What to Wear for Family Christmas Photos
The #1 biggest question I receive from my clients before their family Christmas card photos session is always this: “What should wear?” Today I’m sharing with you my expert advice on which colors, patterns and textures look best on camera during the Christmas season, as well as some tips to help you coordinate outfits for your family portrait session.
Down below, you’ll also find my studio’s Pinterest board where we pin ideas on what to wear for family Christmas photos.
6 Tips on What to Wear for Your Family Christmas Photos
Opt for Rich, Fall Colors
Pick Neutral Colors like Gold, Cream, Navy and Black
Find Pops of Color
Sweaters, Knit, and Navy
Sweaters are always a good idea for the holiday season. The more texture, the better! Also, patterns like tartan, argyle and checkers can look beautiful in the Fall months. Navy is always an ideal color for the Fall and Winter months, and pops of color and stripes can look super cute for families in matching pajamas!

Pairing an accessory or two with your Christmas outfit can really help bring some extra dimension to your images, and be a nice tie-in when you’re coordinating with your family.
Big statement necklaces bring a lot of pop to the photos, while the smaller, delicate ones are not as noticeable on camera. Belts, bracelets, and earrings bring some visual interest, so choose one or two that don’t compete for attention.
Big holiday bows are timeless and a classic way to add some girly timelessness to your portraits.
