DIY Photo Shooting for Christmas

While they are little we want to capture their firsts with lots of photos. They are only small for such a short amount of time. I am snapping away at everything, daily, hourly. Everyone following me on Instagram must be sick of me posting photos sometimes minutes apart.

This Christmas will be Chloe’s first ever Christmas. I know, she will be nearly 11 months old but it’s still her first one. Anyone who read my blog post at Halloween how to create a DIY Photoshooting scene at home will enjoy this one, too.

I had this idea in mind quite some time. It was just a matter of time to find the time and actually do it. Generally during the week I never get time for these sort of things but this weekend I finally had time and could go upstairs with Chloe and shoot away with her in her cute little outfits.



It’s so simple to create a Christmas scene. All I used was some tinsel and a red blanket and then some extras to add to it or hide the sockets on the wall, for example Chloe’s Santa sick where all her presents will be stored in for Christmas Day.


In this photo she is wearing her Christmas jumper from next of course. The snowman nose lights up which is so cute. Her leggings I bought in Mothercare. They have little sparkles on them. The sack I picked up for a deal on Groupon.


Her big brother Matthew joined in for some photos too. Meant I have some proper photos of the two of them in their lovely jumpers. The story behind Matthew’s Christmas jumper is actually funny. He’s seen Chloe’s jumper when I bought it and I showed him that the nose lights up. Anyway, he really wanted one too. So off I went to Next and luckily they had one for boys in his size too with a light up nose. He will be wearing this on Friday in crèche when Santa is coming. By the way, can I just mention, it is so much easier to do photos with a 10 months old than it is with a 3 years that constantly moves out of the picture and can’t sit still.


My little lady is hoping to be on the nice list this year. I mean how can she not be on the nice list with such a cute little chubby squishy face? I picked up this bodysuit from Mothercare.



She was a big fan of ripping the wrapping paper. It was an actual present she will get for Christmas but I don’t mind because she doesn’t understand the concept of Christmas yet anyway.

I hope you enjoyed this little festive post and I gave you some ideas for maybe doing your own little DIY studio in the house this Christmas rather than spending lots of money to get photos done. I would love to know in the comments below what you think of the photos. Did they make you feel a little more festive? I mean it is just 12 days left until Christmas Eve.

  1. Ahh they look amazing. Fantastic photo shoot for sure. So festive and memories to keep forever. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me. #sharewithme

  2. I keep seeing all the DIY photo shoots and think it’s a great idea. I just need to find a blank backdrop/somewhere to hang a white sheet for backing. The only other issue is our decorations never go up til quite late so we’d need to use the photos for the year after!

    Love that sack. It’s lovely to have personalised items that will last.

  3. How incredibly cute! It’s so easy to take a billion photos, especially when they are so small…. everything is so new and exciting and you cant to capture those moments and keep them forever. I love your idea for a photo shoot, the photos will be so lovely to look back on! xx

  4. Super cute!! Lovely photos. Love how you caught her with the hat on just before it looks like she’s about to pull it off. It’s so easy to set up a Christmassy scene 🙂 Love the snowflakes on the screen too!
