Did you know that over 3.6 million babies were born in the US last year? If your bundle of joy was among them, congratulations! There’s nothing quite so beautiful as a new person to love.
Having a baby photoshoot to commemorate their birth is an awesome idea to document the happy occasion. Read on for some outfit ideas to make this photography session a success.
Seasonal aesthetics are a favorite of many new parents. They’re unique and showcase your baby as part of the natural world during the time that they were born. Summer babies look awesome surrounded by bright hues while those born in winter look great when put around holiday decorations.
Spring and fall babies definitely get the best deal here, though. Cornucopias filled with warm autumn colors are ideal for those born in September through November. Spring babies also make out well with pastels, floral arrangements, and springtime grass.
Bows, Hats, and Head Wraps
Bows and hats are always good choices for newborn photoshoots. If you have a little girl and want to add a touch of beauty to the picture, a small pink or yellow bow that features a simple pattern is an awesome choice. Hats are perfect for unisex baby outfits and add a pop of color to the head.
You also may like head wraps for your newborn if you’re interested in a less common accessory. These wraps come in a wide variety of colors and styles so that you can pair them with any outfit imaginable. They’re a unique take on classic bows because they’re so much larger while still having the same air of adorable elegance.
Simple Solid-Color Onesies
While it can be tempting to indulge in intricate patterns and sophisticated baby fashion ideas, solid colors are a classic for a reason. Not only are they eternally chic, but they also don’t detract attention from the areas of the photo that matter most. Your baby’s cute face won’t be lost in an array of bold patterns.
Minimalist colors often include pastels, which are perfect for solid-color onesies. However, you can also choose neutral hues like white or beige. Pair this onesie with a matching backdrop and head wrap and you’ll wind up with a beautifully put-together image.
If you plan to be in some photos with your baby, a swaddle is a perfect choice for mother/newborn images. You can hold the baby in the swaddle and look at them lovingly to showcase your bond.
You also can zoom in on the swaddled baby and pay attention to their peaceful face. Since swaddles come in a huge array of colors and styles, there’s something perfect out there for your beloved baby.
