When you book a newborn session you have two options, one is that I come to your home and take your newborn pictures there. Or you can come to my in-home studio. Whichever option is most comfortable for the family!
Newborn sessions can take up to 2 – 2 and a half hours depending on how many feeding breaks are required. I will bring props and backdrops needed for the session. Majority of your infants pictures will be taken in his or her birthday suit but if there is a blanket, outfit or prop you have in mind to use please let me know because I want your pictures to be meaningful for you! If you, as a parent want to be in the picture please wear something neutral.
These sessions are done on location, I can pick somewhere or you can. The best time for maternity pictures are between 28-33 weeks pregnant. You want your bump noticeable but you want to have energy and be comfortable. Bring a couple clothing options, form fitting and neutral tops show off your bump best. The dad’s outfit should compliment the mothers.
Children and Family
Make sure that child is happy! Make it fun, bring snacks and toys! I don’t want the child to feel pressure about having to smile all day. Chocolate is always a great snack to bring.
Clothing should coordinate and try to avoid matching completely. These pictures are fun, so dress casual and don’t be afraid to dress children in bright and playful colors and to mix patterns and textures! Don’t hesitate to e-mail me pictures of your outfits!
These sessions should take place somewhere that is meaningful to the couple. Maybe where you got engaged or somewhere that interest you. Clothing should be a little dressier, think church or first date attire. Bring a couple clothing options if you just have no idea what to wear or don’t be afraid to e-mail your options and I can help you pick what to wear!
I would love to meet and have an initial consultation so that we can talk and see if we are good match, discuss details and most importantly get to know you. Your photographer should make you feel comfortable and set you at ease. After all they will be with you ALL DAY on the most importation day of your life. Be aware of your photographers style before you hire them.
