Dress to impress: Dressing for your Santa photo

Ho Ho Ho, Santa Claus is on his way to Westfield Plenty Valley! This means it’s time to start planning the perfect outfit and make this year’s photo one to remember. To get you started, here are our top tips on dressing to impress Santa with your family, friends and fur-babies.

Sleigh from head to mistletoe

Posing for an epic bestie Santa photo this year? Why not treat yo’elf to new matching Christmas tees from Target, Jay Jays, Cotton On and Kmart. You can also whip these out at Friends-mas to channel the ultimate Christmas crew spirit. To ramp things up even more, pick a fun theme for the photo such as “all the jingle ladies” or “gangsta wrappers”. From ugly sweaters to merry props, shop the perfect matching outfits at Target, The Reject Shop and Kmart.

Best in snow

Although frilly lace dresses and tiny tuxedos are adorable, they rarely work for a Santa visit and could be to blame for the mid-queue tantrums. Avoid the meltdown and choose an outfit that will keep them comfortable throughout the day. For babies and infants, consider a Christmas-themed onesie from Cotton On Body. For the older ones, go for elastic pants and a soft button-up or a loose-fitting dress and sneakers from Target.

'Tis the season to be spilly

Avoid any last-minute accidents or spills by dressing them just before it’s go-time. Or, have a plan B! Get the perfect carry bag from <Myer, David Jones, Mamaway, Target, Kmart> for a convenient change so you don’t spoil the perfect pic. A hairbrush for a quick tidy up, wet wipes from Priceline, Chemist Warehouse and Coles and a festive bib or two from Kmart are also necessities that’ll save you on the day.

Meowy Christmas and happy howlidays

We all know there are fewer things cuter than a pet in a Christmas outfit, so for hats and jumpers, visit <Target, Kmart, Big W, Pet Stores>. Do they hate the idea of going all out and dressing up? Perhaps try a simple prop such as reindeer antlers or a snowman toy from <Target, Kmart, Big W, Pet Stores>. Get your furry friends into the festive spirit and have them posing for the perfect snap with Santa at our Pet photography sessions.
