I promise you will love your maternity photographs! They are tastefully done and are very flattering to the expectant mom of all shapes and sizes.You can wear as much or as little clothing as you’d like. I’ll make your session very comfortable and fun. I have beautiful drapes and wraps for you to use, and feel free to bring some of your own maternity clothes. The best time for maternity photographs is around 35 weeks pregnant, depending on your individual shape and size. Please do not bring any children to your maternity session, unless you specifically want them in the pictures. There is no extra charge to have your husband, partner, or child in some pictures with you. Jean pants and solid colored shirts work great for husbands or partners (white & black). I DO NOT recommend any kind of spray-on or lotion tanning before a maternity session.

The very best time to photograph a newborn is during their first 3 weeks of life (the earlier the better!) Call me as soon as your little one arrives to schedule your session. We can still get great photos with an “older” newborn, just prepare to be patient and do fewer poses and setups.
Newborns photograph best when naked. I have lots of props, blankets, and accessories so don’t worry about bringing much for the baby unless you have something special. Also, if Mom and Dad want to be in any pictures, please bring a long-sleeved, solid, neutral colored or black shirt. Please note: This session does not include family pictures with additional children.
Plan on feeding your baby before and possibly several times during the session. If bottle feeding, don’t forget lots of formula. And, if breastfeeding, a bottle with pumped milk can be very helpful and time saving! Pacifiers can also be VERY helpful during a session, so please bring one if possible. Also, when I photograph newborns, the studio is kept very warm, so dress accordingly.

Children and Babies
Between 7 to 9 months old is the perfect age for your baby’s second photo session! Older babies photograph best when they can sit up well on their own, but not yet crawling or walking. I often tell parents that the most challenging session is with a child who is mobile, but not yet bribable! Don’t let that scare you away from a session at the milestone age of one though, (just wear loose clothing and be prepared for a workout)!
For babies and children, bring one or two outfit changes, but avoid solid white, busy patterns, and logos. I also have many cute hats, bows, petti-coats, tutus, and other accessories available at the studio. Please do not bring children to the session who are not scheduled to be photographed. If your child is sick, please call to reschedule.
