Dressing for an in-studio session is different than dressing for an outdoor photo session.

what to wear for your studio newborn session


It’s actually easier!

Here are my top five tips on how to dress for your in-studio newborn session.

Tip #1 – Keep it simple. The focus of these sessions is the connection with your loved ones. Simple clothing keeps that focus, and cuts distractions. Solid neutral are the way to go!

Tip #2 – Less is More. You probably wouldn’t wear a basic t-shirt or tank top to your photo session in the forest, right? It’s not great there, but it’s perfect in the studio!

Tip #3 – Keep it soft. You are going to be snuggling your baby. Skip the beaded tops and scratchy fabrics. Wear something you would be ok wrapping your baby in.

Tip #4 – Same rules apply for older siblings. Keep their clothing soft, neutral, and simple. NO logos or busy, bright patterns. Boys can even go without a shirt in some photos. So can dads, for that matter!

Tip #5 – The little things count. DO pay attention to your nails. Make sure your nails are nicely groomed because they will most likely show in your photos. Skip the bright polish and go with lighter, neutral colors. Or none at all! As for shoes, we most likely will be going barefoot, so you can plan for that. This is not the time for those sparkly stilettos. (we can plan another session for those! 😉
