Almost any mom in the age of social media knows that having kids means your heart, your life, and your social media feed are all about your kids. Moms just can't help sharing photos of their kids' cutest moments—especially during special occasions such as their birthday, Christmas, and other milestones. These photos serve as reminders of those moments as they get older. It's no wonder moms allow themselves to splurge a little when it comes to getting OOTDs for the little ones.
Before you get carried away, remember to let your kids' personality shine in what they wear, whether they love the spotlight or prefer to keep things simple.
Need some style ideas? Take your pick from these cute, IG-worthy outfits for the next big occasion.
The '90s kid
For your little girl's birthday photo, take cues from the grunge look of your own youth. Introduce her to this decade by letting her wear a graphic-logo sweater, a metallic skirt, and some lace-up boots.
Photo tip: Show your daughter letting her hair down! Let her dance while you snap her photos.
The cool (and casual) kid
Comfy doesn't have to be boring. Up your little gentleman's go-to tee-and-jeans combo by topping it with a plaid polo. It's never too young to learn to layer! Also, add a pop of color with brightly-hued sneakers.
Photo tip: It's okay not to look at the camera. Try to catch your kid having fun, and just keep clicking!
The rising superstar
Have a budding A-lister? Her birthday portrait is the best excuse to get all glammed up. Add some edge to a cute tutu by pairing it with a graphic logo sweater. Also, nothing says "pop princess" like a side ponytail.
Photo tip: For a realistic shot, ask your little star to sing in front of the camera. A toy mic adds a playful and colorful element to the photo.
If your sporty son isn't too keen on wearing bright colors, that's all right. He can wear this navy blue jacket with neon green details and a patch. These embellishments make the jacket look visually appealing. Ripped jeans also add more personality to this outfit.
Photo tip: Standing isn't the only option for a birthday pic. Try a jump shot!
