How many outfits does my baby need for a session? Boston Newborn Photographer

As a Boston Newborn Photographer I have many moms ask when planning their sessions about outfit choices for their baby. How many outfits should they take out and prepare? I typically tell them to have a few choices out and we can decide while were shooting! I always suggest keeping it neutral and not too busy with patterns. I love to keep the focus on the baby and the connection with the parents. I know as a mom you spend all these months preparing for your baby and finding the most adorable clothing options, so I want to use whatever you love! Sometimes we end up only using one outfit the entire session, like with this little man in the photos below. We stuck with a simple white onsie. I am obsessed with the classic clean look that gives all the attention to that sweet little boy!

Other times we end up switching a few different outfit choices to give some variation in the photos. Other options are to keep the outfit choices to a minimum and use more colorful options with wraps and swaddle blankets. Sometimes using just a simple color without patterns and having a fun pattern on the crib sheet or blanket below baby is nice too!
