Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, its time to start on your *Holiday Cards*. This year there are so many wonderful options available for selecting a great photo card. Of course a great photo card starts with a great picture. Besides good lighting and a decent camera, my only other tip is to bribe your subjects. Every year I ensure the boys they will be paid $5 each for their 'sitting fee'. Payment occurs only after the perfect shot has been taken. Most of the times it takes two or three photo shoots to get the lighting and smiles worked out so the boys definitely earn their payment. Once you have the picture then the next challenge will be picking out a card to go with it. Here are some of my favorites...
