Holiday family portraits may sound stressful when many of us think about getting them planned and making sure the kids are cooperating. If you have more than one child you also have to worry that they’ll be in good moods at the same time! Oh, trust me, I know what it’s like. I am the queen of worry. We recently set up an appointment at our local Portrait Innovations for our holiday portraits and from the moment the appointment was set I was stressing. Outfits to me are a big deal. I have to make sure everyone coordinates, hair bows and ties included. All of the stress ended when we got to the studio and the outcome was more than I could have ever expected!
Holiday Portraits at Portrait Innovations
We’ve been to Portrait Innovations for holiday portraits before and there are many reasons why I love going there. Their photographers are spectacular. You can see we had FOUR children ages 6 and under to work with. It was no easy task and the photographer was genius! She was able to get them all to smile in most of the pictures (minus the baby who at 6 weeks was JUST starting to smile a bit here and there so totally not her fault!). She did get him to smile in some, too, which was just amazing and so special to us to have these early smiles captured. The photographers at each studio have been trained in the newest posing and shooting techniques and work with not only newborns, children and families, but also with graduates, religious milestones and large groups. We were able to get family photos, photos of just the kids together as well as individual photos of each child.
The backgrounds offered at Portrait Innovations are always perfect! I love their holiday back drops and even found myself wishing we had not done an outfit change because I would love the snow background with the kids’ holiday outfits! I was thrilled with how these turned out though so I can’t complain! We also got a photo done with a plain white back drop as a photo we can hang above our fireplace year round (or until the next family photos!).
Holiday Portrait Packages
The packages that Portrait Innovations offers are fabulous. They can fit any budget, unlimited or very limited. When we went the early bird holiday special was just $14.99 for a package of photos. Of course, if you want more photos you can spend as much as you want on your precious memories. There truly is something for everyone! You can also get a wide variety of products: canvas prints, holiday ornaments, photo mugs, and more – all perfect for holiday gifts for family members! They even offer 10% off for military, first responders, teachers, graduates and for birthdays!
(The cards do also include everyone’s names at the bottom but I cropped it out as we do not share our children’s full names on the blog.)
In addition to holiday portraits, holiday photos cards are also important to me. I needed to be able to get our holiday cards at the same place we got our photos done. What makes it even better? Portrait Innovations prints the photos and holiday photo cards right there IN STUDIO! We have them at home all ready to prepare to be mailed right after Thanksgiving! I am one who LOVES photos so being able to get everything right then and there? That instant gratification was awesome! Another reason I love Portrait Innovations and their customer service!
Portrait Innovations is the ONLY place we trust with our holiday portraits. No matter what you are looking for I am confident they can meet your needs. Find a location near you now and make an appointment to capture your memories!
