Hi I’m Teresa Collins. I was really excited to be asked to be the guest blogger. I wanted to first say how thankful I am to be given this opportunity to share with you some of my favorite traditions and things about Christmas.
I am big on doing a yearly Christmas card with our large and growing family. I love watching our family change from year to year and this to be is just the most important thing to document… US. Years from now, we will look back on these yearly photos and remember so many memories. This year, my husband is battling a very aggressive cancer and we will not have our “normal” family photo and this makes me sad. I am sure I will come up with something else. However, no matter what… for me the YEARLY photo is a treasured tradition.
Collins Christmas CardI have found over the years that I am happiest when I am giving something to someone. I like to give things to people. I love to see their excitement. It just gives me the most joy. My background is interior design so Christmas decorating is always the fun part as well. I love picking out the wrapping paper, the gift tags, the ornaments, the stockings, and just making the home feel welcome. I like to decorate the door with a handmade wreath each year.
I love this yearly tradition.
I love to create Christmas projects that can be countdowns and daily journals for the holidays prior to holiday beginning. This is one that I did for this upcoming year that I simply will add my photos. I used my collection Santa’s List.

Lighting is Everything.
I thought I would start these 12 days of tips with the most important tip of all. Use light in your favor. The definition of photography is painting with light. So whenever you’re taking a photo try to move into the light.
