I am so excited for our milestone session! So much change happens during that first year and these sessions are the perfect way to capture their tiny, unique features as they grow.
I've put together a few tips to make your studio milestone session a huge success!
Honestly, I love a baby in a white (or very simple) onesie. Don't get me wrong, I love an adorable mini-outfit as much as the next girl, but I find that keeping clothing simple allows your little one to shine.
Generally, just keep clothing easy (like cotton or chambray). Shiny and really bright color clothing do not photograph well. Girl moms - as fun as hot pink is (I'm a #boymom so I'd love to buy something hot pink!) it just does not photograph well and ends up making everything have a pink glow. I love whites, creams, browns, pastels - soft, natural tones.
Have fun with accessories! I love headbands (again, simple), pearls, suspenders and hats. Don't even worry about shoes - let those chubby baby toes show!
I also recommend taking a peek at my client closet. I have collected some adorable pieces for little ones that I know will photograph well. These sessions, and my client closet, give you the opportunity to dress your child in pieces that you typically wouldn't buy - like knit shorts or a bonnet.
You can plan on several outfits for your little one.
