Planning for your

Simply Holiday Session

what to wear

Please feel free to check out THE STYLE GUIDE! While not all of the advice will apply to a Simply Holiday Session, many of the tips will be relevant in helping you plan your wardrobe!

For this holiday themed event, please feel free to go one of two ways:

- Classic, neutal clothing: think white, cream, oatmeal, beige, gray. Dresses for little girls, sweaters and khakis for little boys. 

- OR stick with classic, neutral coloured PJs, which would be totally adorable

Either way, think cozy! Soft fabrics, layering, some texture...

I have shopped the ZARA website for you & created a Pinterest Board with links that will take you right to the items. Purchase right from there or just use this board as a visual guide to inspire your choices. 

Some general tips:

- Be prepared & choose your outfits well in advance

- Don’t be afraid to ask for advice; feel free to email or text at 780.554.9132

- Lay all of the outfits out together... it will become apparent quickly if there is an item of clothing that doesn't belong.

- Choose a classic, neutral palette with soft accent colours

- Avoid T shirts with writing, logos or characters

- Consider adding a small, neutral print or pattern for interest

- Accessories are good, but remember sometimes less is more

- Since these are studio sessions, we will likely photograph your family barefoot

- Consider getting your hair & make-up done professionally

- Make sure your children feel comfortable with their outfits

- Check the fine details & make sure everything is polished


Neutral colours & soft, flowing fabrics will result in soft & organic images. Keeping your clothing palette neutral allows the focus of your images to be natural connection & authentic emotion.

Due to the limited duration of these sessions, no clothing changes during the session are permitted. The Studio Wardrobe is also unfortunately not available for this event.

Hair & Makeup

Having your hair & makeup done prior to your session is a way to ensure that you look like your freshest & most gorgeous self & I highly recommend it!
