Newborn Session: What to Dress the Baby In
What Should My Newborn Wear During Our Photos?
You know I love color. I mean, I LOVE color. But neutrals have their place. One place is in a newborn session. New babies are so tiny, often a bit scrawny, and need to be documented in all of their blotchy glory. I didn’t get that when I was pregnant. I didn’t want a newborn session because I knew he would get cuter as he got older. While that was true, what I didn’t know was how much I would forget and want to remember. That little flaky head. Those skinny legs. That dark velvety hair. I also didn’t know how much I would have loved to have a photo of how I looked as a new parent. The exhaustion, awe, and love that is everything you are about in those early days…
Ok, I will pop back off of my soapbox. When photographing newborns around Seattle, I love when the clothes and blankets don’t overpower the baby. Sweet patterns or florals are perfect, as are soft colors and anything that will show of that sweet babe.
