November family portraits are so wonderful and are the start of the Christmas magic for us. They are the perfect end to this month and lead up to December.
The colours at this time of year are beautiful. The use of whites, greys, blacks and cool blues completely epitomise winter and perfectly complement the chilly winter light. This is also the perfect backdrop for some truly cosy family pictures, with everyone bundled up in scarves, coats and woolly hats. Or perhaps if your family is a little more glam-based, the perfect setting for some seasonal glitter?
November also often brings the first snowfalls to certain parts of the country. Snow is such a magical element to a landscape and provides the perfect opportunity to get some great shots for the family Christmas card.
What do you love about November family portraits?
Despite often being overlooked due to the beautiful light offered by September and October, November weddings have so much to offer.
We love the fading light that November brings. It gives couples the opportunity to embrace indoor venues – from the elegance and glamour of historic houses to the rustic charm of barns. This is the perfect setting for a stunning candlelit ceremony. How very Romeo and Juliet!
November also brings a beautiful palette of greys and blues that looks so elegant and can be used in so many aspects of the day – from the flowers to the decorations, you could even include a cosy blanket for some really wintery portraits!
We also can’t get enough of the beautiful long sleeved wedding dresses that start to appear more and more this month. They are so elegant, timeless and perfectly capture the more wintery feel of the month.
What is your favourite aspect of November weddings?
Last minute shoppers contribute to a large portion of most Christmas retail sales. Although you may think that December is a time to wind down your Christmas marketing, it’s worth plugging away a little longer to capture those last minute purchases. So how do you make the most of last minute shopping?

In tandem with your marketing plan, sales plans should ideally go in hand-in-hand as much as possible. One should support the other and vice-a-versa to present a coherent path for yourself and all customers to follow. This applies to your individual photography products right through to attracting corporate customers or large-scale, long-term projects.
