As you prepare for your newborn photo shoot, one of the most important steps to take is picking out the perfect outfits. Choosing the right colors and patterns can help ensure that your photos look stunning and even timeless. As your professional newborn photographer in Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. area I’m sharing some tips and tricks that you may want to consider.
Choose a color palette for your newborn photo shoot
The colors you choose for your outfits should coordinate with each other, as well as any props or backgrounds in the photos. If you love the idea of a newborn photo shoot at home, I would suggest you take your wall colors and home decor into consideration. Neutral colors typically work well especially if your home features a lot of prints and patterns. If your home is lacking some accents, adding prints or patterns in, for example, mom’s dress could be really nice. If you love the idea of a natural light studio session, bold colors may not be your best choice. Neutrals and subtle patterns are the way to go!
Selecting the right outfit with custom framing in mind
When selecting colors for your newborn photo shoot, keep your home setting in mind. This is especially important if you plan to hang your gorgeous images. Offering custom framing, I want to be certain that the frames work well with the wall colors in your home. Not only will this ensure that your photos look great in their frames, but it will also make them look cohesive with the decor of your home.
Access the client wardrobe for your newborn photo shoot
As a professional newborn photographer in Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. metro area, I am proud to offer a curated client closet for moms and newborns. The dresses in the featured images are examples of what’s available to you. I also offer style boards with shop-able links to the clothing options suggested. A pre-consultation helps me figure out what exactly you are envisioning to make the best decision for your newborn photo shoot.
Figuring out what to wear for your newborn photo shoot shouldn’t be stressful. As long as everyone is dressed comfortably and coordinated according to color palette and theme, you’ll have no problem getting great shots during your photo session!
