Sending out a holiday card is a great way to show your friends and family you are thinking of them this holiday season – even if you can’t spend it together. Whether it’s sent with a letter or a simple season’s greeting, the image inside is sure to put a smile on their face.

Before you say “cheese,” check out our top tips for taking the best holiday photo this year:

  • Develop a theme. Whether it be ugly sweaters, holiday pajamas or the perfect color, coordinating will make the photo one to frame.
  • Declutter your background. Start with a blank wall and use your favorite holiday décor to create a festive backdrop.
  • Check your appearance. Fix stray hairs, straighten shirts, and use Plackers Micro Mint® Flossers to remove any leftover food from your pearly whites.
  • Use practice shots and poses. Determine who should stand where and what camera settings work best before taking photos. Adjust your lighting and poses as necessary.

After you’ve taken the perfect shot, design your holiday card and send it to your family and friends.

Wishing you and yours a safe, happy and healthy holiday season. Spread the holiday cheer and show us your photos on Instagram @plackersdental.
