Come with your baby well fed and sleepy. This will enable us to keep them happy during the session; though we are prepared to take breaks for needed diaper changes or feedings, whatever the little client needs – we accommodate! If you have something you would like to tie into your session (a hobby/talent/occupation of Mom or Dad’s), please inform me so that we can plan accordingly! I love to bring a little piece of YOU to your newborns session.
Ladies & Gentlemen
wear extra makeup for the camera • choose colors to complement your hair and skin tones • leave the watches and outrageous socks at home • hats, scarves, hairpieces, parasols, jewelry, boots and belts are fabulous! :) Wear solid colors. Nothing detracts from your face more than clothes covered in busy patterns and prints.
bubbles, balloons, lollipops, and flowers entertain the little ones and look great on camera • outfits with logos or writing steal the show away from your child; not recommended! • bring out the inner ballerina, astronaut, princess, fireman, pilot, fairy, train conductor: costumes and period outfits are fun, fun, fun! • bare feet are never out of style • the golden rule: a tired child is a behaved child
The camera shows the truth. If a client has skin problems such as peeling from a sun burn, or incomplete tan coverage for the clothing they’re planning to wear, I suggest they reschedule. ;)
