Tips for taking a picture perfect holiday photo

It's that time of year- time for taking family holiday cards to share with loved ones and cherish for years to come.

But getting the picture perfect photo can be a challenge, especially for families with little ones! It can also be expensive.

We have tips from professional photographer Katee Grace to help you get the best photo this holiday season.

But you don't even need a professional photographer! Self-timer modes on cameras or smartphones is one way to get the whole family in front of the camera, or you could hire a photography student from a nearby high school or college.

Happy holidays and happy snapping!
