Information About Your Session

Here are some specific suggestions for what to bring or wear to your session.

Maternity Session

  • You can plan for a few outfit changes, but try to coordinate them together.
  • If you’ve chosen my “wooded river” location and plan on getting into the water for a few shots (highly recommended), don’t forget sandals and a towel!
  • The best outfits for maternity photos are those that really show off your bump. Choose something long and flowing, but also choose one that hugs your belly.
  • For inspiration, please visit my Pinterest boards here and here.

Newborn Sessions

  • I have it all for these sessions: wraps, bows, blankets, baskets, and other accessoriesYou will also fill out a session questionnaire so I know exactly which props, poses, or colors you’re looking for.
  • For parents and siblings, neutrals are best. White, tan, gray, cream and navy all photograph beautifully and will not take attention away from your baby.
  • For inspiration, please visit my Pinterest boards here and here.
  • If young siblings are going to be included in the session, I suggest bringing a second car so Dad can take them out after the session, should that be necessary. Newborn sessions can last 2-2.5 hours. For the littles, this can make for a long, boring process and at times they can start to feel antsy.
