I have to admit… the first year we did Holiday card family photos was a HOT MESS! I coordinated our outfits, picked a location, threatened Josh’s life atleast 5 times, and yelled “why can’t we just smile and look at the camera!” It was miserable. I immediately realized I wanted to do something different.
So the next year I bought comfy matching pj’s, we took photos on our bed at home, and we didn’t do a single “pose.” And it was GLORIOUS! Everyone was happy and it showed in the photos! I knew right away that this was a tradition I wanted to continue. So this year we did the same thing. I found some comfy matching pajamas and adorable matching slippers from Dear Foam. (I could not resist the Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Lil’ Bear and Baby Bear slippers!) We did the photos at home in our living room, and I let the kids choose our poses 🤣. They are absolutely some of our silliest and craziest- yet most relaxed Holiday family photos. And I love them!
So, if you’re planning your family photos and you’re already stressed about it- scratch all plans and make it fun! You will not regret it! And schedule them early so you aren’t scrambling to order cards and mail them to everyone a week before the holidays 🤣.
