I thought it would be fun to start a challenge! I want to challenge other photographers to put together a style board for spring photos and provide links. If any other photographers participate, I will add them to this post!
1. Put together a style board for a typical photoshoot you would have (I used canva)
2. Write a blog post
3. Add links and the photo of your style board
4. Let me know and I’ll add you to this post (for a limited time)!
I put together outfits for a family spring photoshoot.
This fake family has a mom, dad, baby girl an toddler boy. To make things even easier, all of these items can be purchased from the same place! I chose H&M simply because they have a lot of items that match my style – soft, sweet, and natural. I’ve included links below.
For photos, I love light colored neutrals, with textured fabrics, and natural elements. For example, you see the quilted dress and overalls (texture), natural elements (leather-like shoes, knit sweater, linen-like fabrics). Links are below!
My favorite way to build outfits for photos is to choose 1 main statement piece; in this case, the pink romper. Then I like to build the other outfits with solids that coordinate. I like to switch it up by adding textures and fabrics instead of more patterns.
You can add more flare and personality with fun earrings for mom, a cute bow or bonnet on baby girl, or hat on big brother/dad or mom.
Skip the shoes! Make sure your feet are clean and toenails are trimmed, and you don’t have to worry about wearing shoes to your session.

I hope you like this style board and that it helped you! Coordinating outfits for a session is one of my favorite parts!
If you don’t want to spend a bunch of money on a dress you’ll probably never wear again, don’t worry! I have a growing client closet with options for moms and babies. Ask me about my client closet!
If you have your heart set on a dress but don’t have a reason to keep it for yourself, no problem! I am currently buying back dresses from clients who book a session with me if they fit my criteria, terms and conditions apply. Ask me about my buy-back program. 🙂
