DIY Holiday Cards with Canon

by Abbey O'Bryan, on October 29th, 2018

The fall foliage is mesmerizing right now and the perfect backdrop for your annual family portrait. The photo you take now will likely grace the cover of your holiday cards, your mantle, and your grandparents' refrigerator. The national average for a professional photographer's session fee is about $200. Add in editing, the prints you order, and the cost of creating Christmas cards from those prints and you're easily looking at over $500. During the holidays, no less! When you are already spending more on food, holiday party clothes, and gifts. You might be thinking, "there has to be a better way," and you would be right!

The technology on our smartphone cameras is the best it has ever been, and with the free photo editing tools available, your photos really do end up looking professional.
