If the baby gets fussy or alert, don’t worry. Sometimes the best pictures are ones when baby isn’t necessarily doing what we want.
If younger sibling are attending please be sure to bring snacks for them with this being said please do not bring anything that might stain their clothing or their face.
For nursing Moms, be sure they’re careful with what they eat for about a day leading up to the session. Any woman who has nursed a baby knows that any sort of spicy foods can make the baby uncomfortable or upset their tummy. And an upset tummy will always mean lots of tears and little sleep! So tell them to avoid spicy foods, or any foods the baby may have allergies to, at all costs!
I also recommend parents trying to keep their baby awake in the couple hours leading up to the session. If the baby has slept all morning and then arrives to my studio, they just might be ready for a long awake period, which makes the job of getting them sleepy all that much harder. So, some tips to give parents are to play with baby, talk with baby, maybe even give the baby a bath before the session – whatever it takes to keep them alert for an hour or two. Then, when they arrive in my studio, they’ll be ready for a long nap
Please feed and burp the baby right before the session to ensure baby is happy and sleepy. We may ask you to nurse (or feed) the baby during our session if they start to get cranky.
For the parents, the studio will be very hot, I always suggest they dress lightly.
Here’s a really important one - do not forget the pacifier!! If the baby takes a pacifier, you can be sure they will want it during the session!
When will I receive my images from the session?
The images will be delivered on an online gallery within 2 weeks. Parents will receive sneak peeks with 72 hours of the session.
