Hey, everyone! I am so happy to be back here again at Sweet Tea and Saving Grace. I am especially excited to be sharing this post with you. Christmas is my favorite time of year, and there is no shortage of cute props that anyone can add to their families pictures.
Of course, I am all for you handing the responsibility over to a professional photographer to capture your family’s moments. Whether or not you’re a fan of having your picture taken, your family will appreciate seeing you in them too! Whether you choose to take the pictures yourself, or have someone else do it for you, you can incorporate these fun props into your session.
20+ Adorable Props for Your Christmas Pictures
#1- Christmas ornaments
Because… it’s Christmas!
Glitter on clothes. Glitter on trees. Glitter on everything!
#3- Christmas pjs & slippers
Because you won’t have a hard time getting your kids to put this outfit on for pictures.
#4- Christmas socks
They’re fun, and creative.
I might have a not-so-slight obsession with boots.
#6- Candy Canes
They make a great bribe for the end of your photo shoot, and super cute pictures!
#7- A cozy blanket
Stay warm during those pictures with a fluffy blanket, or use it to sit on together.
I love this subtle prop.
This is one prop that can be used after the session is over. Win-win!
Such a fun way to frame your subject.
#11- Mugs of hot chocolate and marshmallows
It’s no secret that I am a fan of lifestyle photography. Finding a prop that encourages fun, and is super cute is the best!
#12- Christmas trees
Any Christmas trees you can find- real ones, fake ones, wooden ones. You get the picture. <–Haha! See what I did there?
There’s no need to be scared of patterns in your pictures.
#15- Angel wings
How pretty?? This may have been my favorite prop to use.
Fun for everyone. The kids love having confetti thrown in the air.
(This is totally an outtake but too funny not to share)
They add so much texture to images.
#18- Christmas lights
This can be a little tricky if it’s not dark enough out.
Another one that adds loads of texture to your images.
#20- Bow ties
Is there anything sweeter than a little boy in a bow tie?
#21- Christmas swags.
You can find all kinds of colors and sizes and hang them anywhere!
I hope these props encourage you to get out and have some fun when you are taking your Christmas pictures this year. I love getting Christmas cards, especially when they have family pictures on them. If you’re looking for a personalized photo gift this year, here are are some you will love!
Do you have a prop to add to the list? I’d love to hear your ideas too! xoxo
