Capture the moment

With the holiday season in full swing, we are probably all taking a lot of pictures. We all get the usual ones such as the tree, the family wearing Santa hats, decorating cookies, etc. But here’s a list of photo opportunities that you might not have considered:

~The look on a loved one’s face while opening a gift
~A child who has fallen asleep in the midst of the hustle and bustle
~A child inspecting a holiday decoration up close and personal
~Someone enjoying a favorite holiday treat
~A child holding tight to a comfortable old lovey while taking in the new wonders of the season
~The family pet waiting patiently for crumbs to fall
~A goofy family shot in addition to a serious one

*I hope you will share your ideas for interesting and unique photos with us in the comments!

Love these ideas! I always capture my children's expression as they open their gifts. It's priceless. I also love taking pictures of the pile of shredded and torn wrapping paper at the end of opening presents!
