1. Wear red, green, and/or a neutral color
When you think of Christmas, what colors come to mind? That’s right! Red and green. They are classic Christmas colors. A Christmas outfit, party, photo, card, or anything must have some red and green.
Neutral colors like white, black, or gray are great complimentary colors because they go with anything.
2. Go to a Christmas tree farm
It’s hard to not take a Christmas-themed photo at a tree farm, you know? You can’t go wrong with doing your Christmas photo shoot at a tree farm.
