What to Wear for your Holiday Session

Nov 12, 2020

Deciding what to wear for your holiday session can be totally stressful. Our goal in life is to make your annual holiday session as least stressful as possible! We partner with Jaime Diehl Style who creates style boards to match our current backgrounds!

Our traditional holiday background was designed by Nicol Floral Designs and is a stunning instillation of green, burgundy, blueberry and cream. Deep jewel tones look amazing on this background.

We are finding both jeans and formal holiday attire are looking amazing! Yes, pattern is totally cool. Just make sure that if you are doing a lot of pattern that your family is all in the same color tone!

But that’s not all! We have three different backgrounds going this year to ensure we have a little something for everyone! We also have a gray monochromatic background – gray washed wood wall, gray carpet, gray couch with an optional winter white berry wreath. Perfect for those with a clean, modern aesthetic.

We find this look works well with neutral colors. Think creams, grays, camel, light blues, of course anything metallic is amazing! We always recommend that your family coordinates rather than matches. Think in threes – everyone should dress within a color scheme of three! This gives variety without compromising individual personalties!

And finally, we have our look that is a bit more boho chic. It’s simple with lots of texture.

Have fun with this one! The whitewashed brick brings a neutral texture while the faded red rug hints at holiday while being neutral enough that it looks timeless year round.

The holiday’s are stressful enough, don’t let how to style your session be something you stress over. Each of the above style boards are shopable – which means you can click on each and purchase. Or Jaime offers customized styling for the entire family – for $60. Click here to learn more!
