Dressing your Little Ones for Holiday Card Portraits

Tis the season for checking those Christmas family portraits off your holiday to-do list! While it may take dozens of frames and multiple forms of bribery to get that perfect snapshot of your little ones, we know the real work begins even before the photography session commences! Choosing your children's outfits for their photography session is an important part of the process, whether you aim for all their clothes to effortlessly coordinate or you would rather have them simply dress in a seasonally fashionable manner.

Little English children's clothing is one of our favorites when it comes to shopping for our little ones' outfits! They have adorable holiday clothing options that you can shop on their website and in over 300 boutiques across the United States. Little English founder and designer, Shannon Latham, has kindly shared her advice for dressing your children for your holiday card photo: 

  • As the founder and designer, I believe children should be well dressed as children in styles that are sweet and celebrate childhood.
  • It’s not all about red and green! Don’t be afraid of a softer color palette for these photos. We have a lovely Pleats Collection this season that is made on light blue corduroy that can be worn all season long.
  • Remember to ask your photographer to be continuously shooting. Some of the sweetest moments happen between the poses and capture your children in a more natural way.
  • Mom to mom -- check kiddos for marker stains and remove nail polish a few days in advance!

We've included below some of our favorite Little English outfits paired with a few of our holiday cards. The options are endless but we hope this helps and inspires you to create a holiday card you love!
