It almost seems like it happened overnight, but it only takes one brisk fall morning to remind you that we are knee deep into autumn. The days are getting shorter and shorter and although (last time I checked) there are still 24 hours in a day, it’s a little bit difficult to stay motivated when you have less daylight to work with and cram everything in that needs to be done. Make the most of your time by planning ahead for your holiday season. Crossing some things off your Santa to-do list can only make your life in the ensuing weeks that much easier.
One of the most treasured things we do during the holidays is take family pictures and portraits. It’s fun to reflect back on family gatherings and holidays from days gone by and these events are recorded for posterity through our family photograph collections. Inevitably with Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, you will be taking plenty of family photos and will be recording your very own personal history for future generations to come. We have a few ideas to give your family pictures some extra panache and festive holiday style this year that you won’t want to miss out on!
With all the relatives gathering for a Thanksgiving meal and obviously many pictures being snapped in the process, why not dress up the family in some appropriate holiday attire? We have many costumes that are perfect for any Thanksgiving celebration. Pilgrim costumes as well as Native American costumes will accentuate your holiday and put your entire family in a festive mood. And as for the pictures that will follow--well, with authentic looking Thanksgiving apparel on some or all of your family members--this years Thanksgiving is likely to go down in your family history as one to be remembered. You may even start some new traditions of your own!
While we are on the subject, be sure to start thinking about those Christmas pictures you are going to want as well. Perhaps you want to take an extra special picture for your Christmas card or just want to capture your children’s excitement on film when they get a visit from Santa Claus. You can easily recreate all of these special holiday moments if you wear one of our amazing Santa Claus suits. Even if you don’t have children around, what a great Christmas card picture it would make to have your sweetie dressed in full Santa attire and you dressed up as one of his very sweet and sexy helpers, or even as Mrs. Claus herself.
Plan now to make your upcoming holidays as special as possible and make sure you have the photos to keep those memories alive. Using costumes as well as holiday themed accessories will add character as well as originality to your celebrations and will make this year’s family gathering the one everyone really talks about for years to come.
