For the bright and airy look, we recommend parents wear light colors like white, ivory, light gray, champagne, soft blush or shades of lighter blue. Other colors like navy, dark grays, greens or any color that flatters your skin tone can also work great. Since you will most likely get some spit up on you, or possibly pee-pee, I might suggest saving the fancy clothing for a later shoot. Keep your recovering body comfortable in maxi dresses or other articles of clothing that help you feel as comfortable as possible. (tunics and leggins, easy dresses, wrap sweaters, etc)
In your home, I almost always use the baby nursery, the master bedroom if it gets a lot of light, and use the bed for a place to lay your baby. We can also use tufted ottomans, covered patios, living room furniture and more. And I can bring some baskets and a posing bean bag if desired.
