Christmas card photos are officially done!! We didn’t waste any time this year and were ahead of the game with our matching affordable looks from the darling new line, Peyton and Parker, that is exclusively sold at JCPenney. I love any chance we can get to be coordinated as a family while staying on a budget. I will say we are prepped and ready for any Christmas festivities thrown our way this year.
Tips for taking Family Photos:
Always pick out your outfit first. I do this because I am generally the pickiest.
Find coordinating colors. You don’t have to all be wearing the same color. Pick colors that flow together nicely. Luckily for Christmas photos, wearing tones like we did in these photos work. It really makes everything so easy.
Wear layers. Having boys wear layers is also a super easy way to get more texture and color to outfits.
Find a photographer that captures good candid shots. These end up generally being my favorite photos of them all
Find a photographer that is really good about working with kids. We all know that kids are so difficult on picture day, right?!! Having a photographer who can call each children by name, have toys, noise machines, etc to capture the kids attention is key!
Why is it so much fun to match with your family around the holidays? I tend to do it any given Sunday for church when a holiday is near. The best part about this Peyton and Parker line is that everything is super easy to shop both in store and online. I was able to pick up all of these outfits in San Francisco and was so impressed with how easily it was to grab these looks and go. JCPenney has made it significantly easy by putting women’s, men’s, children, and home all on display in a designated area in each store. I promise you can’t miss it in your local store.
I have shared a few photos below of how easy it is to shop for your entire family.
I also picked up a few home goodies while I was at it, as well because I loved how cute and cozy they were. Here are a few items I picked up
If you aren’t able to make it to your local JCPenney, finding Peyton and Parker is super easy search online as well.
