What to wear for your photoshoot

Here are some tips on what looks best for a studio portrait so you'll love your photos forever.


An outfit can take your images from 'just another photo' to a 'beautiful portrait'


#1 Neutral colours help to keep the focus on you and baby. Bright and bold colours will draw your eyes to your clothing and make the image look busy.


#2 The same colour pallet - If possible try to colour coordinate the whole families outfits. Not everyone has to wear the same colours, but try to keep them similar.


#3 Nothing too heavily patterned - Stripes, spots and heavily patterned clothing can take the focus away from you and baby. Try to keep to plain clothing where possible.


#4 Its a no for logos - Keep your images timeless and logo free!


#5 Don't over accessorize - the more simple you keep it the more you'll love your images forever. Please take off any jewellery that isn't sentimental.


#6 Hair. Keep your hairstyle simple and out of your face.


Newborns and Babies. Newborns and babies are photographed best just as they are. I will use wraps and blankets to cover up their nappies. It is also much easier when they are undressed to move them from scene to scene, to not cause them any stress. However, I do recommend bringing any outfits that are sentimental to you that you'd love a photograph of! Babies don't like getting changed so try to keep outfits to a minimum. It's also cute to see their toes, so don't worry about finding shoes to match!


12 months+. As baby is now all grown up it is cute to see them dressed up! I recommend bringing 2-3 of your favourite outfits. Don't worry if not, as I have lots of cute rompers, nappy covers and cake smash outfits!


Ultimately you need to feel comfortable in what you wear. If you need any help or if you have any questions please just ask!
