years’ Christmas campaigns, you can surprise them with a little Christmas gift for the kids or even some Santa-shaped biscuits. Mums love those things.

How to make your Christmas 2022 reports stand out from the rest?


If you are going to offer Christmas 2022 reports in your studio, we can’t help you much when it comes to planning it and on the Internet you can find many original ideas for Christmas decorations. However, here are a few examples:

  • Typical American fireplace with half-decorated Christmas tree.
  • Cottage where the children can look out.
  • Snowy forest including reindeer.
  • Use garlands of lights in the sessions. They will add a beautiful touch to the photographs.

What we can do is give you ideas of locations to innovate your family Christmas photo shoot this year 2022. If this year you don’t want to complicate decorating the studio, you can organise an outdoor family Christmas photo shoot. Here are some suggestions:

  • Take families on a stroll through the brightly lit streets of your city.
  • Find a Christmas market and meet them there.
  • Take them to a nearby forest and bring Christmas props, such as baubles to decorate a tree, tinsel and other decorations.
  • If you’re lucky enough to have snow forecast in your area, make the most of it and take your families to a nearby park. A snowball fight in Christmas clothes will be the perfect backdrop for these magical photographs.
  • And if snow is not expected, organise a picnic in a natural setting with the elements in shades of red, green and gold.

As you can see there are many ideas. The important thing is to try to be original every year in your family Christmas photo session and surprise your clients with fun ideas that they won’t find in other photo studios near you.

How can I sell my family Christmas photo session on my website?


When advertising your Christmas 2022 reports, it is important that you also plan a marketing strategy with the widest possible reach. Here are some ideas:

  • Get your website ready for Christmas.
  • Create publications in networks.
  • Take advantage of your blog to gain positions in Google.
  • And create paid advertisements to appear in all the places where your ideal customer is at the moment.

For these temporary campaigns, you can also use more traditional means of advertising:

  • Hand out information leaflets in shops near your studio or, for example, in children’s fashion shops.
  • Decorate the window of your Christmas studio.
  • Pay for an advertising spot.

The idea is to let all the mums and dads in the area know that you offer Christmas sessions in your photo studio.
