{we love…} kids’ style | washington dc children’s photographer

I admit it: I pin.

Do you? Pinterest is a fabulous way to collect little visual tidbits that inspire you, solve problems you might have, or help you organize ideas for a project you’re excited about. Pinning, for us visually-oriented folks, is like a file cabinet where every manila folder has morphed into an eye-catching picture. 

So, I’m inviting you into my photo file cabinet where I keep a trove of photography and photo session related “files” that inspire me, and help my clients bring their family photography visions to life. {We love} is a new blog feature specifically for sharing these inspirations with you. 

Today: Kids’ Style

In my (nearly) decade as a Washington DC children’s photographer, my photographic style has evolved into a very natural, playful, light-infused look that works really well with a timeless clothing style. Clothes with neutral tones like grey, navy, brown, or cream,  and clothes with texture like wool, linen, embroidered details, cable-knit, leather, and shearling, all interact with light in wonderful ways that enrich the photos I take. So, my pinterest board for Kids Style is filled with exactly those types of outfits. Many of the pins link directly to the source for the lovely item. I encourage you to take a look if you’re in need of inspiration when preparing for your photo session.

A couple of lovelies from this board:

And here are a few examples I love from sessions with my own clients. Notice the textures, neutral or softer toned palette, and simplicity of the outfits:

There’s lots of room for individual interpretation within my “style guidelines” of soft, neutral tones + texture. As you can see, each child’s personality shines out of the photo, and the clothing enhances without distracting from that sweet face! (by the way, can you spot my son? He’s the only one who’s in there twice – mama’s prerogative!)

If you’re a fellow “pinner” I’d love for you to follow my boards! If you or anyone you know is planning a children’s photo shoot, feel free to share my Kids’ Style board with them, for loads of inspiration and links to the shops that sell these great clothes.
