Tips for what to wear for newborn photo session

1. What should my newborn baby wear for photoshoot?

Good news is, you don't need to worry about your baby's outfits. Your newborn photographer will provide everything for your little one including knit rompers, wraps in your favorite colors, cute outfits etc. There are three options that your newborn baby might be wearing for family portrait. The first option is going naked. Yes, you heard that right. Your baby will go completely naked, without diaper for their photos. With professional posing, positioning and artistic angle from your photographer, all you can see is beautiful perfect photos that ready to show the world.

- Your newborn baby can be wrapped for photos. As an experienced newborn photographer, I have different wrapping technique to guarantee that your family photos will be beautiful.

- Your baby can be dressed in a cute solid colour knit outfit. They are a stylish and practical choice, especially if parents prefer to have their newborn clothed for the photoshoot.The most favorite choices are white, pink, tan.

2. What should I dress older siblings for family photoshoot?

The rule of thumb is: wear something simple and comfortable. Avoid clothing with busy patterns, large logos, or distracting graphics. These can draw attention away from the main focus, which is the family and the newborn.

A solid color outfit is always a perfect choice for family photoshoot.

For big brother, short sleeves fitted shirt or T-shirt is perfect.

If you want to dress big sister wearing a dress, make sure you put on a pair of bike shorts underneath to avoid any exposure of undergarment.

I get it! You just gave birth and nothing fit properly!
