During the session expect a relaxed and fun atmosphere, my goal is simply to capture images that reflect the personalities of those being photographed!
I do not have a specified time limit, although about one hour seems to be the norm for a family session. Newborn sessions take around three hours. Attire is left to individual preference and I am more than happy to accommodate clothing changes in a full session. In the process of booking, we can discuss individual expectations and tailor the session accordingly.
A maternity session is typically done around 30-36 weeks but there is no set time. They can take place indoors or outside, and can include husbands and siblings. Things to bring along could be sonogram photos, baby shoes, block letters, or any other special item to be in the photograph. Each session is unique and up to the individual, but remember simple is often better. I do offer a maternity mini session when booking a newborn session.
Photographing newborns is best around or before 10 days new. At this age they sleep very sound and aren't easily awakened when changing positions. I have a studio set aside in my home that I prefer to use. This is a comfortable environment for baby, which means we may be hot but the little one will sleep! Newborn photos turn out best if taken in the nude. I have lots of accessories available, wraps, tiebacks, and hats. For mothers, fathers, and/or siblings taking pictures with the newborn, solid white and/or black shirts and tank tops are perfect.
For children, high school seniors, and families, I have several locations outdoors to choose from. Early morning and late afternoon / early evening times have the best natural lighting. For high school senior pictures, I will target at least two outdoor locations and accommodate a clothing change or two.
