Deciding on a photographer for your newborn photo session is an important decision. Once that is done, the next question is what to wear. I hope you find this newborn photos clothing guide helpful in planning your session.

Mom’s Clothing

For mom, soft neutral tones such as white, grey,  and beige photograph beautifully against your baby's skin. Feel free to pull a few things out of your closet for me to peek at. A maxi dresses, or a stylish sweater over leggings or jeans is pretty, as well as anything you feel good in.

Dads clothing

For dad, I recommend jeans and a neutral t-shirt or a button-down shirt. Make sure you are able to roll the sleeves and leave the shirt untucked. V-neck sweaters look great over button-ups as well in the wintertime.


Feel free to request to get your hair and makeup professionally done from our hair and makeup artist who comes to your home, for a fresh and luminous look.  Remember, the main focus is your baby,  you and your family bond. 

Siblings- For siblings, dress in similar color tones, but don't be afraid to let them wear something that shows off their personality too!   Avoid patterns and bright colors.
