Wardrobe Wednesday {pajamas!}

There’s no doubt about it – when your kids are comfortable in the clothes they’re wearing, they’re more likely to show you some big, genuine smiles. Everyone is more relaxed, and the shoot gets to start on a good foot. Now I ask you, is there anything that says “relaxed” more than pajamas?

In this week’s post, Shannon shows us some cute pajama options from a store I wasn’t familiar with (you’ll have to read below to see who) – AND – we get to see some pictures of her crazy adorable kids. Enjoy!


Is there anything better than your child all clean and dressed in their cozy pajamas? Well…okay maybe a few things. But for me, this ranks way up there! I’ve always thought it would be fun to do a PJ session with some kids in bed. I’ve done plenty of sessions and none of them have been in PJs. I decided it was time, so I dressed my kids in their new Christmas PJs and shot away! They had so much fun jumping on the bed, laughing and rolling around. AND the images are so cozy and natural. I simply LOVE IT.


Recently, I’ve discovered Hanna Andersson. They carry such cute and colorful things for children and adults. They have a huge variety and often run great sales. The best part? Their clothing is WELL MADE. To me, this is a mega BONUS. This past summer, I bought my kids some PJs from their organic cotton line (these PJs are fitted and NOT flame retardant which was important to me). They are soft, comfortable, warm, and best of all, they REALLY hold up after many washes! SUPER durable. I bought them 2 sizes too big so my kids will have them for another year or so (you can just roll up the cuffs on the arms and legs).

Check out the cute variety of pajamas they carry. Adult pajamas to baby pajamas! They even have family looks so you can coordinate or match with the entire family. Don’t forget the details! Hanna Andersson carrie adorable plush animals, blankets, sleep sacks, and other bedtime related items. Their slippers are to die for!  Remember all of the details that make your custom photos special!
