Planning for your Session
Here are a few suggestions for what to wear/bring for your session…
(I have an extensive prop selection for my newborn clients, so there is no need to bring anything for your baby unless you have special items you would like photographed with your baby.)
-nude is best for baby
-For mom, a simple black or white tank, short-sleeved shirt or tube top is perfect. Simple is best, avoid patterns.
-For dad, a black or white t-shirt. For those dads that are comfortable bearing their chest please do because these can make for some of the most precious images with father and baby.
One Year & Cake Smash
(I have an extensive selection prop selection for 1 year old clients)
-3-4 outfit changes including classic ensembles and some with bright/fun colors

-tutus or pettiskirts for girls
-personalized onesies or diaper covers for cake smash
-towels and wipes

Families and Children
-accessories, such as headbands, scarves, jewelry, jackets and hats can really add to your look
