I usually recommend doing either pajamas or your Christmas best. These two options give two very different looks, but both are timeless, classic, and photograph so well. I suggest you avoid the “in-between” look – for instance, a shirt and jeans, in my experience, do not photograph as nicely.
The PJ look is so easy, comfy, and yet so cute. Whether you keep it solid or go with a simple pattern, you can’t go wrong with this look.
Below are links for Pajamas shown above! Petite Plume is one of my all time favorites!

- Solid Red- Be careful with dressing multiple kids all in solid red. Next to Santa, this can blend in. Try to break it up with a pattern!
Hues of Blues & Green- Believe it or not, hues of blue pair so nicely with Santa’s suit. Whether it’s soft hues of muted blue or dark navy, this color palette pairs very well with the big guy in red!
Shoes & Accessories
Easy to forget about but also very important! If you opt for pajamas, I recommend bare feet. If you go the dress route, nice shoes are preferred. Make sure the bottom of the shoes are clean as we can often see them when the children are sitting.
If you have girls, don’t forget headbands and/or bows if that is something you would like her to wear. Some of my favorite places to find bows/headbands are Etsy & Little Poppy Co.
