Planning outfits for your Boston baby photography session? Here are 3 things to keep in mind while shopping and/or going through your closet!
Clothing choices that are visually overwhelming 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.
Neutral + pastel colors are ideal when searching for baby and kids’ clothing options. Using a softer color palette will keep skin tones looking true-to-life and help minimize harsh color casts in your photographs.
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 are also necessary when you’re layering. Let me explain. When I photograph babies, I’m photographing the entire family, 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.
