My Xmas Saints & Angels

My Xmas Saints & Angels by LexnGer

Inspired by this shot taken 5 years ago, we have taken to getting our holiday dining companions to pose with their chargers.
Some achieve very angelic visages, some a little more humours, but they have all been good sports.

If you want to recreate this experience with your friends and family, remember a couple of tips:
1. always pose after the wine has been opened, poured and consumed. Makes for more amusing photos and more patience all around (though occasionally fuzzier photos)

2. always use the chargers because A. they are usually a little larger and shiner than your dinner plates. And B. if you use your plates especially after the wine is flowing you might find chunks of turkey and dribbles of cranberry sauce down the back of your guest’s holiday finery.

Holiday are fun, and my friends, family and loved ones are wonderful!
