Do we need to bring props?

My photography style doesn't incorporate many props. Quilts and a few chairs every now and then is about as far as that goes. If you have any special items to your family, we are more than happy to incorporate them.

For newborn portraits, we like to keep it simple and really focus on those sweet babies. Swaddle blankets, little outfits ( sleepers, gowns, headbands, hats, etc) are welcome. Items that are special to your family can also be incorporated as well!

do we need to find a location?

We have locations that we love photographing at but we are always open to locations that are special to our clients.

Newborn sessions are done in-home.

How can we prepare our kids for our session?

In my opinion, there isn't much preparing you can do other than letting them know they will meet someone knew and that they will be taking their pictures. Let them know that we will have a great time together and that we will become friends before the night is over.

I make it a point to introduce myself to the little ones and really get down on their level to make them feel comfortable. I know that little ones can be really unpredictable and that having patience with them is key. No bribery needed.

What should we wear?

When planning your session, selecting your outfits can be hard! What I like to recommend is to stick with neutral colors or earth tones and simple patterns such as dainty florals. Avoid everyone matching exactly and instead try to coordinate colors. Look on Pinterest for color pallets that pair well together or pull from the colors in your home.
Accessories and layers photograph really well and, almost always, the dressier the better. Once you book your session you will have access to our style guide where we give more advice and even share places to shop!
