Personality Portraits are one of my very favorite sessions! This type of children’s portrait session emphasizes capturing the magic of childhood. No props and no distractions. These photos are all about showcasing your child’s personality!

What to Wear

Choosing the right clothing makes a huge difference in your photos. These photos will have a very simplistic vibe, so we don’t want clothing to be a distraction.

Keep your children’s clothing as simple and classic as possible. Solids are the best, but a very subtle print or patterns, such as stripes, gingham, or floral, also works. Textures, like smocking and ruffles are also fine. Just remember, it’s about your child’s personality, and not about the clothes. Plain and simple is always best!

I suggest sticking to white, cream, light gray, and pastels. Lighter tones will photograph prettier on the white background.

You can also look to your interior design for clothing inspiration. If you plan to use your printed images in color, make sure you are choosing clothing colors and styles that complement your home. Again, I find that sticking with lighter-toned neutrals, pastels, and earth tones will photograph beautifully and match most any home.

For babies, I love a bubble or romper! Feel free to bring a few photogenic toys, like wooden blocks. This can help keep them happy and distracted while not taking away from their cute face.

Shoes are always welcome, but bare feet are super cute!

What to Avoid

I would suggest avoiding athletic wear and licensed characters, words, or other screen-printed features. This keeps the focus on your child and not their clothing.
