What should we wear!?: I think it is a personal choice! What about your favorite outfit? You can never go wrong with neutral colors, or a simple pattern. During newborn sessions, don't forget the focus is on the baby. Families look great when outfits compliment one another. The most important advice is to be dress comfortable and be yourself!
What if the weather doesn't cooperate?!: We live in the land of some crazy weather! I wish we could control what mother nature throws at us but that is just not the case. If the weather doesn't cooperate, it happens and it's totally cool! We will simply choose another mutually agreed upon time, location, or bring some umbrellas!
Do you offer Mini-Sessions?: Mini sessions are offered seasonally in fall and for Mother's day. Send me a note to inquire about scheduling and availability.
Newborn sessions are best when scheduled within the first three weeks. It is easiest to send me a note once your baby arrives and we can get a date on the calendar. Newborns photograph best in the comfort of their own home which does not have to be perfect and spotless! Another tip is to turn up the heat! Having a warm shooting space makes it much more comfortable for baby when s/he’s undressed. Try to avoid putting baby in anything that needs to be pulled over the head—a diaper and blanket is best so it’s easy to get undressed. Feedings and pacifiers are encouraged during the session to keep a happy baby!
Should I buy props?!: Let's focus on your sweet baby in a simple and timeless style. I love love love to use anything meaningful, special, hand-made, vintage, totally unique to your family! We can go through items before our session and determine what will photograph best.
When should I book a maternity session?: typically between 32-38 weeks is best.
