I’m all about being your unique self. So when deciding what to wear please be true to yourself and wear something you love and feel comfortable in. However, I know family and newborn photos are an important and sometimes a one off event. Think simplicity, comfort, complementing colours, hues and tones.
Please don’t dress to match, everyone in denim and white shirts is not such a good look. Steer clear of brand names, loud colours, pictures, T-shirts with Logos.. Peppa pig is adorable but not so much in photographs. Consider textures, a mix of wools, cottons, lace, silk and corduroy can create depth and intimacy. Long flowing dresses are a personal favourite and can complement a photograph beautifully.
I know this may all sound a little overwhelming, especially if you have a large family to dress. Please don’t let it be a stress to yourself. I want this to be a positive experience. I’m more than happy to give you further styling advice or refer you to some great Pinterest boards on family photography styling.
