Mebie Baby Styled Shoot

I can’t get enough of these photos! It was too hard to decide which pictures to post so I just selected a lot more than my usual 10 or so. I loved this shoot! Styled shoots are always so much fun. I take pictures for this brand often, but it’s rare that I do a Mebie Baby styled shoot with Meraki Floral Co. This one just worked. Everything came together beautifully and naturally. The colors, textures, models, and product all seemed to just make sense and coordinate so well. See for yourself!

Why Mebie Baby Styled Shoot Worked

Firstly, styled shoots should loosely themed. Sometimes people take a single theme too far and it looks staged. The Mebie Baby styled shoot was loosely themed to match the style of the clothes. For example, the woven baskets are all slightly different. Each flower arrangement has different colors and textures.

Contrast is also really important. When there’s so much going on in one photo, it’s important to set the clothes a part.  Here’s few examples of the way I made clothes pop using color in this shoot.

Contrasting the background colors with the clothes. If the background was neutral, I would use a model dressed in brighter colors.

Using different skin tones is so important and beautiful. With models who have darker skin, sometimes it’s fun to dress them in lighter clothes. And the models with lighter skin could be placed against a darker background. I always think it’s great to use models of all different skin tones in the same pictures.

If you look, I usually only focus on two things out of the three: Pattern, Color and Texture. Layers of texture and color look great but it can become too busy if you also add patterns. I don’t really think about it when I shoot, because you’ll know when it gets a little busy and you need to change things up.

Make sure the clothes match the theme or the theme matches the clothes. If you get too many eras going at one time, the styled shoots won’t make as much sense and it looks less natural to people.
