We are going to have so much fun at your portrait session. I have a few tips and tricks for you to ensure everything goes smoothly and that we have an amazing time!

1. Spray tan need to done at least 48 hours prior to your session.

2. If you have special baby items (shoes, blankets, toys, ultrasound photos, name blocks, etc.) feel free to bring those to the session. They make great additions to your photos.

3. Your hands will likely be a prominent feature in many of your images. Treating yourself to a manicure before your session may be a nice touch. Also, feel free to wear a special bracelet or piece of jewelry to add interest to your photos.

4. If your partner and/or other children will be participating in the session, they should wear clothing that coordinates with yours. When other children are involved, I usually try to do the family shots first and then have your partner take the children out for a walk while we finish the session. Feel free to bring toys and snacks to keep them occupied as well.

5. Please avoid arriving in clothing that will leave marks on your skin such as elastic-waist pants, tight-fitting underwear and socks.

6. Plan your entire day around the shoot. I suggest you make your portrait session the star of your day. What you eat and where you go and what you have planned for that day will ultimately affect your photo shoot. I recommend nutritious food, non-stressful activities and a relatively open day with minimal obligations.

Your maternity sessions will take about 60 to 90 minutes long. (Please be sure to arrive 10 to 15 minutes prior to your appointment time. Any delays will shorten the session.) If we are doing your session at a park, remember bring comfortable shoes and water as we will do a little bit of walking around the area. Sessions are always laid back and fun. I will take my time to make sure we capture some amazing shots of you and your growing belly :) 

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
