As a Mom of two and Houston TX photographer, I know the struggle of finding something to wear for family portrait sessions. And while it’s been a few years since our maternity and newborn sessions with our boys, I distinctly remember struggling then too.
See, I know finding something to wear can be a major pain point for many Moms. Ordering outfits online only to have to return them for various reasons- it can be time consuming and stressful. I’ve heard from so many Moms that they have actually postponed sessions because finding something they feel beautiful and confident in for a portrait session caused so much stress.
That absolutely breaks my heart, and is the exact reason the Lifetime of Clicks Photography Client Wardrobe exists!
As your full service Houston TX photographer, my goal with each session is to ensure the session planning process is enjoyable for you. That is why both access to the Client Wardrobe and professional hair and makeup for Mom is included with each and every session.
I often get a lot of questions about this service, so here’s everything you need to know!
What is the Client Wardrobe?
Over the years I have carefully curated a selection of beautiful dresses for Mom, children’s clothing, and even options for Dad for the Client Wardrobe. Each and every one of them photograph beautifully.
Dresses for Mom have been selected in a variety of sizes and styles, keeping in mind requests like sleeves to cover arms and flowy silhouettes that compliment baby bumps and postpartum bodies.
When you come in for your styling appointment, it’s a little like shopping in a boutique with an unlimited budget! Sounds fun, right?! That’s because it is! I love these appointments because it gives Mom a chance to try on dresses and find the one that makes her feel beautiful.
Once Mom has chosen a dress, we work on coordinating outfits for everyone else in the family. I’ll make suggestions based on the location of your session, what you’ve described as your style and wardrobe must-haves!
Why offer the Client Wardrobe?
Simply put- my hope is that by alleviating the burden of a major pain point in the session planning process, that more Moms will choose to be in the portrait with their children.
I often equate the portrait session to a puzzle. There are so many pieces to your client experience that all come together so beautifully in the end, but can often be challenging to do by yourself while managing school schedules, sports, and all the other things on your to do list.
These days with your littles are fleeting. The last thing I want you to do is miss out on documenting important milestones with your babies! Your children deserve to have tangible memories of your love that can be passed down through generations.
Your investment in this session should be worthwhile. When you look at your final gallery, I want you to be confident that your images will look stunning on any wall in your home and confident that the classic style won’t look outdated in years to come.
And while shopping for kids can be fun, during a pandemic its been even more challenging! Finding the right size, style, and colors that speak to your family is part of what makes my job as a full service photographer rewarding.
What sizes for Mom do you offer?
I have found that helping Mom choose something she looks and more importantly, feels beautiful in has been a total game changer in the outcome of your session.
That is why I offer a range of sizes from petite to plus size and everything in between. The wardrobe is always growing, so if I see there is a need for a new style or size I am more than happy to add it to the Client Wardrobe.
Do you have options for kids and my husband, too?
Yes! I offer a small selection for Dads and a wide range for toddlers, boys and girls.
Most Dads prefer to wear their own clothing, but I find its helpful to have options here during your styling appointment to show you what goes together and what to look for if your husband prefers to purchase his own!
