Here are our top picks for stylish and comfortable baby outfits that are perfect for any newborn photoshoot!

The Classic Onsie

First up, the classic onesie. A soft and cozy onesie is one of my favorite ways to photograph your precious baby at their newborn photo session! Don’t go cheap here. My favorite is the Kimono style. And for the perfect finishing touch, don’t forget to add a cute little bow to the outfit! My selection of 1inch bows to use during your session includes white, pink and blue.

Sweater knits

Next, you can’t go wrong with a comfy knit outfit. Whether you opt for pastel colors or neutral a knit outfit will always look super cute and keep baby warm and cozy. I especially love a 2 piece footless outfit that allows me easy access to their feet and belly buttons.

You can’t go wrong with a diaper cover and wrap. First, newborns, often, want to be wrapped for most of their session. Secondly, this is the best way to capture all of their tiny details without having to disturb them.

We hope these suggestions have given you some inspiration for styling the perfect newborn photoshoot outfit.
