Hi, I'm Neyssa

With your Snoqualmie Santa Photo Session booked, let’s help you pick outfits for your kids!

Santa photos are a little different than traditional family photos. While many of my What to Wear for Family Photos tips still apply (like, coordinating instead of matching). Snoqualmie Santa Photos have a few extra things to consider.

With these 5 tips you’ll find selecting outfits for Santa Photos a breeze!

First, watch the reds in your children’s outfits.

You want your children to stand out on Santa’s lap, not blend in. While it’s okay to have red within the outfits, avoid primarily red (or solid red) clothing. This will help give your Snoqualmie Santa photos depth and dimension.

Next pick your style for Snoqualmie Santa Photos.

This tip is vary unique for Snoqualmie Santa Photos. You could select to go traditional and dressy for photos, or you could select to wear Christmas pajamas.

Both options look great and work well. It simply depends on your own family’s traditions, style and preferences. I have done both. Dress is so much fun and beautiful. Though my kids loved getting to be extra comfy in their pajamas.

We love matching or coordinating pajamas from Little Sleepies. They have sizes from infant through adult, meaning your kids won’t outgrow when they can match everyone.
