Whether we are prepared or not, the holidays are approaching and fast

November is the time of year when wedding season slows down for me, and I spend more time at the computer designing albums.I also begin booking client sessions for holiday portraits which is really cool. It's a nice change of pace from the long hours and tight demanding schedules of wedding shooting. I began doing portraiture about two years ago, and I am so glad I did. I even signed up for Help Portrait with some fellow friend shooters and we do portraits with Santa here at a local church to give some families a beautiful family picture they wouldn't be able to afford if it weren't free. We all pool our gear and studio equipment (backdrops and such) and put together a really nice setup for these families. It's a really nice time.If you make a really nice portrait, clients will want more than holiday cards. Some studios out there use some really nice painted muslin backdrops, and to be honest, this is really the only time I can see using studio backdrops for portraiture. I don't use backdrops and I am thinking of getting one for Christmas portraits.I am looking forward to taking some good portraits this holiday season. I just hope I don't wait too long to send out my own holiday cards. I always seem to send them out late.
