I've been asked why i dont shoot with white in my maternity sessions.
Firstly I'm a colour girl all the way! White is not really my style. Other photographers shoot in white as they love it and it shows in their images that they do - and I shoot in colour because I love colour. We shoot what we love.
If you are choosing a photographer for your photo session go for one that you love their style as we all shoot differently. We shoot the style that we love - that's the joy of art.
I shoot indoors on handpainted canvas backdrops. Most of my backdrops are medium, florals or dark which all goes with the style of lighting that i use. All of the dresses that i have are varying colours from black, lilacs, pinks, gold and all the way to a beige. Just not much in white for me :).
How awesome are all these dads for getting out of their comfort zones and not wearing white shirts! I usually recommend a colour for dad or boys depending on what dresses the mum chooses. And kudos to the dad who wore a pink top to match in with the pinks of his wife and daughter! Love it! 💗💗💗
I usually advise for your partner or boys to not wear white shirts - because your eye goes to the brightest part of the image. So in my images, if mum is in a gorgeous gold or magenta dress, on a darker backdrop and you have dad in a white shirt - then hey presto! your eyes will automatically go straight to that bright white shirt! So for my style of sessions I usually don't recommend white shirts for dads or you would see his shirt rather than all their gorgeous faces.
