What should baby wear?
Newborns photograph best without any clothes at all.
I also love to photograph newborns dressed in neutral coloured organic, subtle wraps, rompers and pants.
I love them swaddled in blankets with lots of texture and snuggled up tight in buckets and baskets.
In the studio I have a supply of newborn hats, bows and headbands that coordinate beautifully with the blankets and props that we will use to stylise your images.
You are welcome to bring any hats or blankets that you would like to have the baby photographed in.
I encourage our clients to bring special, personal items which make the session and images especially meaningful.
What Should we wear?
The other important thing to consider your and the rest of the family's wardrobe.
What you wear to your session will again be the difference between beautiful, timeless images and images that you won't love after a few years have passed.
Obviously your session style and location will come in to play so please consider the colour tones of your location "backdrop" first, then plan a “colour scheme” to dress everyone.
I ask that you don't match everyone, but rather think about complimentary tones of a similar colour or combinations.
You also need to avoid any logos, brand labels, or graphics. These are distracting!
Stick to plains or repetitive patterns. Layers and textures are also beautiful.
As my style is light, neutral and airy, I recommend these tones as they are easy colours to style with.
I encourage you to include us in your wardrobe planning, send your ideas and suggestions, I will and suggest how to co-ordinate.
For maternity sessions, I generally encourage my clients to organise clothing that show off that bump, so either full flow maxi dresses, maxi skirts or stretchy dresses.
You will also receive a Preparation guide when you book, which you can refer to.
