The Art of Newborn Photography in St. Louis: A Simple Styling Trick

Filed in Family, Motherhood, Newborn — April 26, 2024

If you’re worried about missing the newborn window for a studio session, fear not! We can still capture those sweet and snuggly moments even with babies older than 6 weeks. Let’s chat about the styling us used from the Studio Wardrobe for this session because I absolutely loved it.

I get it—white or neutrals might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but here’s why I swear by it as a styling choice:

  1. It’s timeless. While prints and trends come and go, a white henley or oatmeal sweater paired with soft jeans or khaki pants for dad will never go out of style.
  2. During certain times of the year, the weather outside can sometimes make things feel a bit dim. But that pop of white on mom or dad helps bounce around the natural light, brightening up the whole scene.
  3. Pops of color really pop! If you decide to accessorize with a cute headband or swaddle, the white backdrop helps that item shine even brighter.

If you’re feeling like you missed out on a newborn session or simply want images with that same cozy vibe, shoot me a DM or email (! My studio schedules during the daytime offer lots of availability and keeping with only one session a day, let’s make some magic happen together.
