Prepare for Your Visit

So, you’re thinking about scheduling a photo session, but aren’t exactly sure how it all works. Well, relax. Soon, you’ll discover that the experience can be as memorable as the photographs that result from it.

 

Timing Is Everything

  • Schedule your portrait session during your child's upbeat time of day, after naps and feedings, so that he can enjoy the experience.
  • Arrive 10-15 minutes before your session. Use this time to relax and enjoy our cool studio before the camera starts clicking.

Make It Personal

  • Bring along necessary items to help keep your child happy and clean, including diapers, wipes, snacks, favorite toys and blankets. Bring along some personal props - costumes, hats, or toys that showcase your child's personality.

Mix Up The Wardrobe

  • When picking out your child's wardrobe, think bold and bright, something simple, no busy stripes or patterns. For family portraits, it's best to dress everyone in the same style, color or mood.
  • Bring a variety of outfits with you. Casual, formal, or something to reflect your child's personality. It will help us to capture your child's true self. Since some portraits may show the child from head to toe, make sure your children wear matching shoes and socks.

It's All Relative

  • Include other people in portraits with your baby or child. Holding hands with mom and dad. Big sister kissing her new baby brother on the nose. You will cherish these images for years to come. And don't forget your pets. They're part of the family too.

Be Open-Minded

  • Sometimes a frown, a wail or even a sleeping baby can make a great portrait. Don't shy away from capturing a variety of expressions that capture your baby's personality.
