Taking pictures of your little ones together can be a challenge! Trying to get them to pose, sit still, and smile at the camera, requires some serious mom skills and a little inspiration. Although I can’t help you keep your kids still, I can help you find some inspiring poses that you can use to get that perfect holiday picture. Check out these 11 adorable pictures from Instagram and steal some ideas for your own holiday photos.

Matching Outfits

There is nothing cuter than matching outfits. Recreate this precious Christmas photo with holiday themed pyjamas, Santa hats and some cute poses. 

In Front of The Christmas Tree

Nothing is easier and more festive than having your Christmas photos in front of the Christmas tree. Have your kids try a cute pose like this one for some captivating Christmas cards.


Why not have some fun with the kids and bake during your photoshoot. You could also take some after photos of the kids eating the baked goods, which I think would make a cute addition to a Christmas card.

Use Props

Take some inspiration from Cheerful Moments and use some props. These kids look adorable on that little train-set, but you could use all kinds of different props for your pictures. The fireplace in the background also makes a beautiful backdrop for Christmas photos.


This picture is my favourite. It’s such a relaxed picture of the kids, but at the same time you can see pure emotion on the older siblings face. When you capture moments like this they make for the make the best pictures.

Christmas Morning In Bed

Another super cute picture. If you like the background in this photo, you can find a similar one here.

With Santa

If you don’t mind dressing up, why not include some photos with Santa? The use of green and red in their outfits really makes the photo pop and keeps the little one from blending in.

Winter Hats

I love the pose they used in this photo with the little one upside down and having the kids wear winter hats is a nice little touch.

With Cookies

Milk and cookies waiting for Santa to arrive! The kids expressions in this photo are priceless and the milk and cookies make it look extra cute.

Tips for Sibling Christmas Pictures

Just in case you need a little more inspiration I have included a few tips to create the perfect Christmas photo.

1. Take it outdoors

I feel like pictures always look better outdoors so why not use that to your advantage. You could take pictures of the kids playing in the snow or getting a Christmas tree. The combination of being surrounded by snow and pine would make for a beautiful shot.

2. Create a fun activity for your photoshoot

Like the baking example why not create a fun and exciting activity for your photos! From baking to decorating the Christmas tree there are plenty of activities that will allow you to snap a real moment with unguarded smiles. 

3. Make them say silly words

Come up with a list of funny words and have your kids repeat them. They will be having fun and you will get some genuine smiles.

4. Give them a prop

A treat or toy could get you a really adorable photo and if not, at least they will be having fun.

5. Show Some Love

Have them kiss each other, and just like the example below you will have a charming photo full of love!
