Prep for your session!
How to prepare for a newborn session
Congratulations on your newly expected arrival! I'm honored that you chose me to document this big milestone. A few tips to help your newborn session run smoothly!
- Keep baby awake for 1-2 hours pre-session, this helps us get those sweet sleepy photo's and poses.
- Feed right before I get there if it's an in-home or plan on feeding at the beginning of a studio session. I allow plenty of time for feedings.
- If your session is in-home, open all blinds or window treatments to allow for good light and turn OFF all overhead lights, even if it seems dark.
How to prepare for a mini session.
Mini sessions are great bang for the buck, and being prepared is crucial for maximizing our time together! A few simple steps will set you up for success!
- Be ready for physical contact. Whether physical touch is at the top or bottom of your 5 love languages list, its what makes connection in your end result. At all times during the session, make some sort of physical contact. Playing with hair, scratching backs, linking arms, etc. I will help guide you on this but keep it in mind.

How to prepare for a Legacy Session.
- Open all blinds/window treatments and shut off overhead lighting.
- We have a lot of time together, so don't feel the need to rush things or be doing something at every minute. Take your time and feel free to relax during our time together!
- Make sure everyone is well fed either before or during! Moods get grumpy when hunger is in the air.

-Make sure everyone is well fed as beach sessions take some energy.
- Overall, just have fun with your family. Be silly, be wierd, make fart jokes, live big. The best sessions I have are from families who just let loose a little and make their kids laugh.
