What to wear


"When we have each other, we have everything"


"Focus on coordinating and complementing each other - not matching" is the best advice I can give you.  When your significant other or children want to join in the session, coordinate but try not to match. Matching 100% is often over done and not very flattering. It looks so much better when you coordinate with a similar color scheme for everyone in the photos. Maybe neutral colors for the guys and pastels for the girls.... Something similar but not exact!

For Mum

As a mother of three myself, I understand that after  having a new baby, you’re not always feeling your best.  The most important thing is that you should feel  comfortable in what you are wearing. For Mum, warm  soft neutral tones in greys, beiges and pastel tones are  ideal. Remember that the images will be closely cropped,  and your baby will be the centre of attention in   the image. Your hands will however be visible, so it is  important to have either nicely painted nails in a nude  colour or no nail polish at all, with nice clean nails.  


Feel Beautiful - I want you to do anything you need to do  in order to feel beautiful on the day of your newborn  session. If that means hiring a makeup artist or getting a  blowout, then do that. If it means splurging on a brand  new dress that makes you feel exquisite than do that.  Trust me when I say this, how you feel about yourself will  make a big difference in how you see the final images  from your gallery.



For Dad

I recommend plain T-shirts. Whites, greys or beiges are  great, but also please bring a simple black T-shirt with  you. A white button up shirt is another option if you’d  prefer that. Very often I photograph Dad's with no tops  on, of course it's up to each of you if you want the skin on  skin shots or to show off tattoos.   A haircut and beard  trim or shave will make Dad look and feel good. Clean  hands and nails are most important, especially when  photographing your tiny newborn baby in Dad‘s hands. 


For Siblings

Pretty much the same rules apply for Mum & Dad.  Bring  some lightly toned outfits.  I would avoid wearing fluffy  dresses and tutus, as it takes too much attention away  from your newborn.

When a sibling is holding baby, I tend to leave  baby wrapped for safety reasons, especially if the sibling is in the 2-4 yr range (toddlers are   wiggly and can just let go!) I have heaps of   gorgeous wraps to suit every wardrobe so you   need not worry about that at all.




I do advise on what not to wear also, here are a few no-go's...

  • No Logo's or Checks
  • No thin stripes, they cause a weird wavy blurry patter in your images.
  • No neon colours
  • And no shiny fabrics.



One more thing, Shoes & Pants – don’t worry about your shoes at all, your feet will not be in the picture so make sure to wear some comfortable socks lol! Pants could be in the picture just a little bit so dads can wear jeans or khakis and mums can wear whatever is comfortable (black or white yoga pants are perfect!)
