What to wear for your family photoshoot | London Photographer

Updated: 4 days ago

Unsure about how to dress for your maternity or family photoshoot in London? I'm just a call or email away before every shoot to help you and your family in selecting your outfits. Read on to find out more...


It's most important to feel yourself and don't feel like you're dressing in a way you usually wouldn't. I want all my clients to feel comfortable, confident and beautiful.


I generally recommend quite neutral tones - think whites, beige, greys, pastels etc. - they are timeless and elegant, and come out lovely whether we're in your home or outside. For mums, delicate floral prints or chunky knits with some texture (depending on the English weather!) are also lovely. Try to avoid bold patterns as these distract in the images and make them look very busy. Your partner could wear beige chinos and a white or light blue shirt, for example. Think complimentary colours between you, rather than matching each other.


For maternity photoshoots, comfort is especially important! I recommend clothing that showcases your bump, whether that's a floaty dress with an empire line that's more fitted just below the chest and then loose over your bump, or a dress that's generally more fitted. In terms of fabrics, linen, cotton or silk are beautiful in the summer, whilst knitted dresses (especially if we're heading outside!) are lovely for the colder months. I would try to avoid black as it can actually make your bump look smaller.
