My goal is to provide you with a stress free experience, and one of the most stressful parts of photoshoot planning seems to be figuring out what to wear.

What photographs well? Will it look good on me? Will it make me look good in photos? And my favorite - I DON'T HAVE TIME TO HUNT SOMETHING DOWN.

I've spent time curating a small collection of flattering dresses for mamas to wear in a range of sizes, so you have one less thing to think about when prepping for your session.

I've intentionally selected dresses that are flexible for maternity and post-partum mamas, to ensure you feel beautiful and comfortable during your session. Most dresses aren't actually maternity dresses though - women in all stages are welcome to wear these items. 

If you'd like to shop on your own and are looking for specific recommendations, the last section links some recommended items, which I update monthly.

I also recommend choosing a favorite and a back-up just in case you don't love how it looks on you! I bring a pop-up changing tent to your session to change if we are at an outdoor location.

If you're really nervous about fit, you're welcome to set up a time to stop by my home and try on a few options.  

Do I let you know which one I want?

This will depend on what you choose. I always recommend coordinating not entirely matching to make the photos look harmonious and cohesive. I also recommend considering your location and time of year to make sure everyone is comfortable!

Client Wardrobe FAQ

Most of the dresses in the client closet are size flexible! I select items that are flowy and flattering on all bodies so you feel beautiful and comfortable.

The dress name links to the brand page so you can review their size chart, and I include 'fits size' to give you an idea!

What should the rest of the family wear?

How do I know the dress will fit me?

I totally am a fan of shopping your own closets and wearing things you already own. I'lll periodically update this section with color palettes and full family style guides to help spark some ideas of what to pair together for your session. 

In the end, I promise what you wear doesn't matter quite as much as we photographers make it out to be - if you feel comfortable and like yourself, that is the most important part!

September 2023 Women's Favorites

Here are some of my clients, with their families beautifully styled, but still feeling very much like themselves. The most important thing I'd like you to remember is that these photos are for you, not me, Instagram, Facebook, or anything else.

There is nothing wrong with going super casual (I'm talking joggers and those real good fuzzy socks) if that is what feels most true to you and this season of life. Yes, I'm down for wardrobe changes if you want. Photographers will put a lot of emphasis on "what to wear" - and it does effect the feel of photos - but sometimes, the feeling you want to remember is comfort. 

Send me a message with anywhere you're stuck or would like guidance, and I'd be happy to stop by (or Facetime) and help put things you already own together.
