How to Prepare for your Baby Photo Session

Of course these are only guidelines and not rules, but in previous experience the sessions are a lot smoother when the guidelines are followed. Feel free to make recommendations of things to add to this list. We are always looking to make things easier on new parents & babies!

The day of your session

For wardrobe options, here are the recommendations

The goal is to have options to choose from in case you change your mind day-of, or baby decides to make a mess. We will not use every single outfit option, but these are the typical choices that have proven to be classic & timeless, and photograph beautifully.

The idea is to make sure your baby is the start of the image, and to make sure you all look like you’re going to the same place (whether it’s a coffee date, pic-nic, rodeo, diner party, or couch day, etc.). If mom is wearing jeans and a tank top, dad should also be wearing casual pants and a neutral top. However if she is in a fancy bra and yoga pants, odds are that dad without a shirt wearing jeans is the best pairing. Not to worry, you will be guided in-studio, but make sure you bring all your preferred wardrobe options! Check out our inspiration board for ideas!

Don’t have anything nice to wear? No problem! We have a wardrobe stylist who would love to work with you in finding the perfect coordinating outfits for your session!
