What to wear guide

What to wear for your photography session with Seattle Motherhood photographer Casey Louise

Styling assistance for Maternity, Newborn and Motherhood sessions

When you schedule your photography session with me, I offer a client closet and styling assistance! Three cornerstones to my images to keep in mind are 1.)Skin  2.)Connection  3. )Creamy Earth Tones. Maternity and Newborn photography sessions both allow two different outfits. My favorite choices are one that honors and shows your body during that stage of motherhood. This includes, over sized sweaters or teddys with underwear or undergarments only. The second option can be more classic and modest. A beautiful dress or an outfit you feel comfortable and confident in!  

Any photoshoot you book with me will show your love and connection which is always the focus! If you plan your clothing to compliment my editing style, that will make your images even more stunning. This guide applies to everyone in the session including the men and children! If you follow this clothing guide, your photography session will turn out better than you ever imagined! 

1.) Solid neutral colors are best! Try to avoid patterns. Some patterns depending on our location will clash with the backdrop of your photoshoot. If you have a dress that has a pattern feel free to send me a picture and I can give you feedback. 

2.) Earth tones, white, black, cream, grey, tan, rust, and forest greens are the best colors! I have examples of earth tones in my portfolio and I am happy to send you examples. Earth tones give you a lot of options to express your personality. 

3.) Choose a style that you love and feel comfortable and confident in! Feel free to pick clothing in any texture or fit that speaks to you! The most important thing to consider when deciding what to wear is if you feel confident in your clothes! Men also need to wear clothing that fits their body well. It’s about more than just colors. Finding a shirt that fits properly will make him feel confident and happy with the images. 

I DO NOT recommend wearing blues (unless it’s jeans), bold patterns/stripes, bright or neon colors, logos! 

I can’t wait to start planning your photography session together! I love having you send me pictures of outfits you have already picked out. Here are a few other blogs that will help you plan for your sessions!
