Tis the season for family holiday photos! I will be the first to admit; family photos can be, well, stressful. Trying to get everyone out the door looking cute, on time, and praying that no one spills water, juice or get their clothes dirty is a lot!
But let me tell ya, I always LOVE getting the pictures back. It always so fun to see the moments captured. And if you have been following along for a while you know our family moments are silly and goofy.
My biggest tip and advice when it comes to family holiday photos is to have fun. Relax and enjoy the moment! Bring props, play with fake snow, tickle and enjoy each other. The candid photos are always the best in my opinion.
As far as getting ready for family holiday photos, my advice is to avoid matchy-matchy. PLEASE no more all white beach photos, or matching all-white polos. Polos are okay to wear, but switch it up. Add color or patterns! You can also still stick to neutral colors, but try adding neutral prints for a little extra.
If you ever need color inspiration, Pinterest is an excellent source, but I also love going to Pantone and looking at the different colors and what goes with what.
Also, mama should always get ready first and last to get ready should be the kids. I will get a shower, do my hair and makeup. Then, I get the kids ready and finally, I’ll get dressed when it’s time to hit the road. I’ll wear a robe while getting everyone prepared to avoid wrinkles or to avoid any spit up on my clothes.
