I want all of my clients to feel both comfortable and beautiful during their session. For those who would like a extra styling help, I offer a studio wardrobe full of natural cotton and silk gowns, dresses, slips, robes and more, in a wide range of sizes. These are available for mothers, babies and children for all sessions (I have a few things for dads as well!). Maternity clients especially love this option, but almost all of the dresses/gowns will work for both maternity and non-maternity portraits. Have a special request? Let me know and we can work out a custom gown purchase.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is a studio wardrobe?
A studio wardrobe is something I started offering several years ago as a way to help my clients save time and money. I have a variety of dresses and other pieces that my clients can wear for their session. I take care of the shopping, coordinating, steaming, and laundry, so all you have to do is show up and change into the outfits I have coordinated for your family.
What sizes do you have for your clients to use?
For women, I have size XS to 3X. The dresses are all flattering and bump-friendly, meaning they can be used for maternity photos, even thought most are not specifically made for maternity. Some of the dresses are sheer, so I also carry lace bralettes and slips. For babies and children, I have sizes starting at 3 months up to size 12/14. I also have some natural colored tops for men.
Where do you buy your dresses from?
This is probably what I get asked the most. My dresses are mainly purhcased online from stores such as Free People, Doen, Spell, and Baltic Born.
Can your wardrobe be used for outdoor sessions?
Definitly! It takes a little more planning to have the wardrobe for outdoor sessions, so I usually suggest a pre-session consultation to choose outfits prior to your session. Then I will bring them along, steamed and ready to go. I also have a pop-up changing tent so you can change in private.
Do I have to wear something from your studio wardrobe?
I think it’s funny that this gets asked, but you can definitely wear your own clothes for photos. This is just something I offer as a perk to my clients who want to use use it. If not borrowing from the studio wardrobe, I suggest wearing light or natural colors.
