Take a new family portrait

Christmas is the perfect time to share a special family photo with the ones you love, so it’s a great opportunity to capture a new family portrait. If you’ve got little ones, friends who live far away will love seeing how much they’ve grown. It’s a great family tradition to revisit every year, and family photo Christmas cards are the perfect way to share these snaps.

Your portrait will look especially festive if you pose next to your nicely decorated tree, so deck the halls and plug in those fairy lights! It’ll all add to the jolly effect.
