Tips to Style a Kids Holiday Smartphone Photo Shoot 

The holidays are upon us. If you're looking for some smartphone tips and inspiration to easily create heirloom-quality images of your kids this season, you've come to the right place. Keep reading, because as you can see from these pictures, a children's photo shoot doesn't require either an expensive hired photographer or fancy camera. All you really need to capture beautiful family portraits like these are a good smartphone, happy kids, an uncluttered background (ideally with natural outdoor lighting), a little parent patience, and several well-made, vintage-style classic coordinating outfits from Feltman Brothers Fall and Winter 2021 children's wear collection.

Good Looking Outfits Key to Great Photos

"From the moment the Striped Knit Set and the Chunky Knit Set styles from Feltman Brothers arrived, I couldn't wait to try these classic and cozy matching outfits you see in this post on my little guys and start snapping some pictures, to share with family and friends," says Rachel Marks, a Southern California boy mom of two including an 8 month-old and a 3-1/2 year-old. 

"I was really looking for some photogenic kids clothing just like this which would be functional and comfortable, as well as stylish," she explains. "In fact, the homemade knit details, quality tailored construction, and classic small details went above and beyond what I was expecting. What's more is the matching styles both my sons photographed even more beautifully than I could have ever imagined.

"The Feltman Bros. classic look, which the company is well-known for, is so refreshing," she continues. "Truly such a nice change from all the contemporary boys' apparel in stores that involves dinosaurs, cars, sharks, trains, or other similar motifs. Beyond just wearing these for matching family pictures, both styles are nice enough to be worn throughout the holiday season.  And what could be more fun and cute than brothers wearing matching outfits, right? 

"Both pieces we received from the brand are cozy, timeless and the fit was generous and ran true to size with a bit of leeway so they can be worn a little longer. Without a doubt, these styles will be well-loved by my boys throughout this fall and winter," Rachel sums up.
