What To Wear?
YOU - The main focus on the shoot is on your little ball of energy… but I do sneak in a couple family pictures. I never suggest wearing all white (As that is the color of my main backdrop), but it is also important that your little one remains the primary focus. Wearing solid colors like blue, grey, beige, or coordinating colors (You wear pink, your husband wears grey, your little one is decked out in his/her birthday gear… etc. Feel free to be creative and fun… it is a birthday after all! Also, dress weather appropriate in case it’s nice enough to go outside. You may bring a couple outfits to get my opinion if you are unsure.
BABY - I personally love layers, patterns, frills, lace and colors. It will be easier to choose when you get your little one’s birthday outfit together. I recommend two outfits (One for cake smash that can get messy & one for family and portrait pictures. I also have many tutus & accessories, but I always encourage bringing your own.
