What to wear to a studio newborn session
For newborn sessions neutral clothing is key. White, cream, tan, greys, black or even soft pastel colors. Bright neon colors DO NOT work well against newborn skin. I will have you hold the baby close to your body so having bright colors can be a skin tone disaster. Knit textures and lace textures also look pretty on camera.
What to wear to your outdoor family session
Clothing is so important in making a great image! I love colors and layers. I recommend wearing layers as much as possible to add texture and interest to the picture. Chunky sweaters, clothing with lace, ruffles, buttons or knit texture. Accessorizing is the key! Bring out your funky boots, red heels or lace tights, hats, scarves, ect. I always tell people to dress like yourself...a more colorful and accessorized version of yourself. Hair and makeup is also important. Glamour makeup looks great on camera. Eyelashes are key to maternity and boudoir sessions!
For a family session I recommend picking a few different colors and sticking to them for the entire family. The key is to coordinate but not look like clones. Remember that layers look great on camera. Here is a link to a pinterest account I created to give you an idea of how to dress the family session. http://pinterest.com/brianalugo/family-portraits-clothing/
What to bring to a baby studio session or cake smash session
For newborn sessions I have tons of hats, headbands and wraps here. I also have all of the backdrops and posing props here as well. Just bring baby
For older babies bring a few different outfits and we will decide what works best. Sometimes just a cute little hat and diaper cover look adorable in a pictures. For boys bow ties and vests are really cute. I do have many boys hats, ties and other props here to choose from but feel free to bring along any additional accessories. For baby girls I have lots of tutus, leggies, floral rompers, knit rompers, lace rompers, pearls, hats and headbands but also feel free to bring along anything that you think would work well for pictures.
