We chatted on the phone for your consultation, and you decided to book a session.  Yay!!  You’re super excited for your session.  But, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR??  This is one of the top concerns I hear from my clients during our consultation call!  Well, I have great news for you–I have taken the stress of choosing session outfits out of the equation!

The Signature session experience at Megan Dustin Photography addresses this common stressor. The clothing that you wear during a professional photography session can completely make (or break) the final product of your images.  That’s a lot of pressure for you.  It can take a ton of time to locate the perfect wardrobe pieces for each member of your family, trying to coordinate everyone perfectly.  And I know that you don’t have the time to research, and then buy/return clothing pieces to find the perfect combination.  So, I’ve taken care of that part of the puzzle for you!

What is a Client Wardrobe?

When you book your session with me, you get access to the Client Wardrobe!  At Megan Dustin Photography, you are invited into my Whitehouse Station, New Jersey photography studio for a complimentary styling appointment prior to your session.  In the studio, I have carefully curated an entire client wardrobe for moms, babies, and children up to size 5.  What does that mean?? I have purchased clothing pieces that photograph beautifully in a variety of sizes, and they are available for my clients to use during sessions.  Why should you buy wardrobe pieces that you will likely only wear once for your photo session?  Don’t do it…because I have them here available for you to use!  Let’s take a peek at just a few of the client closet options!

Wardrobe Pieces for Moms

Before I purchase pieces for the client wardrobe, they have to meet certain criteria in order to stay consistent with my brand.  (You’re here on my website, so you’ve seen my work.  You can probably guess the criteria I require!)

– clean, soft colors (whites, grays, creams, pastels)

-flexible sizing (either stretchy material) or a cinched waist

-bump-friendly or postpartum friendly is a big PLUS!

-flattering material that flows and photographs well

Dresses for mamas in the client closet fit a wide range of sizes from size zero (XS) – size 16+ (XXL).  If you fall in love with a dress that isn’t exactly your size, we can work a little magic by pinning or clamping the back of your dress.

Wardrobe Pieces for Newborns

For your newborn session, I have the most beautiful wraps, posing blankets, and and newborn props.  I choose really soft materials with interesting textures to create visual interest to enhance your photos, but keep your baby as the focus.  We can add an adorable headband or bonnet to complete the look…I have everything here in the studio, so you don’t have to purchase anything extra for your session!

Wardrobe Pieces for Milestone Sessions

Milestone sessions are perfect for capturing all off our favorite stages…your baby sitting, first birthday, losing a first tooth,….the possibilities are endless.  And the client wardrobe is included for these sessions too!  I have clothing options for newborns-size 5 and am constantly updating the kids’ wardrobe in the studio.  All of the adorable rompers, dresses, and bloomers are here to pull together the perfect images of your babe!

Have a wardrobe piece at home that you’d rather wear instead??  No problem!  Once we have your family’s outfits chosen for your session, I will be able to finish planning for your session.  If you’re having an outdoor session, we will choose a final location.  If you’re having a studio session, we will chat about your vision for your session, and I will plan colors and setups to use in the studio based on that.  Your wardrobe will pull together all of these elements to create a timeless, cohesive look in all of your photographs.
