Tips for taking great holiday photos!

Leilani Rogers is sharing some of her favorite tips for taking holiday photos!
Now it's time to get that great Christmas card photo!  It is possible, I can assure you... whether you are the one taking the photo, or a photographer is taking it for you, here are a few ideas that will help you get a unique shot, without breaking a sweat.
This first example was taken at an old abandoned barn, the perfect shade of red for this time of year!  To bring a little Christmas cheer though, I hung a rustic green star on it.
I also love this pose.  When all else fails (namely, smiles) get a giggle instead!
I like to alternate between a family photo and a photo of my kids every year.  It's a lot easier to get a picture of your kids anyway... and that's all people really want to see right? ;)   Here's a cute shot I got of some kids playing Ring Around the Rosie in their living room.  With the Christmas tree peeking out in the corner, I think it says "Merry Christmas" in a subtle, endearing way.
And for something more whimsical, check this photo out.
Should you get a bad shot, why not have a little fun with it?  Love this idea my friend Courtney came up with:
Just a few ideas to help you say "happy holidays" this year!!!  Have fun and keep those questions and photos coming!  I love to see how you all are progressing: photosbylei@yahoo.com !
