I love photographing babies!
I like to touch base prior to our session in order to plan which props and poses we can do.
Babies under 4.5 months are generally to young for any sitting photos, but do great with tummy time photos.
Babies over 8 months are starting to get mobile, and are usually too big for the “cheerios shot”
Babies over 1.5 year seem to do best outside, because they want to move!
What to dress your Child in
I like to take a lot of bare bum shots, so the best outfit is usally their birthday suit. With that being said, I like to err on the side of modesty and safety for these precious little ones, and all photos including any genitalia are destroyed.
Bring a short sleeve white onesie, no print or graphic on it.
Jeans, or denim overalls or plaid shorts. Solid color or white tops for boys.
Solid color dresses, if you have a white dress, please bring it!!! Jean jackets, solid color tops, white tops and jeans.
Bring along any props you would like to include.
Ideas include: childs favorite toys, dad ties, apples, any thing that you think woud be cute and fun, usually is!
Let me know ahead of time, if their are certain shots or props of mine you would like included.IE) Cheerios shot, cabbage shot, rubber duckies, birds nest, apple basket, wash basin, clothesline…This allows me to come up with a set plan ahead of time,Weather permitting we can include outside shots, with my outdoor props ( chairs etc)I am happy to include seasonally relevent photos, (Ie) santa hats, pumpkins, angelwings. Just let me know what you would like to do and I will work on accomodating it!
And last but not least, if your baby messes on anything, DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT!!!I expect it! everything is washable or disposable! Thats just what babies do!!!!
