Session Info

Here are a few suggestions for what to wear/bring for your session…
Also What to expect.


Newborn sessions take up to 4 hours. Most of that time is feedings and getting them to a nice deep sleep.
I keep my studio very warm. So I suggest mom wearing light layers so if you get hot you can take a layer offer.
Newborns are best to photograph between 5-10 days old. No older than 12 days.
I like to start newborn sessions around 10am or 11am

  • nude is best for newborns. I do have some diaper covers if needed.
  • hat & headbands ( I supply these but if you have something special please bring it)
  • Mom & Dad wear a simple plain black shirt.

Families and Children

Family sessions are an hour – two hours.  Make sure to plan on a break or two if  you have small children.  Bring a snack or bribe for them as an insensitive.
I like to keep family sessions relaxed. I Love capturing the unposed moments & Interaction shots.  So I may step back and just let your family be you with a few suggestions to help get you started.

  • Avoid matching outifts, but rather try to find outfits that compliment each other
  • Avoid clothing with logos and busy patterns
  • Jeans
  • accessories, such as headbands, scarves, jewelry, jackets and hats can really add to your look
  • cowboy boots, rain boots, converse, toms
  • striped or patterned stockings/tights
  • tutus, pettiskirts, petti rompers ( I do have several of these in different sizes and colors)
  • Check out Old Navy, Gap, Childrens Place,  Gymborees & Target outfits online to get ideas for what goes together for the current season.
Sessions are two hours long with 2 different shooting locations.  Bring several changes of clothing for a variety.
  • accessories, such as headbands, scarves, jewelry, jackets and hats can really add to your look
  • Shoes always help make the outfit : cowboy boots, rainboots, converse, toms, vans, heals, boots
  • Dress for the location
  • Avoid clothing with logos and busy patterns
  • Bring items that show case your personality, sports and or hobbies.
Maternity sessions are best around 7 -8m months when your bump is almost at its fullest.  These sessions can be just Mom to be, Couple or family.
  • denim jeans
  • basic tank top
  • flowy dress or white sun dress
  • white button down blouse
  • Tube top or bikini top if the weather is warm enough
  • sonogram photos(s)
  • Keep everything simple to really show case you bump.



What time of day do you sessions?
I shoot in the morning before the sun is too high or 2 hours before sunset.  However if it is overcast out we can shoot at mid afternoon also.

Do you shoot in the rain?
No.  I will not shoot in the rain and risk my gear.  If the session cant be reschedule we can see if we can find a covered location

Do you shoot weddings?
No.  I have photographed them in the past and found I just dont have a passion to shoot them.  I can refer you to several  local photographer friends if need.

Do you photograph events?

Do you have a studio?
I have a small in home studio.  I only photograph newborns & babies indoors.  I can fit a small family during a newborn session if needed.

Do you have a Print Lab Recommendation for non photographers?
If you are not ordering prints from me, I highly suggest printing your photos at You will get high quality professional prints. If you print somewhere else, I can not guarantee the quality of your prints.
