What to Wear to Newborn Session


Wardrobe selection is a critical part of the portrait process as it can compliment or distract from the moment being captured.  What you wear should make you feel beautiful and confident. The following are my personal recommendations and I am happy to help you select the best clothing for your session!  I do offer a wide variety of studio dresses available pictured below (sizes vary from M-XL) and I also have a selection of children outfits up to size 7.

If you prefer to wear your own outfit, here are my tips:

Women: I highly suggest long flowy dresses which help create a feeling of movement and emotion in your images. Either solid muted colors (beige, pastels, mustard, rust orange, etc) or timeless prints that compliment your skin tone, like florals, photograph well.  My favorite online boutiques are Lulu’s,  ASOS, Pink Blush Maternity, Baltic Borne, Vici, Altar’d State. I also highly recommend wearing your hair down for added impact in your images.  I do photograph families barefoot, so make sure those toes are manicured.

For men: V neck t-shirts in solid neutral colors and button ups in beige, denim/chambray usually photograph the best and coordinate well with the rest of the family. Fitted pants and denim work well as does other colors like rust/brown colored chinos.  Great places to shop at are Gap, Banana Republic, H&M, Old Navy.  For additional assistance, feel free to look through my Pinterest board {here}.
