Consider your background
If you are taking photos in front of a backdrop, consider what you are wearing. I remember and image my sister, her husband and newborn son took where they were all wearing black in front of a black backdrop. She and her husband look like floating heads holding a baby.
These photos will be hanging on your walls and treasured for years to come. By choosing simple, classic clothes you will help give your images a timeless feel.
Form-fitting clothing, but you still need to feel comfortable and beautiful – maxi dresses always look beautiful, wear solids (solid colours photograph best) – don’t get too “matchy-matchy” flattering fits please, and look at the colours in your home for baby: a summer once (in winter as well), girls can wear a little bow or flower headband, anything cute…and cuddly beautiful swaddle blanket…for those cuddly photos.
