Your little family has grown just a little bit bigger with the addition of a new baby! At your baby’s newborn photography session you have the option of hopping in the pictures with your new little one and taking some adorable snuggling up to baby pictures. A newborn session can be all about baby and we can keep the focus on baby during the entire session or we can do a little mix and do some pictures of momma and daddy with baby, daddy with baby and momma with baby. The choice is totally up to you and we can discuss this during the planning phase of your newborn session. If you would like some pictures with baby, we will go over the poses that we can do and clothing options too. The key to what to wear for pictures with your new baby is to keep it simple.
Here are some clothing tips that you might find helpful:
- for a “light & bright picture” wear white, ivory, cream or beige
- for a “dark & dramatic picture” wear grey or black
- plain clothing is best; avoid clothing with large logos, or words on them
- to keep baby from getting scratched or having a button print on his/her cheek please avoid shirts that have zippers or buttons on them
- long sleeves are best, but short sleeves are okay
Pants: jeans or khakis for dads. For mommas please wear whatever pants you are comfortable in, even if they are sweat or yoga pants. Your baby is going to be super tiny for their newborn session, so we will be taking pictures primarily from the waist up for both momma and daddy so that baby is not lost in the picture. Also, we are very sensitive to new mommas and how they are feeling about themselves right after having a baby. We only do the most flattering poses for new moms, so all you need to think about is your new little pumpkin and nothing else! Trust me, I’ve had two babies of my own, I totally get it!
