I photograph newborns in their natural state and pay very close attention to respectful poses. I provide all the props for the sessions but if you have a special quilt, hat, booties, or bloomers, please feel free to bring them to the session and I will incorporate them in to a photo (if the baby is willing). Please try to relax and enjoy the session! Parents who are flexible with feedings tend to have much quicker sessions. If you are trying to keep your newborn on a schedule, please try to be flexible on picture day. Often times, it just takes a little bit to make the baby go back to sleep and makes for much smoother sessions. Please make sure you bring more than enough milk, just in case! I recommend for parents to dress in layers. It can get a little warm in the studio because I keep a small heater on to keep the babies comfortable.
During the Fall, I often book sessions back to back. Please be respectful of my time and others. Try to arrive a few minutes early so your children can become aquainted with the area before we start the session! Plan ahead and coordinate your outfits. This does not always mean everything must match. Coordination is key! Colors that compliment each other photograph really well.
If you have a daughter, I have multiple tutus and lace petitrompers you are more than welcome to use. Please message me for more information regarding size and color. If you have a son, I have some seersucker and madras print pants with coordinating driver/golf hats that you are welcome to use. Boys photograph really well in pants, no shirt and a hat! Again, please message me for information about sizing!
Smash Cake Sessions:
You will provide and bring the cake! I have a wonderful cake lady, Honey Hush Cakery, that I recommend 100%. I also recommend a matching diaper cover and hat (if your little one will wear a hat)! Etsy.com has many different vendors and options! Get creative or hand it over to a vendor on Etsy.com! I have a few different banners to use as part of the backdrop but feel free to have one made to match your cake. If you choose to do this, message me for sizes. If you'd like to know what my banner colors are, please also message me and I can give you more specifics. The banners add a precious birthday touch to their very special first birthday!
