when you walk in…

Yes, here’s where all the magic happens — come on in and relax! My studio is a beautiful, hip, 100-year old building. It has a great vibe — very flexible and comfortable. When you first arrive, I’ll spend some time with you to get to know you and your family. What’s your personal style? What cute clothes have you brought along? Plus, we’ll look over some of my past work together to see which photographs you like most. I’ll spend between 1 and 3 hours with you and your family. Don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of time for snacks, breaks, diaper changes, wipes, smiles, cuddles, etc. Your session will be relaxed, playful, fun and full of laughs.

 

picking the perfect outfit for your shoot…

It’s always the key question, isn’t it — what to wear!? What’s sweet enough for babies and cool enough for you? Of course, you’re never too young to dress in style. But if you’re not sure if the super-cute outfit you have in mind will stand the test of time on your living room wall, just ask. My favorites are layered outfits, bare feet, and babies with lots of skin showing. Can’t find a matching sweater for the one your Second Cousin Annabel knitted for your little tyke? Don’t fret. It’s not necessary to have matching outfits if you have more than one child, though they can be similar, if you like.

 

planning your day…

This will be a fun, relaxed day. I schedule plenty of time for you, so you’ll never feel any need to rush. A favorite song, peek-a-boo, silly smiles, that favorite toy from the floor of the closet, as well as spontaneous joy are always welcome in the studio! Before you arrive, make sure each munchkin has had their beauty sleep. Give yourself enough time so you don’t feel it’s a scramble to get here or under pressure to race away afterward for that long-overdue visit with Aunt Millie. Children can pick up on your stress and react to it.

If your bundle of joy is feeling under the weather that day, however, it’s better to reschedule.
 

little necessities to bring along…

Remember to bring snacks & drinks, favorite toys, several changes of clothing and a special blanket.Need more ideas? Feel free to call me for extra suggestions.
 

after your session…

Tada! Drum roll please… images from your session are uploaded very quickly to a custom web-gallery so you, your family and friends can enjoy, ponder, smile and talk all about them. All digital images are shot in color, then presented in a mix of color and black & white. Schedule a studio appointment to view your favorites enlarged on our computer monitor before choosing, if you like. I also offer phone and email ordering.
