Family Photo Shoot Ideas for the Holidays

Christmas is right around the corner, and you know what that means?  It’s time for holiday family photos!  I’ve had many reader requests asking if I’d put together some looks for a family photo shoot.  So instead of one, I’m bringing you TWO today, from J.Crew Factory!  Most of these pieces are currently 50% off right now and almost all of them can be worn in so many different ways.

The cutest little crossbody.  I may need to get a second one of these.  The girls both wanted to wear it!  Their flats run big, be sure and order at least one size down.

The prettiest little headband.

Ashley: Dress // Heels (currently 50% off, fit true to size) // Earrings

Lanier: Shirt (on sale, only $19.95!) // Coat (currently 50% off, runs small, size up)

Wheeler: Dress // Turtleneck // Shoes (they run big, size down at least one size) // Headband

Effie: Cardigan // Shirt // Skirt (50% off) // Shoes // Crossbody

Logan: Sweater // Shirt // Shoes // Pants (similar here)

Vaughn: Sweater // Shirt // Shoes // Pants (similar here)


How fun are their sequin skirts??  And they’re currently 50% off!

My boys.

As for shooting a family photo, I always have readers ask how I get my children to behave.  Trust me, on this day Logan and Vaughn were extra rambunctious, but we made it work.  I try and bring a special treat and always have snacks and drinks on hand.  If worst comes to worst, even give them the lollipop.  I’d rather have them smiling big holding the lollipop than them screaming for it in the photo.  Whatever tricks you use, good luck!  It’s such a great feeling when you get that perfect shot!

Be sure and check in tomorrow.  I’ll be sharing two easy holiday looks with you that are super versatile and can be mixed and matched all season long.

I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend!  We’re actually heading down to Athens to watch the Georgia/Kentucky game with friends.  Should be a fun time!  Hope Georgia plays better than they did last week!  Also, I know I mentioned on Monday’s post that I’d be sharing some news with you soon!  Hope you can hold out for just a little while longer.  All I know is that I can’t wait to share!  So exciting!

TGIF, Y’all!
