We did our family photo shoot a few weeks ago with the fabulously talented Sara Grayson and I am SO thrilled with the results. As you can probably guess, this first picture will be our Christmas card this year. It’s such a wonderful shot of ALL of us (as you may know, shooting with a 3 year old is NOT easy!)
I also had gotten a few requests for how to style a family for holiday photo shoots, so I figured I’d pair my advice with a few of our own shots.
I like to pick a color and use variations of that tone for everyone in the family’s outfits. I wore a Whistles dress I bought for a shoot over the summer because it was a warm day actually and I liked the idea of the dressy/ casual angle of it with the denim jacket.
Henry looked so handsome in this J.Crew zip neck sweater and cords. Andrew loves this Relwen sweater (similar here) so much- he got it two years ago and it’s still his favorite.
Look at my little sunshine! :) Can you believe he turns four next month???
The sweetest moment…
Mom and Dad alone… a rarity!
We love him a little TOO much, If that’s possible.
Mommy’s boy :)
So I did two boards– one a casual look in all neutrals and denim- great for outdoor shoots or shooting in cool weather and won’t clash with any holiday card borders you may pick out later! And then another one in navy/ blues (a color that looks good on SO many people and also goes with most holiday colors schemes).
These pictures are truly magical. You’re glowing and somehow look pregnant. I hope I am right!!! Henry has this infectious smile and is beaming all over and so is Andrew! Best wishes for your little family!

I love this! We had family photos a couple of weeks ago and I thought I had our outfits/color scheme figured out….until I didn’t. It was a bigger struggle than I thought it would be and every year I feel like I come across this. I didn’t have luck finding much online inspiration..Seriously why doesn’t rent the runway have a “family outfits” option???? I will refer back to this post next year when we do the family photos all over again!
Those photos are sooo good, you guys look wonderful and happy :)
Erin, Your family is perfect. I wanted 3. I got one perfect boy. I still wish you more children. But you hit the jackpot.
Adorable! Hold him as much as you can! My little boy turned 17 yesterday, and is 6’1″. I miss holding his hand.
That last photo of you and Henry is just… magical!!! I love it!! And I love watching him grow up. What a special collection of photos for your family.
Oh my goodness- it is so clear how much love is in these photos!
The colors are so vivid but it’s the light that makes these photos special. You couldn’t have picked a more glorious day!
Henry is a cutie! I especially like the photo of him on daddy’s shoulders. Precious!
Beautiful photos. Henry is so sweet.
Ok, your family is so frickin’ cute that I want in on this years Christmas card! Is that weird?!?! I love all of the photos because aside from the amazing golden sunlight and your great genetics, you all just look so dang happy and that really makes the photos so special. Thanks for sharing!
