Using vibrant colors in your newborn photography session

Creating a beautiful color palette that makes a statement

Hudson Valley, Western Connecticut, Westchester County, Albany, and the Berkshires Newborn Photographer

I love a good neutral color palette, however if you are drawn to color, I absolutely love the statement you can make incorporating bold colors into your baby’s newborn photos. Some styling tips to making color work seamlessly in your session:

  • Have your pop of color be with your newborn, while mom and dad dress in subtle neutral colors. This will allow your baby to be the focal point, without the photos looking too busy or uncoordinated

  • choose one bold color and mix and match different tones and textures within that palette to add visual interest, such as with blankets or hats.

  • When done right, adding color to your baby’s session can bring so much life to your photos. Think of bright teals or rusty oranges, or vibrant pinks and purples. The possibilities are endless!
