Seven Adorable Outfits for Baby’s First Pictures
Posted on June 21 2021
It’s no secret that we all love taking, and sharing, photos of our little ones, so much so that the phenomenon has its own catchphrase—sharenting. Watching our babies change, grow and develop through photography is one of the little joys of parenthood. Besides, it’s especially important to get as many photos as possible before they become toddlers and are too fidgety to sit for photos anyway!
Likewise, studies have shown that family photographs can actually help develop your child's positive self-image. Therefore, not only is it a joyous experience to take our babies’ first photos but it’s also an important one for their development.
In that case, you should make your baby as cute and cozy as possible!
First, Let’s Talk About Pima
With all of our pieces, you’ll be enchanted by our gentle-yet-strong 100% Pima Cotton fabric. Pima cotton is known to be “longer, stronger, finer and more uniform” than more common upland cotton. This silky-smooth fabric won’t irritate your baby’s skin as they sit (or lie down) for photos—because who knows how long it will take to get the perfect shot?
Furthermore, our Pima cotton keeps our clothing wrinkle-resistant and less likely to tear, pill, and fade. Think of Kissy Kissy clothing as a family keepsake made to be shared between siblings, cousins, and even generations.
Maybe the best part? Made to be machine-washable. Wash them on cold and dry them on low.
But enough about cotton, let’s get to the good stuff! Here are seven of the best and cutest outfits from our summer ‘21 new arrivals that we think will be just perfect for your baby’s first pictures:
Bath time can be one of the most fun parts of the day for baby—there’s nothing better than splashing around in the tub! Why not celebrate bath time though your photos with this smart hooded towel and mitt set. Featuring some adorable whales embroidered on the cuffs and, of course, made from the downy Pima cotton you know and love from Kissy Kissy.
Many of us have loyal furry friends at home and ones that our babies just love (even though it’s not always mutual—sorry Fido). And pictures of your baby with their loyal canine companions are always a hit so why not celebrate them with this adorable all-over Furr-Ever Print gown? With the convertible snaps, your baby can go from playtime to naptime in, well, a snap!
Pair it with the Furr-Ever Hat with lovable doggy ears!
Ahoy, sailor! Especially if you live near the ocean, a beachy photo shoot is always a good idea and this striped one-piece will make for a perfect outfit for sand and sun-themed setup.
While it’s probably too early for your baby to be cracking crab legs themselves, they can start dressing the part with the matching bib!
At some point, your child is going to want to be a pirate. We don’t know why that is but it’s true. Before you know it, they’ll be swashbuckling through the kitchen so, if you want to get them started early on the high seas of adventure and excitement, we’ve got the Pirates Ahoy Short Playsuit for your photoshoot. Just watch out for landlubbers or you’ll be headed to Davy Jones’s locker.
Not only is this gown one of our cuddliest, but we think it’s one of our most tasteful and stylish with delicate hand-detailed embroidery. We think it’d be the perfect outfit for a sleeping baby photoshoot and make for a photograph that will look timeless on your wall.
If you want a photo that’s both frilly and silly, check out the fantastical Unicorn Gardens Short Playsuit. Engage your baby’s imagination with this fantasy-themed playsuit with snap closure at the legs for easy changing. But, of course, the look isn’t complete without the Reversible Floppy Hat. Keep them stylish and sun-safe.
What we like about this two-piece set is that it includes the delightful jacket with coordinating pants so you can style it how you please by changing either the jacket or the pants with some of our other pant sets—a girl’s got to have options! This outfit can easily be used for a fun photoshoot, a day out on the town or even as pajamas when it’s time to get cozy.
