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 incase you need a little more inspiration we 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 on the cheeks or lips, it will end up being a charming little photo.
