A huge plus is that the scenery is already ready, but the choice of clothes, accessories and a festive mood must be providedyourself.

Girls can think about options for photos in an evening dress, men are better off choosing trousers without arrows. It's good if the clothes contain elements of New Year's symbols - figurines of deer, fairy-tale characters, Norwegian patterns, red caps "a la Santa Claus".

As an option, you can consider blue-blue or soft beige, the main thing is that the clothes are combined with the external surroundings, but do not merge with it. If the photos are family photos, then the outfit of all members of your small clan should be in the same style.

Choosing a shooting location

If your own apartment is decorated with love and due care, then a photo session at homeconditions will be on top. Turn on your imagination and click for your own pleasure or invite a photographer.

A photo shoot outside in winter may not seem like the best idea, but not on New Year's Eve. Warm clothes and a good mood will keep you warm, and natural snow can be replaced with artificial snow. If your own house and yard do not appeal, try these options:

  • cafe party
  • skating rink,
  • bowling,
  • mall,
  • country cottage,
  • any landmark or famous place in your city.

If you doubt your design talents, pay attention to shooting in a photo studio with a suitable decor, a beautiful Christmas tree, and bring the missing little things with you. For your little one, be sure to grab a favorite toy to soothe him in unfamiliar surroundings.

Christmas accessories and holiday decor

  • cones and spruce branches,
  • original souvenir Christmas trees,
  • beautifully wrapped gifts,
  • carnival masks and masquerade costumes,
  • fluffy blankets,
  • knitted rugs,
  • glasses of champagne,
  • festive table.

The tree must be in the frame. Participation in the shooting of pets is especially welcome. They canGive it a festive look with reindeer horns, red hats, and other Christmas goodies. Furnish steaming mugs with hot tea with warm “clothes”, and paint everything that can be dyed with acrylic paints.
