Our 2020 Christmas photography backdrop designs have started going live on our website! This year, we wanted to add a large variety of Christmas and winter photo background themes, such as fireplaces, a gingerbread house, Santa's workshop, winter cabins, Christmas headboards and more. We've also added some dreamy winter fine art backdrops as well!
Some people think we're crazy, focusing on Christmas in June and July. Why so early they ask? Processing and shipping can take some time. Depending on the backdrop material and size, processing can take 3 - 14 business days. Shipping is typically another 3-7 days. Then once photographers receive their backdrops, they need to take test shots for marketing material.
Offering Christmas portrait sessions as early as August will allow you to book more sessions. Some clients may not want to book this early. Those with young children may be concerned about how much their child will grow by the time it's Christmas. A 6 month old baby getting photos in August will be about 10 months old by Christmas time. That's a big difference at that age. Clients with older children may be more likely to book early. Offer incentives for booking early, like 10% off, a free print or just a guaranteed spot. Also, remind clients that booking early will give them plenty of time to get their Christmas cards sent out.
Offering multiple photography backdrop themes is another way to reach more clients. One client may love a Christmas fireplace set up for family portraits while another client may love something geared towards children, like our Magical Christmas Window background. Some customers may even book multiple dates with different backdrops.
