Dressing Your Family for the Holiday Card Photo

A classic fall tone cape. A pair of leather riding boots. A felt hat. A beautiful little girl. Bring all these things together, incorporate a photog and the results are breathtaking. Repeat the same process except with the older male sibling and you create a fashion shoot fit for the J. CREW CREWCUTS catalog. The cards we send to our loved ones over the holidays should convey a simple message of caring and interest. Nothing more. Nothing less. To display your family well in a festive card is a special skill and the families below are masters of the craft.

First impressions are often expressed and interpreted through our wardrobe. These first impressions say: "I'm stylish. I'm confident. I'm photogenic. I'm personable."

I present to you Little A., Mr. C., Little E. and the Z. boys. The bottom line: These kids and their mothers have great style.
