What to wear for your newborn session

Okay! Needing to get back into this blogging thing!!

So, each week Im going to post some different ideas! This week is going to be what to wear for newborn sessions! Yes, all my lovely clients will still receive the client prep newborn guide! But wanted to put this out there too for all the inquiring minds wanting to know….what should I wear for a newborn session! Not to worry any longer!

Alright! Now, what to wear?  This is totally up to you! Didnt think I would say that, huh? Lol.

I tell moms to pick their outift first and build others outfits around that. I do encourage moms to wear something comfortable and flowy, so as not constricting on their fresh postpartum body.

Due to its lack of texture, I don’t normally recommend for adults to wear white colors- now, if it is  lace, that works because that texture photographs really well. Soft and lighter colors are better for newborn photos in order for the focus to be on the baby and not on the bright colors!

Babies look best in simple one color onesies, I think!! A plain white or colored onesie perfect for your newborn babe!  This makes sure that the focus of this session is on babe and nothing else 😉  Need to swaddle the baby? No problem. I recommend a solid colored one for most but please feel free to incorporate something you guys love that has a print too!

When choosing the family’s outfits, coordinate but no need to match!  With sessions in your home, simple, light or earth colored clothing looks best. For example, your husband can wear neutral top like light grey/charcoal grey/light blue and lighter/dark pants and you can wear neutral colors like the cream, hazel green, grey, vintage blue!

and I absolutely love bare feet 😉
