Family Photography for holiday cards can be something sophisticated and classic.

"If you don’t have the time though, think about sending out a New Years, Valentines or even a Spring Card. A card sent at a different time from all the rest will be surely be remembered”.

Based on her twenty plus years experience Los Angeles Photographer Linnea Lenkus says: “Forget the Christmas cards. There are two types of people who ask me to create cards after the holidays. Some are people who just got lost in the shuffle and didn’t get it done in time. Others are people who just want to stand out from the crowd and would rather celebrate the New Year.”

It’s that time of year when mailboxes are jammed pack full of Christmas photography cards. Christmas photo cards are so popular that there are entire websites devoted to bad holiday photo cards. The majority of Americans are running behind, distracted with all of the gift-buying and holiday parties. Who has enough time to fit into that photography session, the stuffing of envelopes and of course that long and painful wait at the post office?

Why forget this tradition of throwing together a last minute photography session to send out to everyone? Linnea Lenkus says, “I have printed many holiday photography cards for my clients and that’s all very good if you have the time. If you don’t have the time though, think about sending out a New Years, Valentines or even a Spring Card. A card sent at a different time from all the rest will be surely remembered.”

Sending out an alternative to the Christmas card still lets family and friends know that they are remembered at a very special time with a unique card that they can keep up all year long. The theme of the card can go outside the traditional colors so people can have fun with it!

So, those running around full of holiday stress who missed the boat on sending out those photo Christmas cards have an alternative. Linnea Lenkus says that they can take a deep breath and dare to be different by sending out a card that welcomes in the new year or celebrates love.

Linnea Lenkus owns and operates two portrait studios in the Los Angeles area specializing in loving portraits of families, pregnancy, babies, children and fine art nudes.
