Session Tips

Newborn/ Infant

A picture of a newborn sleepy baby is wonderful, but you have to wonder where the term sleeps like a baby comes from. Not many new babies sleep well. 

Extra time will most likely be needed to capture those sweet moments. If you would like baby in the buff please remember that diapers tend to leave harsh red marks and its a good idea to leave the diaper a little looser before arriving since these marks do not fade quickly. Your baby should be well fed and ready to hopefully go to sleep when arriving. 

If your newborn does not want to sleep bright eyes are always nice too. 

Newborn portraits are best taken with in the first 2 weeks. You don't always know when your baby will arrive so give me a call as soon as you can so we can set something up quickly for you.   

 

Children

I know my kids get very cranky if they are tired or hungry so please make sure your children are well fed and rested before a session. 

Even then sometimes kids just don't like to be still for pictures. If your child still naps please let me know and we can try to work around the nap time. 

I will do everything I can to get your child to warm up to me but it may help if your bring a special favorite toy that will help get their attention. 

Dress them in comfortable clothing. Kids that are not comfy will not usually act natural which is what we are trying to get on camera!

Props

All newborn sessions include use of all my props, hats and wraps.  Any other props must be supplied.  

Clothing 

Think about what type of portrait you want and bring in your favorite outfits that capture that look. 

If you are taking full length photos, don't forget shoes and socks. Long sleeve solids or very subtle prints are usually the most flattering in portraits. 

Remember, if you are self-conscious about your arms do not wear sleeveless tops.

Traditional styles and solid dark colours will stand the test of time and keep your portrait looking fresh for years to come. 

Busy patterns and bright/loud colors can be very distracting in your portraits, avoid large and bold patterns that might tend to draw attention away from your face.In a group or family portrait, proper clothing coordination is critical. Do not mix casual and formal attire and choose clothing in the same colour scheme. For example half the group in pastels and the other half in earth tones may not look the best. It is best if everyone matches so one person does not stand out.

The key to a good portrait? Keep it simple! Think about what type of portrait you want and bring the necessary outfits and props to help it happen.
