It’s almost November, which means the holidays are upon us, along with a list of a million things to do. If holiday photos and cards are on that list, you’re probably feeling pressured to come up with some Pinterest-worthy photo shoot ideas. We all have visions of winter wonderlands with our loving family cuddled together, but reality can be a whole other story. Right?!
Here are some funny examples from Awkward Family Photos of what NOT to do, along with some good tips (and cute shots of kids in big sister shirts, big brother shirts and holiday tees) to make sure your holiday photos and photo cards are not cringe inducing in the future.
Festive attire is a great idea, BUT there’s a limit and we think this family exceeded it a bit. Dressing kids in holiday themed tees, like these from our line of personalized baby gifts, is a cute way to show the joy of the season without overdoing it.
Props are ideal, but again there’s no need to overdo it. We think the simplicity of the Let It Snow sign with the coordinating red sleeved Naughty but Nice tee and Colorful Big Sister Tshirt express the sentiment of the holidays perfectly.
Ok, in all honesty, who doesn’t have a family photo like this one? If you remember being dressed in identical (dare we say over-the-top) outfits for Christmas, then you know your kids will probably prefer to wear coordinating big brother shirts and big sister shirts any day than some crazy get up like red gingham jumpers.

We get it, you’re proud of your kids’ accomplishments, but there’s a subtler way to incorporate their hobbies and interests in your holiday photo – and remember, you can always include awards, recognitions, etc in a year-end recap included inside the card.
