… what to wear to your tomatobaby life+style photo-session …

This is always a question that is asked … “what should we wear?”  Here’s just a few suggestions … and watch for our monthly posts for more suggestions!

family, individual or senior sessions …

  • depending on you and your child’s personality | style … you can choose solid colors accented with fresh modern pieces … we love fun!  You can put together a fun & funky outfit, or keep it simple.  We want you to be comfortable … if you don’t like wearing a white button-down shirt & pants … don’t wear it!
  • sometimes the location will determine what to wear … urban settings will be very different from a grassy meadow.
  • if you do wear jeans … remember they can be dressed up or down.
  • special note to moms & dads … don’t worry if your little independent-dressers rule the house!  let’s capture them as they are … right now … at this moment in their lives.
  • basically … whatever your style is … we say “bring it on!”
  • still a little nervous?  no worries, at the time of booking your session, we can discuss more your style and what you are looking for in order to help suggest “what to wear …”
maternity or belly sessions …
  • this is always a beautiful moment in your journey to parenthood.  Although we’ll photography at any point, we recommend about 2-months before your due date.  Bellies are usually just the right size for capturing this special moment.
  • suggested clothing for belly sessions would be any pre-pregnancy clothing.  We want to show off your beautiful curves.  Pretty, lacy, modern, or funky tops like camisoles, tanks, or shrugs that we can pin at the breasts … to revel the belly is very flattering.  Don’t want to show too much … that’s fine too.  We’re here to capture you in the moment and will keep the environment comfortable and fun.
  • jeans that can be folded down, yoga-style pants or even a skirt that fits just below the belly is a nice alternative.

Before I let you go … would love to share a couple videos I’ve done …
