Call me crazy but I think dresses are FUN in photo sessions for girls. In my opinion dresses that have flow and skirts that twirl often bring about great smiles for a full outdoor photo session. These days dresses with a bit of a vintage look actually seem to be trending.
There are some great places to find dresses to accent the wardrobe of the family and throw in a ton of cuteness into your daughter’s portraits. Some shops like Joyfolie have beautiful flowy dresses for girls that have lots of vintage dreamy appeal. Another shop, Dollcake, offers some awfully fun frills. If you truly like a vintage style, check out Blu Pony Vintage!
If you are hoping to create some classic heirloom quality images to adorn the walls of your home, you might check out the elegant creations of Anna Triant. Her dresses will provide amazing accents against the natural environment for any outdoor photo session for your kids. Another fun store is Only Little Once.
Choose colors that complement her in the environment where you have your outdoor session. Soft colors that accent against the yellows, greens, and browns all around her. Soft pink, light blues, and creams do this well. Avoid neons or bold patterns that distract you from noticing her face first.
Then again, you don’t need to get dressed up. It’s an idea for photo sessions that I enjoy. If dressing up brings fun and enjoyment for your daughter, she may treasure the memory of her outdoor photo session more and appreciate the value you have placed on it.
When you wear flowy dresses to a photo session you can:
and just be.
