Let’s chat about wardrobe for your lifestyle newborn session!
When choosing clothing for your newborn’s photo session, prioritize comfort above all else. Your baby’s well-being is of utmost importance, so opt for soft, breathable fabrics that won’t irritate their delicate skin. Cotton is an excellent choice, as it is gentle and allows your baby to move freely. Tie knot sleepers are amazing for this!
Comfort is Key
Keep it Simple:
Newborns are naturally adorable, and their tiny features are a wonder to behold. Keep the focus on your baby by choosing simple, timeless outfits. Solid colors or subtle patterns work well, avoiding overly busy or distracting prints. This allows me to photograph the innocence during your newborn session without any unnecessary distractions. Onesies, simple sleepers, or even a diaper cover are just perfect!
Choose Neutral Tones:
Neutral tones, such as soft whites, creams, and pastels, create a timeless and elegant look in newborn photos. These colors complement your baby’s natural complexion and can provide a classic backdrop for a variety of poses and settings. Additionally, neutral tones are less likely to clash with the overall aesthetic of your home if you plan to display the photos. When in doubt…wear white!
Consider adding a touch of personality and charm to your baby’s outfit with carefully chosen accessories. Delicate headbands, hats, or wraps can add a sweet element to the photos without overwhelming the scene. Keep in mind that less is often more when it comes to accessories, allowing your baby’s features to shine.
Babies grow rapidly, so it’s crucial to choose clothing that fits well without being too tight or too loose. Opt for outfits specifically designed for newborns to ensure a snug yet comfortable fit. Avoid clothes with too many buttons or snaps, as these can be cumbersome during the photo session.
