There is nothing better than a cute baby... they get me every time! These are fleeting moments... they won't last forever. Baby portraits with sweet smiles, roly-poly arms and legs, chubby cheeks, full belly laughs and a zest for life capture the beginnings of your child's dynamic personality. Long after your baby fits in your arms, you will have heirloom quality portraits, albums and wall art to remember your most precious moments. Capture them. Preserve this moment in time. Share them.
A well fed baby is a happy baby!
Come prepared! Bring plenty of bottles, snacks, diapers, and patience. ;o) Feeding the baby is a common occurrence during the session. I want the baby to be happy and fully satisfied. I’ll be more than happy to take breaks, as needed, to help him/her re-fuel. It’s tough work being a model!
If you want naked baby shots, loosen your baby’s diaper and clothing at least 30 minutes before the session. Socks, hats, diapers and anything with elastic can leave marks on babies skin. This gives those little imprint marks time to disappear. (if your baby does naked shots we will pose them so that “private bits” are not on display.)
WHAT TO BRING
Hats & cute clothes!
Please bring cute clothes, hats, headbands, diaper covers and sentimental blankets or favorite toys. I will try our best to photograph your baby with your favorite items.
*If you would like shots in a diaper, it’s a good idea to have either a cloth diaper, diaper cover in a solid color, bloomers, or something to put over the diaper. Disposable diapers are not too pretty. So, cover them up!
Be prepared to sing your baby's favorite song, and don't forget their favorite squeaky toy or rattle!
I have loads of baby wraps in a wide range of colors.
During the session I’ll do my best to capture baby's darling personality. When a baby is sitting up, but not yet 'on the go' is one of the perfect times to take photos. At this age, they are so happy with all of their accomplishments.
I have a collection of bowls, baskets, blankets, and wraps. You are welcome to bring your own props. Please bring items with texture and color to help make your images unique.
If you have family heirlooms, toys, hats, props, etc. that you would like me to use in your session, please shoot me an email, so I can see what you are considering using. I may not get the chance to use all of the items, but I’ll look through them with you to determine what will work best.
WHO CAN COME?
I encourage you to bring only adults to Baby Sessions. Please note, Baby Sessions take a lot of time and patience, therefore we suggest that you schedule an additional session at a later date to photograph your baby with their brothers and sisters.
It is always helpful to bring one additional adult to a session.
Patience is key!
Baby Sessions are fun! We need to go with the flow and take the baby's lead... what makes the baby happy, makes the best photos.
Your baby may be in the buff for some of this shoot. Please don’t panic if your baby decides to use our blankets (or us) as his/her own personal potty. Everything is washable.
This is natural and I expect it! Please don’t feel embarrassed or worry if this happens.
I wash all of our baby props and blankets between each session.
After your session we will set up a Reveal appointment for you to come in and look at your fabulous photos.
