What to Wear

One of the most common questions we get at Spoiled Rotten Photography is “What should my child wear for their portrait session?”  See below for some helpful suggestions based on the current set we are showcasing.  We’ve also included recommendations for our popular Mini sessions.

Clothing Suggestions for our Spring 2023 Mon Ami Set

Pick an outfit to complement your child’s personality!  We love pastel tones such as mint, sage, blue, pinks, whites, or khakis. If you’d like to go more elegant, gold and sparkles look amazing on the Mon Ami set too! 

Add a bow tie or some suspenders to make any outfit stand out. Oh…and don’t forget unique jewelry pieces too.  These added touches will help show off your child’s individual flair!

Our photographers love to work with the personal items you send with your child… a lovie, blankies, fresh flowers, an heirloom toy, etc. When you register your child for mini-sessions, make sure you leave a note about the item you plan to send with your child so we make sure it gets included in a few portraits.

Check out the Mon Ami curated clothing guide and the Mon Ami Gallery for some outfit inspiration.  





Choose Solids or Small Prints

Choose SOLIDS or SMALL PRINTS.  The look of campus candids will vary greatly depending on your school’s facilities.  The best bet is to send your child in clothes you love!  

Avoid bold patterns, stripes, large logos, or writing

Avoid bold patterns, stripes, large logos, or writing.   We want the portrait to be all about the amazing subject!  Crazy clothes with large patterns brings your attention to the clothes, not their beautiful faces!  

Add layers & accessories

Add layers & accessories (hats, jackets, scarfs, jewelry).  This is a great way to add variety to your images and gives your portrait depth and dimension.
