I was going through my baby’s newborn photos and came across this pic. He looks so tiny and precious. He was 6 days old in this photo and now he is 7 months old. How time flies…

Planning for your Session (NEWBORN, FAMILY & MATERNITY SESSION)

During our session you can expect a relaxed and fun atmosphere. I want you to feel at ease and enjoy yourself during our time together. I like to get to know my clients and capture their true personalities. With families and children you can expect both posed shots and candids.

Please expect to take breaks if infants and small children are involved. Infants often need breaks to nurse or feed and just get some love from mom and dad. Toddlers sometimes have meltdowns and don’t want to cooperate. That is okay! This is expected with children of this age and this is the norm with sessions with small children. I know, I have two myself!:)

With small children it is a good idea to bring their favorite snack and/or toy(s). Sometimes the best shots are of your child being natural and playing with mom, dad or siblings. They also come in handy if your toddler has a meltdown and just needs a break to play and let the mood pass.

With newborns you might want to have a change of clothing as it is almost impossible to avoid accidents such as spit up or getting wet with a naked baby. So, don’t worry, this too is expected and I will have several blankets on hand for infant sessions to swap in/out. Make sure to bring the wet wipes and diapers:-). Newborn sessions typically last three hours, so please plan accordingly. Parents, I suggest dressing in layers if it is a cool day so you can peel away the layers if you get warm (trust me, you will!:-)). If parents and/or siblings would like to participate in the newborn session, we will get those photos taken care of first, so please let me know if you plan on participating.

Here are a few suggestions for what to wear/bring for your session…

Newborns*
(I have a prop selection for my newborn clients, so there is no need to bring anything for your baby unless you have special items you would like photographed with your baby.)
-nude is best for baby
-For mom, a simple black or white tank, short-sleeved shirt or tube top is perfect. Simple is best, avoid patterns.
-For dad, a black or white t-shirt. For those dads that are comfortable bearing their chest please do because these can make for some of the most precious images with father and child.
*A detailed list of preparations will be sent once baby arrives.

One Year & Cake Smash
-2 outfit changes including classic ensembles and some with bright/fun colors
-personalized banners (Pls. be sure to bring your own if you have a birthday theme in mind.
-large cupcake or small birthday cake for your child to dig into
-balloon bouquet
-tutus or pettiskirts for girls
-personalized onesies or diaper covers for cake smash
-towels and wipes
-accessories, such as headbands, jewelry and hats

Families and Children
-accessories, such as headbands, scarves, jewelry, jackets and hats can really add to your look
-avoid all white or all black color combos
-Avoid matching outifts, but rather try to find outfits that compliment each other
-Avoid clothing with logos and busy patterns that will distract
-Color! Splashes of color really make your photos pop!
-denim
-dress up shirts
-cowboy boots
-striped or patterned stockings/tights
-fun, flirty dress
-tutus
-props – if you have fun props, such as antique family items or items with special meaning you’d like included, please feel free to bring them

Maternity
-denim jeans (maternity and an old pair that you can button down or unzip for photos)
-basic tank tops that really show off your bump
-flirty sundresses (empire waist really helps show off your bump)
-tube top and flowy skirt
-sonogram photos(s)
-special items you would like to be photographed with
-just remember simple goes a long way
