Family Foto Fancies::Non Traditional Holiday Cheer::

Merry Christmas to our Family Foto Fancie readers!
Can you believe that it's almost here!!
Let the countdown begin...only 7 more days!
Typically when you think of colors for Christmas you think about red and green.
However, it's time to step outta that Christmas box and into the new and upcoming trends of
bright pinks, lime greens, turquoise blues, oranges and golds!!
These fun colors give a new and fun twist on the holidays.

These fun colors look amazing photographed and would make a very fun Christmas card.
And since these colors are so in right now you could even use your professional pictures as your family pictures to use throughout the year.

Please enjoy your Christmas, hug your loved ones tight and remember the real reason for Christmas.
Happy Birthday Jesus!

Isaiah 9:6
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Free Thanksgiving Printables

Hi!  My name is Nicole.  I met Christina about four years ago when I found her beautiful photography website.  She was the first to photograph my son at seven weeks.  We fell in love with her instantly.  She has been taking gorgeous family portraits for us every year since.  Christina has enlisted my help to provide inspirational and free printables for you.
Here is an 8x10 scripture Christina chose that you may print out and frame.  The background art on the scripture is courtesy of  The place cards can be printed out on card stock for your Thanksgiving table.  There are four to a page so you can just print multiple pages as needed.  You can fill the names out ahead and then let your family/guests fill in what they are grateful for!

Click here for the Scripture.  Click here for the place cards.  Enjoy!

Can you even take the cuteness of this little boy?  I loved meeting him.  He's so sweet and perfect.  He and his momma had fun together during the shoot and I think their love shows.

Family Foto Fancies::Capturing the Memories::

Capturing the Memories-Fall

With Thanksgiving right around the corner
Nap Time Is The New Happy Hour
Christina Higman Photography
want to give you some fashion and photography tips on
How to Capture The Memories This Thanksgiving
Each and every holiday is such a blessing and you want to
 make sure you capture those moments with your family.

Some photos that I suggest that are "must have" fall holiday pictures are:

A picture of the delicious turkey.

Pies, pies and more pies.

The endless amounts of food.

The crazy kitchen mess.

The gorgeous tablescape.

Individual place setting.

Any family heirlooms used throughout the day.

Family portrait.

Mommy and Daddy.

Just the kids.

The holiday atmosphere, fall leaves, crisp air, sunshine.

The after naps.

The men enjoying football.

The never ending hugs and love.

And any decor to make the day extra special.

The week before try and plan out your families outfits so that everyone is matching in some sort of way.
This will make photos look all that more memorable.
Plus, that is one less thing that you have to worry about on the day of Thanksgiving.
I would suggest to pick dark fall colors to compliment the holiday.
Make sure your outfits are comfortable, you will be doing a lot of hustle and bustling around and the last thing you want is for you and your family to be uncomfortable on such a speical day.

Enjoy this Thanksgiving with your families.

Maternity Portraits - St. Petersburg, FL Photographer

I love doing maternity pictures on the beach.  For some reason glowing, pretty, soon-to-be mommas and the calm water and scenery go together well.  This couple was so much fun.  Nice meeting you both!
