What to Wear Wednesday is here again! We're almost done with our little blog series, but today day we wanted to focus on maternity and newborns! They are some of our favorite people and little people to work with and we want them to shine during their sessions!
For Maternity shoots, we love soft flowy maxi dresses. Dresses and baby bumps go together like ice cream and pickles. Ok, maybe not, but choosing a soft material in a light color will create a more feminine glow. Show off your personality by choosing a fun print, or if you want a dreamy off the shoulder dress that works too! Don’t leave Dad out. Choose a nice collared shirt with a jacket and dress it down a bit with nice pair of jeans. Finally don't forget those fun baby props you want to include! We love them too!
Oh newborns... you have my heart. We love their sweet faces and grunts. They’re just so squishy and perfect! During your newborn session, we ask that you politely throw out all our previous advice...well almost! We usually recommend clients keep their wardrobe super simple. Soft colors like gray, black, and white are perfect during those intimate, natural sessions at home when you don't want to overshadow the sweetness of the little person that we’re focusing on. If we’ll be posing a big sister or brothers with the baby, light pink or soft shades of blue are great colors that add a little pop without adding too much.
We love photographing people in their homes. Everyone is comfortable and relaxed and it's just so chill. However, don't forget to declutter! If you have a specific area of your home you want to take pictures with baby, don't forget to remove all the "everyday" items you don't want the whole world to see in your photos. You know...water on the side of the bed, toys off the floor, bed made. It really makes a huge difference in the presentation and makes your photos look inviting and clean...just like a home should look!
Well that's it for today! We will back next Wednesday for our final installment of What to Wear Wednesday!
