Parents, as a mom myself planning Santa outfits for my children I know just how important this time with Santa is. So, let me guide you through my wardrobe planning process for classic portraits with Santa that will never go out of style! I’ll be sharing my top four outfit planning tips for what to wear for photos with Santa. I’ve also handpicked my favorite children’s outfits with shoppable links to make it as easy as possible!

This year’s backdrop will include a beautiful flocked christmas tree, a custom calligraphy “Merry Christmas” banner & of course Santa with his rich-red suite. Santa of course will be the main focal point, so you’ll want to choose colors that complement Santas red suite, not complete or blend in. Colors that compliment Santa: White, cream, green, navy, muted tans, or blue tones.
While I love a good pattern, but we don’t want to over do it. Especially when planning outfits for multiple children. Patterns & soft textures are key to breaking up colors. I suggest one pattern to every two solid colors.
Parents are more than welcome to join in for one quick portrait, at the very end. If children are uneasy or become upset parents may need to jump in, so come dressed & ready.
The little details matter! Such as a pressed shirt, Simple monogrammed collars or knee high scoks, new shoes & coordinating hair bows. These small touches will truly elevate an outfit & make a big impact.
I’m so excited to share my favorite looks for Santa Sessions this year. I’ve included all my favorite color schemes and some of the most trusted brands including The Beaufort Bonnet Company, Feltman Brothers, Little English, and Bella Bliss. To make things as easy as possible, I’ve uploaded everything to one place where you can easily view and click to shop! Visit my Shop My to get all the links to these looks and more.
