Christmas is one of the biggest Holidays where families are having their children’s pictures taken to remember when they were small. This also means that it’s one of the busiest times for photography studios to capture these images and sell to their clients.
I wanted to include a post to share 30 Christmas Picture Ideas that you can try or use as inspiration for the upcoming holidays.
These portraits were created over a 3 year period for our Digital Creation’s Club and have been used all over the world. I hope you enjoy looking through these Christmas pictures and get some ideas for the upcoming season.

Bonus Idea: If you can get Santa to come to your studio for the day and have Children sit on his lap for some pictures…that would get some interest. We created this in a Digital Background and called it “Better Not Pout”.
OK…so there’s the list of 30 Christmas picture Ideas.
You will notice that there’s a variety of unique props and backgrounds to give each picture that Christmas feel and look. These are pretty important for these type of shots, but you don’t have to do them all at once.
Also, pay attention to the clothing and posing that also help make these portraits even better. Clothing selection is huge and can make or break your shots. You always want to educate your clients on what and what not to wear.
BOOKMARK THIS PAGE to use as inspiration or you can PIN the pics you want to add to your Pinterest Boards.
As I said earlier, these images were created and offered to our Digital Creation’s club, but you could find similar props and backgrounds and create your own studio version very easily. It will be expensive, but will pay off after one season of Christmas Sessions.
But, if you would rather use our Digital Creations and start offering these as soon as tomorrow…Click Here to check out the club.
I hope you enjoyed these images and you take some of these ideas and use them in your next Christmas portrait session.
Here’s to your SUCCESS!
