This is often a sticking point for people once they’ve booked a photo shoot, so I thought I would go over some important points to help out. The most important thing to remember is that you are investing in a piece of art to compliment your home and decor. If you have white walls, it probably wouldn’t be wise to go for a seamless white background in your photographs…and the clothing choice is equally important.
I would suggest that you opt for clothing that has staying power through the years as you don’t want it to feel dated before it’s time, however you may also not want to play it too ‘safe’ as this can inhibit the impact of an image. Below is a collection of clothing to give you an idea of fashion that works well in front of the camera:

Please remember that these are just suggestions to help anyone out who may be struggling in the wardrobe department, it’s essential that you choose clothes that your child is comfortable in and that reflects their personality. However, it is best to steer away from local football strips or character t-shirts like Barny the dinosaur! Also, don’t put a pony tail in your little girls hair, it will make her look bald!
Lastly, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you’re still at a loss…I’ll be happy to help :)
