This is such a sweet twin newborn photography shoot at my studio in Bend, Oregon. Newborn photo are precious moments that capture the beauty and innocence of a new baby.
Choosing the right clothing for a newborn photo session can be overwhelming, especially when it’s your first time.
I’m excited to share that I have a studio in Bend, Oregon focused on newborn photography. I offer a “full newborn client closet” with many options for a baby girl or boy.
However, if you prefer to utilize your own clothing here are some tips.
One clothing option that is always a safe choice and guarantees a timeless look is neutral tones. In this blog post, I will explore the benefits of wearing neutral tones in a lifestyle newborn photo session and how it can elevate the overall look of your images.
Neutral tones such as white, cream, beige, and soft pastels have a timeless appeal that has been popular for centuries, and this doesn’t look like it’s fading away any time soon. These colors are also versatile and complement any skin tone. They don’t distract from the subject’s face and bring out the baby’s beauty in a subtle and classic way.
Complements your Environment:
Lifestyle newborn photo sessions are usually taken in your home or in my lifestyle studio, and the benefit of using neutral tones in these images is that they perfectly blend in with your surrounding, making it a natural background for your baby. It connects the photo to your family’s environment and adds an extra touch to the image’s composition.
Easy to Coordinate Family Outfits:
When you wear neutral tones, you have a significantly higher chance of coordinating family outfits. Neutral tones are easy to match with, and it’s hard to go wrong with a simple white shirt, cream cardigan, or beige pants. They help in creating a cohesive look for your family photos and allow your baby to stand out in the photo.
Offers Brighter, Warm, and Airy Vibes :
Neutral color options like white and cream help create brighter and more airy vibes in the photo session. This is particularly important for lifestyle newborn photography, where you aim to capture the baby’s natural surroundings. The colors help maintain a bright and calm composition, giving the session a serene ambiance that allows the baby to shine.
