What to wear to a studio newborn session

For newborn sessions neutral clothing is best. Colors such as white, cream, tan, greys, black or even soft pastel colors work great on camera.. 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!  The key is to coordinate but not look like clones. I love colors and layers. I recommend wearing layers as much as possible to add texture and interest to the picture. We live in Florida where majority of our surroundings are green, so wearing other bold contrasting colors work great to make the image pop. My favorite colors are darker blues. browns, burnt oranges, maroon  and mustard yellow. These colors work great year- round with out green surroundings. Neon colors can look a bit cheap on camera, so be careful with the neon fashion trends. Accessorizing with  clothing with lace, ruffles, buttons, and knit textures always photograph well. Don't be afraid to add in a fancy sun hat, floral hair pieces, funky boots, lace tights, hats, scarves, ect. I always tell people to dress like yourself...a more colorful and accessorized version of yourself. Professional looking Hair and makeup is also important.  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, suspenders, 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.
