We get this question every day: “How do I get ready for my newborn photography session?” we wrote this blogpost to cover everything from what to wear? what to bring? Studio location and more.

Dear wonderful parents,

We’re thrilled to capture beautiful moments with you and your little one! Also,Just a few friendly notes to make sure everything goes smoothly:

Important tips

1.We keep things cozy with only limited bookings a day, one family at a time so your session gets our full attention!

2.Unexpected things happen—we get it! If you need to reschedule or cancel,  please note we need a heads-up (5 business days advance notice) to accomodate and check the possibility.
Missing the appointment or last minute request, means saying goodbye to a $200 deposit, which covers the reserved time of the studi, scheduled staff, our time and preparation.

3.Traffic can be tricky, so plan ahead to be on time. Also Late arrivals mean a shorter session, and we wouldn’t want you to miss a moment!

4.Immediate family vibes only, please! If needing to add Grand parents check the a la carte prcing and options. As part of the services our professional accommodation is avalable for immidate family only.

5.Kick off your shoes at the door for a homey feel. Don’t fancy being barefoot? Bring along your fave socks or comfy slippers! 🧦

6.We’re fully vaccinated and keep an eye on cold symptoms.But If you’re feeling under the weather, give us an update to get the safety advice.

For Newborn Baby Pictures:

For the newborn photography photoshoot, we provide cute wraps, headbands, bonnets, and props. They’re all part of our service, so you can use, access and choose the them during your session.

No need to worry about bringing baby clothes, unless you have a particular outfit or props you want to include. Feel free to bring those along, and we’ll gladly use them in some of the shots.

To be extra prepared, think about the color theme for your session. For inspiration, take a peek at our Instagram page and save your favorites. Remember, time is limited, so choose wisely based on the service you’ve booked. Each of these adorable shots takes time to capture perfectly.

Got any special ideas or props you’d like to include? Bring them along too! Whether it’s related to your job, a sport you love, or something you’re passionate about, we’re open to incorporating your personal touch into the photoshoot. Some of the pictures in our portfolio even feature clients’ own special items.

For Family Pictures:

Parents, you’re the stars! Take a little time for clean hair and simple makeup. Dads, a fresh haircut is a bonus—our Photoshop skills don’t include haircuts, unfortunately! 😄

For family shots, we offer options: full body or waist-up. 

We suggest coordinating outfits in light or earthy tones for a lovely family vibe. These colors complement our studio lighting backgrounds and natural lighting beautifully. Recommended colors include light grey, beige, creamy, or white.

If you’ve booked a longer session, feel free to change outfits. For full-body shots, a lovely long dress for mom and a white dress shirt with khaki pants for dad are ideal. If you prefer a more casual look, jeans and a t-shirt work great!

Concerned about post-pregnancy belly showing? Opt for a top with a fitted lining underneath and a loose sheer fabric or cardigan on top.
