10 Celebrity Christmas Card-Perfect Family Portraits
There are a lot of Christmas traditions every family follows—whether it’s making sure a specific dish is part of the Christmas spread or spending the holiday season at a place particularly significant for the family every year.
Now, in the age of social media, what the trend is for marking celebrations is by doing an editorialized photoshoot session that will look great on the feed, some even complete with themed set designs! For Christmas this year, a lot of celebrity families spread holiday cheers on our social media feeds—from the royal family of Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte to the reality TV stars Kardashian-Jenner fam to local showbiz’s Vicki Belo, Hayden Kho, and Scarlet Snow.
If you didn’t have the chance to do your own Christmas card picture-perfect shoot this year, well, take note of these concepts and do your own version for Christmas next year!

Donning outfits in complementary light-hued blues, Prince William, Kate Middleton and their kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte make such a stunning family. Their Christmas card 2017 picture, photographed by Chris Jackson, sure seems impeccable, but netizens found it weird that Kate’s right arm is nowhere to be found. The photo quickly became viral, with comments like “#WhoHasKatesArms” and “Petition to recover Kate Middleton’s lost arm.” Despite that detail, there’s no denying they’re #FamilyGoals.
2. Whites and Denims

Doing shoots for their annual Christmas card is a tradition for the Kardashian-Jenner family. For this year, their concept is "The 25 Days of Christmas," so starting the 1st of the month, they've been sharing teasers of their back-to-basics photoshoot, where they're clad in matchy-matchy white and denim attire. But what's most noticeable about their Christmas card this year is that it's missing a few family members, like Rob and Kylie, whose baby bump fans have been dying to see. Here's a gallery of the Christmas photoshoots the family has done in the past:
