Maternity prep list
~ You'll have access to my clients closets with a few maternity gown choices
~ Important clothing to bring ~ Strapless bra, white and black bra with matching full undies, jeans, and fitted top.
~ If bringing children be sure to have matching outs. Neutral tones work best, no logos or bold patterns. You will have access to clients closets for some child outfits.
~ Take the time to pamper yourself ~ hair, makeup, and nails go a long way to making us feel picture ready!

Newborn session prep list for parents
~ Try your best to keep baby up before your session, wont be easy but worth it in the end.
~ Giving baby a bath before your session will make for a sleepy clam baby
~ "milk drunk" babies equals sleepy a baby. Try to feed baby just before you leave for the studio. Also have milk on hand for the mid session fed.
~ What to wear ~ I suggest neutral tones ( whites, creams, grays) nothing with logos or bold patterns. Try and co-ordinate outfits by laying them out on the bed and taking a picture to see the look when put together.
~ You'll have access to my clients closet and prop room.
~ Feel free to bring any props that have sentimental value and I will try my best to include them.
~ Poop happens! Don't stress about my props getting dirty....it happens all the time. Be sure to bring extra clothes for yourself as well as baby. Also have plenty of diapers on hand.
~ Family and siblings picture will usually take place first so the dad may left with kids if thing get a little bonkers. Bring along something for the siblings to keep them entertained.
Cake smash prep
~ First half of the session is regular picture, with access to clients closet and prop room
~ Second half of the session is the smash, you do need to provide your own outfit for the smash.
~ If you are doing the bath you will only be doing one setup before the smash in order to have time for the bath.
~ I will provide everything for the bath along with the towel for after
~ I provide generic props, balloons and banners... themes related props do need to be provided by you.
~ Simple cakes is the way to go, but if you liked to have it match your theme pls send images two weeks before.
