Happy Christmas! The First Studio Card

The First Studio Christmas Card

So, you are a commercial photographer and you want to create a new studio holiday card.

You just had your first child. And, being the proud poppa, you wanted to share your joy with the world, while keeping your marketing on track.

So, what did you did?

Set up the lights, put a little fire in the fireplace, and dropped your first born on the blanket and watched what happened.

What could possibly go wrong?

Okay, so the studio christmas card shoot didn’t exactly go down like that.

Mom pretty much banned cigars in the house long before Hunter was born.

This was the start of a conceptual photoshoot series that has continued for more than 2 decades.
