Decide on a theme: Do you want to have dressy or traditional photos? Or do you want to capture your casual, playful, vintage or edgy style? Don’t forget, you can always bring a change of clothes.
It’s always best to think color. Saturated colors (green, blue, red, purple, orange, yellow) really pop in your photos. I don’t recommend too much white — it just doesn’t do much for most people. When trying to put together outfits for larger groups, try to coordinate, not match. Avoid pastels, they are like white. Feel free to mix and match stripes and small patterns. Pick 3-4 colors and mix them all in. Layers are always a good idea (unless it’s 100 degrees) and provide a lot of interest and makes it easy to remove an article of clothing and have a totally different look. Hats, scarves, jackets, boots, etc. All accessories are welcome.
Children and Babies
Kids look great in bright colors, stripes and polka dots. Cute hats, shoes, and small props from their rooms are great. A little color is always welcome. If you don’t enjoy very colorful clothing, a flower or cute hat can be just that splash of color that makes a photo really pop. I would avoid large logos and writing on clothing. If you’re not sure what to wear, you can always start with simple jeans and a shirt, and we can add from there.
When choosing an outfit for your maternity photos, look for clothes that will accentuate your belly. While you might find baby doll dresses or loose clothing to be more comfortable and flattering, when you look back, you will appreciate your curvy belly in all of its glory!
