The idea of organizing and, possibly, even purchasing outfits for our photo shoot would have been daunting when we had so many questions on the email about this! In light of this, we advise you to consider your family’s clothing as soon as you’ve scheduled your appointment.

Top 5 tricks to dress up your kid for a photoshoot

Comfort is the first and best thing.

Ensure simplicity. Don’t bring your entire sea of collections! It is advisable to choose one costume and a few backups in case of an emergency rather than changing outfits frequently, which will stress a baby. The main goal should be to keep the infant content and relaxed so that the photographer can catch their adorable smiles. If the baby is comfortable, it’s a guarantee that a smile will arrive on its way.

  1. Put the shoes away.

Shoes are not necessary for picture sessions with infants who cannot walk or stand, just as they are not necessary for photo sessions outside a photographer’s studio. A general rule is that you shouldn’t introduce something during a photo shoot where you’re paying for a photographer’s time if it’s not something they would typically wear. Your kid might be distracted by the shoes and take them off, or they might keep falling off during the shot, necessitating a ten-minute costume modification. A fussy infant will result from all of this.

  1. Pick soft and neutral colors for the baby.

We always advise picking soft, neutral colors for your family to wear when having a photo shoot with your infant at home. Colors that convey this smooth and gentle sensation will typically perform incredibly well in the images because babies are soft and delicate beings. This does not mean everyone must wear all white or cream colors or ensembles that match. Instead, we advise you to base your family’s clothing around a color scheme of three to four hues.

  1. Toys and Props

During baby sessions, props and toys can be helpful. It can keep their tiny hands occupied and prevent them from putting them in their mouths, especially if they are teething. When you look back to your portraits in 20 years, use props that you will still like. This would also help look better and more colorful in photographs. To make the photos look funkier, fill the area with toys the baby plays with daily. So the images would look better with the happy face of the newborn.

  1. Don’t use bold print.

Baby bold prints should be avoided for a professional photo shoot. Different patterns frequently fall in and out of fashion. Instead, select simple, neutral hues or delicate vintage designs for your child’s photos if you prefer to keep the artwork ageless. Think about incorporating several textures if you want to offer variation. Knit sweater and lace-trimmed dress. Also detracting from your child’s face are loud prints.

Dressing a baby for the photo shoot is not a piece of cake! It needs dressing for the baby, the whole family, and the house. And most importantly, the comfort of the baby also matters the most! Else you will end up clicking only the crying face of your baby. That is why we suggest you follow the above guidelines and apply them. 


Happy photoshoot!
