How I Take My Blogmas Photos

How I Take My Blogmas Photos

Before embarking on blogmas I had no clue how I was going to make my pictures all Christmassy and really didn’t want to rely on stock images all month. Because of this I took to twitter and got some advice! Turns out it’s actually super easy to do and you don’t have to rely on having good flat lay skills (thank god!!).

Props…

You can make any photo festive with the right props! For someone who didn’t own any Christmas decorations this meant a shopping trip and who am I to say no to that! All I knew is that I wanted to go for a sparkly pastel sort of theme, I wasn’t really sure how I was going to achieve this. But low and behold Wilko answered my prayers! With three different sizes of baubles, I was sorted and boy are they sparkly. Of course being the mature adult that I am, I obviously did not do a happy Christmas dance in the middle of the store…

When I look through Instagram I love seeing those petals casually tossed amongst the pretty trinkets and I wanted to create that in a more Christmassy manner! To achieve this I found a bag of silver start confetti in The Works.

Candy…

I love the thought of using real sweets in my photos but they just wouldn’t last all that long and I would most probably eat them before taking the pictures! Instead, I bought some cabochon’s off Etsy! I love that they add a bit of colour to the photos and make them super cute! The Etsy store that I bought them off does everything from lollipops to mermaid tails so I am sure you can find a prop to suit your style!

Candles…

What is more Christmassy than the warmth of candlelight? I love adding a couple of tea lights to the background of my photos!

It’s all about lighting…

We all know how horrible winter can be for photo shoots so this year I have bought myself a lights tent thingy!!! This little thing had seriously changed the way I take photos and I think we can all agree my Instagram looks so much prettier for it! This light tent was super affordable at about £6 and came with two backdrops (white and black).

I hope you have found this post useful and I would love to to see how you take your Christmas photos!
