With the growing popularity of photo Christmas cards, you may be wondering how to make your holiday card stand out from all the others your friends and family will receive this year. Whether you plan to set the photo up yourself or hire a photographer to capture a family portrait for you, here are some funny and cute ideas to get you thinking:
A Christmas Story
This just might be everyone’s favorite modern Christmas movie. Liz Labianca styled the session above for one of her clients and created a photo that is sure to get some laughs.
Amanda Earles of Candid Moment Studios made the leg lamp herself and purchased the vintage clothing at Amazon.com and eBay.
But, you don’t need a whole family and a leg lamp to pull this off. Bobbi + Mike‘s photo is a cute version for just two people.
And speaking of Bobbi + Mike, they are experts when it comes to funny Christmas cards.
Hoe, Hoe, Hoe

Awkward Family Photo
Check out this series–we promise you will laugh out loud!
A little duct tape can help the Christmas carol Silent Night take on a whole new meaning.
Of course, if duct tape seems a little extreme, you could have the kids use their hands to cover up their mouths.
Photo-booths are a perfect way to bring out the silly in everyone. With a tripod, self-timer setting, and some simple props, you can create a super-cute series of photos for your Christmas card.
Justin Hackworth’s family photo-booth Christmas card really captures the joy of the season!
We love the expression on this little boy’s face. Dana from Joop Joop Designs perfectly captured the frustration we all feel as we untangle Christmas lights.
The faces really make this photo from Jillian Murphy great. We laughed so hard at the toddler’s triumphant expression as she has her parents all tied up.
Now, with all that inspiration, you have no excuse to send the same old Christmas card this year. Get that camera out and create something fun to send to your family and friends and spread some Christmas cheer!
