FUN & STRESS-FREE IS THE WAY TO BE!
Our sessions are always fun and relaxed! We focus on having a great time while never forcing the photography so when you see your images you can feel the emotion that was captivated at that moment. My goal is to capture personality and emotion in every image.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH MY NEW BABY?
The ideal time to photograph a newborn is within 10 days of their birth, typically between days 5 and 8. Once newborns are 10 days or older, "artistic" images are harder to achieve as they sleep less and can become fussy when placed on their tummies or in other poses.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DO A BELLY SESSION?
Typically around 7-8 months but it depends on the mother. We want you to be comfortable for our session so it's best to schedule your session before the end of the 8th month. Everyone is different so contact us to discuss this further.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR OUR SESSION?
Simple sleeved garments in medium to dark tones look best. Darker shades are more flattering and slimming. Clothing in medium shades compliment portraits made in outdoor environments. Bold stripes, plaids, checks and prints don't photograph well unless on children. Bright colors, such as red and orange tend to overpower the face. Avoid light colors that approximate flesh tones such as beige, tan, peach, pink, white and yellow. Very simple garments always photograph best. If you are self-conscious about any part of your body make sure that part is covered, for example if you are self-conscious about your arms you might want to wear long sleeves. Couples or groups should choose simple garments within the same tonal ranges. Light and dark tones mixed together create visual confusion, as one subject comes forward and the other recedes. Clothing that blends harmoniously creates timeless portraiture because the viewer's eye goes directly to the faces.
