This is your moment to shine. Choosing the appropriate attire is key. And I know it could be hard to come up with a good and solid wardrobe choice, but I am here to help guide you.
It is important that you choose clothes that make you feel comfortable and reflect your style and personality. Especially with our children.
I would recommend finding outfits with a lot of visual interest. Clothing with textures, layers, ruffles, skirts, leggings, dresses and jeans etc. Make it fun for them, but remember they are little and also have their own dress sense.
Or if you would like to have the timeless look. It is stunning when clients show up with the most simple and timeless outfit. A plain white lace dress with a simple bow. Or Great grandma’s smock dress. The option is yours.
Please try to dress the little ones in clothing that fits them well, not something that they still need to grow into.
Soft and neutral colours always work well in images. Start by choosing one favourite outfit for one person, (usually this outfit would be the “busy” outfit that has the floral pattern or stripes) and then draw colour inspiration from that outfit for the others. Yellows, creams and blue usually work well.
Matching is out.
Coordinating colour is the key to any wardrobe choice. It’s good to choose 2-3 main colours for your outfits, and maybe one accent pop of colour to bring it all together.
Layers add so much beauty. dimension and depth in an image. In the winter layers are easy, scarves, hats, cardigans etc. But what about the summer? Well, adding a cute belt to a gorgeous little dress would do the trick, a gorgeous necklace or even bangles would do the trick. Accesories are also key.
Please avoid logo printed clothing or clothing with writing on. It simply doesn’t photograph well and can often be very distracting.
The only time wardrobes should be kept simple and to the minimal, is with newborns. The focus will be on your precious little baby, and not your outfit.
Wearing white, grey or black for these sessions are key. When adding siblings to these images, it is a good idea to dress them in very soft neutral colours. Soft pinks or blue will still not draw too much attention away from the baby
