I have been photographing my kids in matching Christmas pajamas for the past several years, and I have to say that I love the look! It is a fun & fabulous new(ish) trend. And I have had several requests for Christmas PJ studio sessions in the past, so in 2017 I decided to add the Christmas PJ Super Minis to my fall/winter family mini session offerings.
And I did have several families show up in their holiday finery to be photographed playing & snuggling together on my studio couch. The kids loved jumping & playing with their parents. And the parents were relaxed during the session and just adored how their final images turned out! It was truly as fun, easy, and relaxed as any family mini session could be.
Enjoy these photos from last year’s Christmas PJ Super Minis! Horned forest animals with a black & red color combo seemed to be the trend in this year’s Christmas PJ fashions.
2017 Christmas PJ Super Minis
To start off, I will show you some images of my test subjects. My own five kids dressed up in their matching Christmas PJs.
This family couldn’t be more loving & tender in their encounters with one another. They always seem overjoyed to be in each other’s company. Their love is palpable.
The Homack family went through some serious struggles last year, when Meaghan was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I first photographed Meaghan & Blake together in the Mother’s Day mini sessions in April, which with the new diagnosis, was a very emotional experience for everyone. Then Meaghan was able to bring Blake in for the DAD mini sessions again in May. After a long roller coaster of treatments throughout the spring & summer, Meaghan was rewarded with clear scans. However, with this very aggressive form of cancer, her doctor’s tell her that she has anywhere from 1-5 years, despite the encouraging scans.
All I can say is that is has been an absolute pleasure getting to know this family. They have learned to embrace each and every day while living each moment with purpose, passion & hope. I truly admire them for their strength & courage.

The Alexander family is an amazing blended family, consisting of two mothers and their children from previous relationships, as well as their new baby Charlee. I was lucky enough to be able to photograph Charlee’s newborn session in May of 2017. And she was such a sweet little doll for me. By the time you are reading this post, I will also have photographed Rachael’s twin pregnancy & twin newborn session earlier in 2018.
With two mothers deeply devoted to each other, these kids couldn’t be luckier to have this amazing foundation of love & support in which to grow & flourish.
