First rule…keep it simple and don’t stress!! We’ll help you!
Not sure what to wear? I can provide beautiful maternity gowns for you but also want you to bring some of your favorite outfits as well so we get a good variety of looks for your session. Be sure to choose clothing that will accent your sweet baby bump. Jeans and snug fitting tops or form-fitting dresses that are comfortable while showing off that baby bump are ideal. Add accessories that compliment your clothing – jewelry, scarves, etc. all look great and enhance your beautiful images.
I have created a What to Wear – Maternity Session board on Pinterest, which will give you some helpful ideas and suggestions for clothing options.
Newborns and babies are best photographed in nothing. We offer a wide selection of wraps, blankets, hats and other props that may be used for your session. If you have items that have special meaning to you, we definitely want to incorporate them into your session to create those lasting memories. So bring their favorite stuffed animal or any outfits or family heirlooms that have special meaning, etc.
For children and family sessions, clothing choices are very important for great portraits. Please avoid large logos and prints. If we are shooting more than one subject, please dress everyone in coordinating or complimenting colors and styles. They do not have to be “matchy-matchy” but sticking with a complimenting color scheme and style works nicely for family portraits.
Accessories are a great compliment to your session. We are mainly speaking to the women here. But it’s true…jewelry (necklaces, earrings, bracelets, scarves) all add pop and interest to your sessions and many times complete the picture. Just keep this in mind when making your clothing choices.
I can help you again with clothing choices if you need. For some helpful suggestions as to style and color combinations, please review our What to Wear – Family Sessions on Pinterest
It’s always fun to help couples with clothing choices, if needed. We want to help you have the best and most beautiful photos of the two of you possible. Clothing choices, of course, will depend on the type of session you want – casual, fun, more formal, elegant, etc. We are happy to help you and have created a board on Pinterest called “What to Wear – Couples Sessions” which gives you guidance into some styles and color combinations that you may find helpful.
