Thinking of what to wear for your maternity photos? Or what to dress your baby or kids for their photoshoot? Take a look at these outfit suggestions!
Tube dress or a summer maxi dress
Neutral strapless bra and seamless underwear
Camisole top and jeans (not maternity ones)
Buttoned shirt or blouse
- Avoid baggy or loose-fitting tops or dresses. You’ll want to highlight your belly, not hide it!
- Your outfit(s) will determine the number of poses you can do, so choose wisely.
- Avoid visually-distracting patterns or neon colors for your and your partner’s wardrobe.
- Your partner can wear the usual jeans and simple button-down, cotton, or v-neck shirts.
- You can choose colors outside the neutral palette (creams, tans, whites), solid colors, and floral patterns.
- Pay attention to how your undergarments are seen through your clothing.
Babies (ages two weeks to one-year-old)
Simple lacey dress
Classic shirts and shorts (paired with a cute hat)
Knitted sweater or jumper
Tips for choosing outfits for your baby’s photos:
- Go for outfits that are comfortable and easy to remove like onesies or pajamas.
- Avoid neon-bright colors. The safe choices are neutral (white, beige, cream, etc.) and pastel colors (sky blue, lavender, light pink, etc.)
- Keep your baby’s outfit light so we can highlight your baby’s tiny frame.
- If a piece of clothing is not something your baby usually wears, remove it from your options.
- Don’t be afraid to adorn your little one with few accessories, such as headbands for girls and colorful socks for boys.
Kids (one-year-old and above)
Little flowy dresses
Blouse and skirt
Slogan shirt and jeans or khaki shorts
Sweater and overalls
Tips to dressing your kids for their photos:
- Go for vibrant colors if you feel they match your child’s energetic personality.
- Bring out your kid’s unique fashion style with accessories such as beanies, sunglasses, and headbands.
- Feel free to play around with textures, materials, and patterns to create a unique look for your kid(s).
- Color-coordinate your child’s outfit to ensure they don’t look awkward in the photos.
- Run out of ideas? Use your child’s hobby or interest as an inspiration!
