The holiday season is full of family traditions in our house. Christmas baking with my mom, making tourtiere for Christmas Eve dinner, and of course picking out the perfect Christmas outfit to wear on Christmas day. As a child I remember the fun and excitement of browsing through the Christmas wish book looking at all the dresses they had available and then heading to the store to pick out a Christmas Dress. Now that I am a mom, I have kept the tradition of the “Christmas Outfit” going with my 2 boys. Sears has vast selection of adorable outfits for boys and girls, all at prices that will fit your budget After picking out a 3 Piece Dockers sweater vest set for Monkey, he helped me pick out outfits for both a boy and a girl since we didn’t know what we would be having at the time.
And then we waited for baby to arrive to carry out another tradition that I have started: Christmas pictures at Sears Portrait Studios. I have taken Monkey several times to Sears Portrait Studios to have his picture taken, and have always been very happy with the results. This time I embarked on a solo parenting adventure to get a Christmas portrait of both the boys. The staff at Sears Portrait Studios were extremely helpful which was wonderful while trying to wrangle both kids myself. The selection of backdrops and props was great.
Amazingly both children cooperated for the most part and the photographer was able to get a bunch of great shots of the boys, both together and on their own. Now if you book a photo shoot with Sears Portrait Studios, be sure to leave some time afterwards to review the photos and place your order. We had over 30 images from our session to browse through and then created some holiday cards to send out to friends and family.
One thing I love about getting Christmas Portraits done is that they equal easy Christmas gifts! From prints & collages to Christmas ornaments & calendars there are tons of gift giving ideas from Sears Portrait Studios. Visit them online to find a location near you. Do you buy special outfits for the holidays for your kids? What about getting family portraits done?
