Photographing Christmas preparation links

Ready for the Christmas Photography season? Parties, light displays, family traditions and the ever important Christmas morning is right around the corner.  Many of these photographic opportunities only come once a year. Below are some links to refresh our memories and dust off our holiday photography skills.

For those who are looking to up their game this year, here are a couple of links to do so.

    Thanks for the links, Scott. I’ll have to spend some time reading these. I get so caught up in getting everything done for Christmas, I often forget to take pictures along the way. And I know my days of always having my girls around for the weeks leading up to the holiday are numbered.
