Whew, has this year flown by or what? I’m sitting here ordering our outfits for our family Chrismas photos already! Last year we had the chance to take amazing Christmas tree farm photos with Santa and I cannot wait to do it again. Coordinating family outfits for Christmas photos is oddly satisfying. Mixing prints, matching colors, it’s all so much fun.
‘Tis the season! After the year we had I cannot wait for the magic of the holidays. The first thing we do every year is our family Christmas photos. It’s something everyone in the family looks forward to each year and looking back at the photos from year’s past brings me so much joy! Planning professional photos with Santa is an investment that goes straight into our budget every year. Kids are only small for such a short time that anything I can do to keep the excitement of Christmas alive makes it worth it.
Here are a Few HELPFUL HINTS FOR Family Christmas Pictures Outfits:
- WHERE: Think about your photoshoot location. Will you be in a studio or a Christmas tree farm or other location. Your location plays a HUGE roll when deciding what to wear in your photos. In your are planning an outdoor shoot you can’t go wrong with holiday plaid or festive sweaters.
- Coordinate: You want your family photos to look good. If your colors don’t coordinate than your photos will not tie together. You do not need to match. In our photos below you can see several different colors in our clothing but we all coordinate. It’s very simple to plan good family photo outfits you just need to make a little time to do so.
- BE COMFORTABLE: Learn from my mistakes and be comfortable! The first year we took our family Christmas photos I wore HIGH HEELS. It was such a mistake because sometimes photos can take a long time. Keep this in mind when planning your outfits
