Family Holiday photos are a big deal. Every year when the holidays come, we dress in our best festive clothes and take photos to commemorate the season. While it may only take an afternoon to have your photo taken, family holiday photos will be looked at and remembered for years to come, so it can feel like a lot of pressure. How can we decide what to wear for another year of holiday photos? Look no further! From tacky Christmas sweaters to matching family pajamas and everything in between, there are endless options when it comes to family photo outfits. This year, take your best holiday photos ever with these outfit ideas that are fun and festive for the whole family!
Looking for a cute and cozy outfit from things that you might already have around the house? You can’t go wrong with Christmas sweaters! A timeless classic that keeps everyone warm and cozy, holiday sweaters are the easiest outfit option for your family picture. They’re cute, look nice, and everyone from grandparents to children will look great in them. Choose a matching color or pattern for your whole family to wear with khakis, slacks, or whatever other bottoms you think will look best. Don’t have holiday sweaters? Red and green are perfect for Christmas, while blue and white are ideal for Hanukkah. Don’t be afraid to have fun with it! You can even theme the photo to ugly holiday sweaters—the tackier the better! Whether you’re hiding from the cold or dreaming of a white Christmas, your whole family will feel the spirit of the season with holiday sweaters.
Another fun and festive outfit idea that everyone will love is matching family Christmas pajamas! While it may seem silly to leave your house in your pajamas, especially to take a family photo, the pajama photos actually turn out amazing! In varying designs and materials, you’re sure to find a holiday print that is great for everyone. From red and green plaid flannels to snow or winter themed, you’re sure to find a pajama set that the whole family loves. Can’t get everyone to agree on one print? Have a clashing pajama photo! Similar to a tacky sweater photo, going with clashing PJ prints instead of matching ones gives a fun spin to an already exciting occasion! The kids will get a kick out of wearing their pajamas out of the house, and your whole family can make an event out of getting your holiday photos taken! Want to take it even further? Go out to breakfast, lunch, dinner, or for a special treat in your pajamas. It’s as much fun as you make it, so why not make this year’s photo shoot special!
Another great theme for your family holiday photos this year is to theme to the winter weather! Not into the Christmas colors or bright, bold tones? If you’re looking for a quieter color scheme for this year’s photos, go for a snow theme. Have everyone dress in white fleece to make your photos into a special winter wonderland. Don’t want to wear white with kids and potential stains? Light blue is also a great icy shade for your holiday photos. You can even dress the whole family in matching snowflake print outfits. Another way to spin the snow theme is to have everyone dress in their snow clothes! From snow pants and scarves to kids’ hats and boots, the snow clothes option allows for lots of wiggle room on what colors, styles, and accessories are included in the photo. This option is great for those with no religious holiday affiliation or those who want to focus more on the winter or season than the holidays themselves.
Whatever you decide for this year, make your family holiday photos special by changing it up. From Christmas sweaters and matching pajamas to snowy weather themes, there are so many fun and creative ways to make your holiday photos more original. While classics are reliable for a reason, it can also be fun to get out there and spice things up. When you’re hanging your family holiday photos from this year, you can look back with a smile and know that your family really took it to the next level this winter. Your kids will love it, and you’ll have the memories to last for years to come.
