all about style
When Amanda inquired about having her Newborn Session in the studio, she knew she definitely wanted a "Boho Style". I was so excited, because that is definitely the style I am drawn to as well, and we worked together to come up with the perfect color scheme, textures, and furniture. Suite Q Studio in Monterey was the perfect location to hold our session, with it's light hardwood floors, huge windows, and white walls. The green velvet couch was just the cherry on top! Amanda and I worked on coordinating the families outfits, throw pillows and blankets to compliment the setup. I can't stress enough - you can never go wrong with neutrals! They flatter everyone, and they are perfect for baby's skin tone. When planning your session, it's super important to think about the colors and style of your current home. These photos are hopefully going to be hanging on your walls, so you want to make sure they coordinate and make sense. Work with your photographer to create the vision you have in your head. Communicate what type of look you are going for, and trust them when they give their thoughts on colors and textures. Some fabrics and colors photograph better than others. Some shades will color cast onto subject's skin. We do this for a living, we know what looks good on camera and what doesn't . Amanda did an excellent job of picking out simple, neutral, beautiful pieces for everyone in the family. Even their sweet pup coordinated perfectly!
