During our session you can expect a relaxed and fun atmosphere. I want you to feel at ease and enjoy yourself during our time together. I like to get to know my clients and capture their true personalities. With families and children you can expect both posed shots and candids.
Please expect to take breaks if infants and small children are involved. Infants often need breaks to nurse or feed and just get some love from mom and dad. Toddlers sometimes have meltdowns and don’t want to cooperate. That is okay! This is expected with children of this age and this is the norm with sessions with small children. I know, I have one myself!
With small children it is a good idea to bring their favorite snack and/or toy(s) if we’re meeting at an outdoor location. Sometimes the best shots are of your child being natural and playing with mom, dad or siblings. They also come in handy if your toddler has a meltdown and just needs a break to play and let the mood pass.
Here are a few suggestions for what to wear/bring for your session…
(I will also have my collection of fun hats, headbands, tutus and newborn props on hand)
-denim jeans (maternity jeans or an old pair that you can button down or unzip for photos)
-basic tank top
-flirty sun dress
-white button down blouse
-bathing suit top and fun skirt (if the weather is warm)
-just remember, simple goes a long way
-blocks that spell baby’s name
-special items you would like to be photographed with
Families and Children
-accessories, such as headbands, scarves, jewelry, jackets and hats can really add to your look
-avoid all white or all black color combos
-Avoid matching outifts, but rather try to find outfits that compliment each other
-Avoid clothing with logos and busy patterns that will distract
-Color! Splashes of color really make your photos pop!
-dress up shirts
-rain boots (we do live in Seattle)
-striped or patterned stockings/tights
-fun, flirty dress
-props – if you have fun props, such as antique family items or items with special meaning you’d like included, please feel free to bring them
