Christmas is always a fun time for family. Some celebrity families are lucky enough to take pictures with willing kids that cooperate with them. Here are our top 6 Christmas shoots from our favourite local celebrities.

Linda Mtoba

If this shoot did not get you in the Christmas mood, we don’t know what did. This was Linda’s first Christmas as a mother. She made sure she dressed up with her husband and Bean and even their two dogs were featured. We don’t get to see hubby and Bean’s faces, but Linda’s smile is enough for us to know they were all happy to be having Christmas together.

Mo and Mome Mahlangu

It is always such a party in the Mahlangu household. The residents of Mahlanguville had a true family Christmas, sharing some of their moments in pictures. They shared the true beauty and chaos of being a family of five. In some pics, the youngest is seen crying, or playing with Mo’s Christmas hat. Just being a toddler. We love the realness of their pics.

We continue to fix each other's crowns with love until we get it right and know that there's no remedy to being a perfect family and no need to compete with anyone, understanding that you only have one life to live and don't live it to fulfill other people. Be what God has chosen u to be, walk your path, people like competing with others, be a rare breed, do it your way and they will learn, there is no school of parenting and dating but there will be people who will judge u,ur kids, ur marriage,ur fights, ur house, ur shoes, your hair edges ???????????????? like Wtf nigga get a life ? I stopped being cool in my late 20's I'm hard working grown woman with kids, husband and business to run,a bit of fame is a cherry on top of my daily stability. not anyone's opinions of my family ???????? ….#mahlanguville

Jessica Nkosi

Jessica and Nami oozed radiance in red dresses for their family Christmas shoot. Jess also reflected on how motherhood still felt like a dream. This is a reality for a lot of parents. These two looked stunning.

Pearl Thusi

This gorgeous mama of two shared the cutest family picture of her girls sleeping on top of her. She went on to reflect on how lucky she was. It was such a real and simple shoot, and the pictures are too adorable.

LeAnne Dlamini

The Dlamini family all dressed up in white and took beautiful Christmas pictures. What was even more beautiful was LeAnne’s caption: “As I grow older, my Christmas list gets shorter, because the things I want can’t be bought. I have everything I’ll ever need right here with me.”


This Fit Mom shared a beautiful picture of her happy family. Sana seems to be the happiest one amongst all of them with a big pout and closed eyes. Takkies’ mom joined them for the shoot, and the pic is just heartwarming.
