We’ve searched the web and are sharing some of our favorite Christmas-themed photography sessions here on I Heart Faces today!  We hope that these photos will inspire you to try something new as you plan for holiday sessions for clients or for your own family.

Many of the links we’re sharing have entire sessions posted on their blogs.  Be sure to pop over to their sites to be inspired even more!

Haley Sheffield captured the sweetness of these newlyweds’ first Christmas. Photo tip:  “The snow at the end [of the session] was actually instant potatoes… cheaper than artificial snow and biodegradable! ;)”

Christmas Lights

Babies and children are fascinated with the sparkle of Christmas lights.  Safety Tip:  Please always be careful to make sure that little ones never put Christmas lights in their mouth!
