Thank you, Pantone… Purple is Back! | Portrait Inspiration

Dec 11, 2017

It’s official, folks. The Pantone color of the year is Ultra Violet! I very rarely get requests for purple in my studio so I’m pretty excited at the thought of possibly getting to use it more in 2018. While most Moms that choose purple for their session like to have it as the primary color, it also works well as a simple accent color. Lavender seems to be the top choice for baby sessions but I would love to see Moms start to embrace the beauty of dark purple!

“It’s also the most complex of all colors because it takes two shades that are seemingly diametrically opposed — blue and red — and brings them together to create something new.”
– Leatrice Eiseman

I had to dig deep into the archives to find some of these, but here are a few of my favorite images using the color purple. 🙂

While I don’t get very many requests for purple for my newborn & baby session, the lavender backdrop is quite a popular choice for pet Moms!

“All the other colors are just colors, but purple seems to have a soul. Purple is not just a noun and an adjective but also a verb – when you look at it, it’s looking back at you.”
– Uniek Swain


number of comments:


My studio is typically one of the very first places that parents bring their newborn. I fully understand the gravity of that decision and I want you to know that you’re bringing your little one to a safe space that has been designed (and cleaned!) with you in mind. I am fully stocked with a variety of backdrops, swaddles, props and decor to help personalize your baby’s first portrait session. 

They're only this little
