Words of Advice / Things to Think About
  • PLEASE AVOID LARGE RUFFLES (they will just stress you)
  • PLEASE USE DIAPER COVERS (bulky diapers are not pretty n’ pics)
  • CHOOSE FLOWING COLORS AMONG SIBLINGS
  • AVOID LARGE GRAPHIC PRINTS
  • HAVE A BACK UP OUTFIT FOR VERY LITTLE ONES (accidents happen)
  • AVOID BRINGING TOO MUCH STUFF TO YOUR SHOOT (more to carry)
  • I SIMPLY ADORE THIS LIL’ OUTFIT!

PRETTY n’ PASTELS:

This Sweet Little One was Dressed in the Sweetest Lil’ MultiStriped Pastel Dress! As you can see they also put a little hair accessory, however it was not too large for her head. Large accessories can take a way from the cuteness of the baby and can also create a discomfort.
Here is a similar dress
