Chic, Delicate, & Classic | Inspired by Four Elegant Color Ideas

4 Gorgeous Colors to Create Girly, Chic, and Dainty Newborn Photos | Inspired by a Love of Muted Tones

Newborn Styling 101: Be Timeless

When designing a custom newborn session, there are three aspects to my brand that are essential in creating some of the Best Houston Newborn Photography: Classic, Timeless, and Vintage-Inspired. My motto has always been, "Why be trendy, when you can be timeless?" This in mind, I offer a great styling questionnaire to all of my expecting parents. This is where we talk about your nursery colors, likes, dislikes, must have poses, and even things such as sentimental items from home so you may incorporate a personal item into your session if you wish.

This in mind, when Lily's mother, Talitha, shared her color preferences with me, she mentioned she loves nude colors. I found inspiration for their girly, chic, and feminine newborn session in the most interesting of ways: through an eyeshadow palette! I headed to my master bath and studied some of my favorite groupings.

These four colors, listed above, make for an elegant color scheme for the most petite of clients: a precious newborn baby girl! When it comes to setting up for a session, everything is provided by me; all the dainty tiebacks, wraps, headbands, bowls, buckets, textiles, etc., it's all available in my client closet. The cream, for instance, looks spectacular against Lily's skin tone; her parents brought a pearl bracelet to add a sweet southern touch to the session, and I cannot stop swooning over her gallery! How lucky am I to photograph the most beautiful babies in all of Houston, Texas?

During my time with Lily, we focused on the blush pink and rosy tones, as well as mauve and even a vanilla cream! These colors are timeless, classic, and result in a fantastic gallery. During potato sack pose, for instance, I paired the fluffy cream flokati rug with an adorable rose headband to emphasize all things feminine and chic about a brand new little girl. From the moment of being earthside, Lily is super stylish!

In my Houston Baby Portrait Studio, you'll find (3) custom wood walls that make for stunning portraits! A dark wooden wall is a great option for my sessions because the texture is lovely with the vintage-inspired floor props I keep on hand. The cream, tan, and lace are all super girly while maintaining the vintage-inspired aspect of my newborn brand.

Finally, a cream distressed farmhouse bucket is a great way to encompass the nude color scheme for an elegant newborn girl photography session! This soft blush pink wrap is the perfect accent to little one's skintone; paired with a mauve pillow and rosy pink head piece accesorry, she is perfectly pink in all things nude!
