Jeannette and Matt's Christmas Photos

Let me start off by saying that this was one of my most challenging shoots yet and I'll tell you why. Jeannette and Matt specifically wanted campy 1970's styled photos so they can send them out as cheesy Christmas cards. They're just fun like that. Jeannette made Matt's "special" reindeer sweater herself, with the intent of making it as old-fashioned as possible. My job was to not make it look as good and artistic as possible, but instead to give it an outdated look.


I think this one works really well. I purposely used direct-flash so it would look the part, and the acting by the trio was perfect. I also gave it a little yellow-tint treatment.


Here are a couple more with better lighting technique and still with a yellowish tint.


I love their expressions here, and the fact that they came up with the idea and put so much effort into it. I can't wait to see how the Christmas cards come out!
