what to wear …
o colors that complement your child’s features
o stripes, plaids, or polka dots are all great. Patterns are fun and add some modern style to the photos.
o sweaters … they provide great texture, especially in black and white images
o denim, cords, cargos, skirts, bloomers and Baby Legs … all good things!
o hats provide great framing for faces. Knit hats, sun hats, cowboy hats, hoods on sweaters — you name it, it’ll be cute!
o bare feet … let’s see those piggies!
o just a diaper and cover … simple, classic, beautiful
o anything that helps to show off your little one’s individuality. A shirt with his name embroidered on it? Classic! A polka dot dress and her cowboy boots? Adorable! Nothing but a t-shirt (and I mean nuthin’!)? Too cute for words.
o did I mention color? color is fun, adds freshness, makes eyes stand out and flatters skin tones!
o outfit changes are a good thing! unless you have a kiddo who hates changing clothes…in that case, try layering things so it’s an easy and stress-free outfit change
things to think about…
o Avoid anything with trademarked animated characters or graphics, unless they have special meaning to your family.
o Skip constricting clothes that aren’t good for playtime
o Stay away from anything too “matchy-matchy” with outfits. The days of matching jeans and polo shirts are gone! Think modern and playful. Like if you were joining another family in the park for a picnic!
When thinking of the entire family I like to suggest that parents stick to more neutral colors like greys, khaki, black, navy, cream and light blue or light pink and let the little ones wear the brighter bursts of color and pattern.
