With this Holidays right around the corner, it is time to get families together to get the perfect Holiday Christmas card photo. I am a photographer and love to capture wonderful lifetime memories through my lens.

GIVEAWAY! ENTER HERE : offers Holiday cards, ornaments for the tree, wedding invitations,baby shower invitations and even art. Shop hundreds of different cards, a choice for everyone. They also offer FREE online Holiday party invitations. 


When preparing for a photo shoot these are my must haves:

  • Good lighting - I prefer natural lighting, Golden hour is my favorite time to capture images.
  • A Tripod 
  • Props {I prefer not to try to hard on props as I go for a more natural look}
  • Extra memory cards 

Capturing photos with the right camera. I have many cameras I use for different occasions. 
I mainly use my Nikon D610 and my Sony A65.

The Nikon 610 is perfect for low light photography and getting sharp images. The cost of this camera is a little high {$1,599.95 for body only}  but it is worth every penny if you are looking for a high-end professional camera.

I also use the Sony A65 which is perfect for wanting bright color pop photos I love it for landscaping and some portraits, depending on the time of day.
