Dare to prepare

What to expect at your session:

Your photo session is unique to you. For kids, I encourage you to have several outfit choices for me to choose from. I usually prefer solid fabric choices, something light colored, and something dark colored. Always have your favorite outfits on hand as well, you never know what I might pick that will photograph well. Fun hats, blankets, and costumes are more than welcome to make your photo session personal. Most of the time children are photographed barefoot. If there is more than one person to be photographed, clothes should coordinate in color and style. Your child should be well rested and fed before your session. Most children will perform their best in the mornings. Your session will last anywhere from 30 min. – 3 hrs. Please plan accordingly.

Newborns are the exception – if possible keep them awake before your session time, so when I arrive baby can eat and fall asleep. Newborns are photographed bare.

For adults and families:

Clothes should color coordinate. Medium or dark colored plain (no bold patterns) fabric is best. Long sleeves are preferable and they are slimming. Make-up and hair should be styled as usual. If you wear glasses, borrow some frames without lenses to avoid glare.

My baby scratched her face yesterday, should I reschedule?

Not to worry. Blemishes and scratches or noticeable temporary imperfections will be retouched from your final print order at no additional charge. Swollen lumps or skin discoloration like a black eye should be rescheduled.
