Every year, there are two groups of people. There’s the group that gets their holiday cards out during the first week of December. And then there’s the group that takes their holiday photo at the last minute. It’s a good thing that nobody will ever judge a card for being a couple days late. December gets really busy, so it makes sense if cards get pushed aside — especially if you’re the type to personalize them.
Decades ago, it was common for families to actually send out a letter with an update of how the family was doing. But these days, since most of us are on social media, it’s easier than ever to get updates on the people you know. So, just sending a card with a picture is good enough. And honestly, that photo should probably be good.
That opens up a bunch of other questions. How should you pose? What will you wear? And will you actually get a good shot that flatters everyone?
When you send out a Christmas card, it’s hard not to include your fur-child. Even if they don’t photograph all that well, they’re part of the family — and deserve a little recognition. Most families just pose with their dog. While that’s completely fine, there are other ways you can use your pup (or your cat, if they’re good with cameras) to show off your creative nature. Here are just a few.
