Planning outfits for your Boston baby photography session? Want to know the easiest way to get portraits that feel soft and timeless? Choose your outfits WISELY! Certain colors and styles lend themselves better to simple and classic vibes. Here are 3 things to keep in mind while shopping and/or going through your closet!
1. Keep It Simple
Being intentional when selecting outfits for your Boston baby photography session is so important. If there is one thing that will have the most impact on the overall feel of your images, it’s clothing choice. Visually overwhelming outfit selections will take interest away from your sweet little one and the rest of your family. Avoid busy patterns and clothes with characters, text or logos on them.
2. Choose Colors Wisely
Neutral and pastel colors are ideal when searching for baby and kids’ clothing options. Neutrals keep skin tones looking true to life and help minimize harsh color casts. Consider pastels, creams and whites when selecting your colors as a softer palette will lend itself better to the light and classic style
3. Consider Complimentary Clothing
The idea behind keeping outfits simple and using soft colors is two-fold. Yes, these things are important because they highlight the subject and photograph well– but they also make coordinating with others MUCH easier. At your Boston baby photography session we won’t just be photographing your baby- your family is included, too! So, we have to keep the outfits of everyone in mind when planning. Simpler pieces are easy to layer and pair with other outfits.
