Cedarburg Newborn Sessions: Choosing Your Colors


One of the most fun things to choose for your Cedarburg newborn session is COLORS! Colors play a significant role in creating images that look good together and in your home.  You can change the entire look and feel of your session by going with soft pastel colors, or vibrant, colorful colors. This is important to think about if you plan on hanging your images up, or want to create a cohesive album of your gallery!

  1. Consider the Season 

The time of year can be a helpful guide when it comes to picking colors for your baby’s photoshoot. For example, warm colors like red, orange, and brown are perfect for a fall-themed photoshoot, while pastel shades in blue, pink, and green are perfect for a spring-themed shoot. Using colors from the season they’re born is such a great way to help you choose your colors. Not only will accessories we choose make more sense, like florals for spring and summer cedarburg newborn sessions, and little snowflakes and snowmen for winter babes!

  1. Coordinate with your Home Decor 

Another way to ensure your baby’s photos will look amazing in your home is by choosing colors that coordinate with your home’s décor. For example, if your home’s color palette is mostly warm shades, we can use a cream or beige backdrop and add pops of warm colors like orange or brown. If pastels are more your style, shades of pink or blue will complement your home’s soft décor. You can also use colors that compliment your little ones nursery! I love using both colors and accessories that work with the theme you’ve chosen.

  1. Vibrant Colors

For a more visually striking photo, you may want to consider using bold colors to make your baby’s features pop. I have lots of Mom’s that love to use blues to bring out eyes, or pinks that compliment their baby’s dark hair. Mixing bold colors can be a fun way to create a unique photo. Lots of photographers stick to neutrals and soft colors, but your Cedarburg newborn session doesn’t have to be JUST soft- they can be bold and vibrant too!

  1. Accessorize 

Finally, accessories can go a long way in adding color and personality to your baby’s photoshoot. You can incorporate pops of color with headbands, hats and layers. They can also be used as additional texture and to add interest to the final images. Take a peek at my portfolio to get an idea of what the Tara Fay Photography studio has to offer!

Choosing colors for your Cedarburg newborn session can be a lot of fun and quite exciting. There is no right or wrong choice, but it is good practice to consider the season, your home’s décor, and colors that add some personality to your session. Above all, it’s important to choose colors that you love and reflect the personality of your family. By keeping these tips in mind, you should be able to create stunning images that you will treasure.
