It’s the holiday season—arguably the most photogenic time of the year! So photogenic, in fact, that it can feel a little overwhelming trying to capture everything and trying not to forget any shots. Therefore, to help, I created a holiday photo guide to help you organize what to shoot and give you some inspiration for shots that you might not have thought about. And, having spent many Christmases growing up in Hawaii and California, where there is zero snow, I have tried to make this list inclusive for all seasons and terrains. This list is not in any particular order, and you definitely don’t have to complete the entire thing—but please tag us with #LensbabyHolidays so we can see what you create!
And don’t forget; the most important part of the holidays is enjoying them and being in the moment, even if that means putting your camera down. I know, if you didn’t get a picture, did it even happen?? I promise you, it did.
