You're having family portraits done!! Now what?!

This is the perfect time to pamper yourself! Go have your hair and make up done, schedule a massage or have your nails done. Get relaxed! Looking super relaxed and at your best will make you feel more comfortable during your session!

What to wear: Simple & Timeless clothing is usually the best. Please avoid logos, busy patterns and large designs on your clothing.

Moms & Dads: Make sure you're comfortable in what you're wearing! I will have you sitting, standing, cuddling, tickling and walking so you want to be able to move around easily what you're wearing.

Snacks: Bring age-appropriate snacks - there is no way you can get smiles when tummies are growling! Puffs and Cheerios are great. Leave the messy treats that may stain clothing or melt at home.

Props: Children's books, lovies, toy trains or cars, dolls, bubbles, wagons are always welcome.

Rested: Yes! Please consider your child's nap schedule when booking your appointment. Well-rested children are always happier and more willing to cooperate.

Empty out those pockets: I usually have my bag or even my daughter's stroller in tow in case you do not. Wallets, cell phones, keys, etc, please take them out of your pockets. If you don't have a secure place to keep them, I will hold them for you!

Arrive Early: Planning to arrive 10-15 minutes earlier will ensure that we get started right on time and maximize all of your scheduled shooing time, plus allow your child a chance to acclimate to their surroundings

Try & Relax: None of my clients are professional models and I promise to help you look and feel natural in front of the camera. You're going to be a pro by the end of our session.

The last thing I want to add before I head on out, enjoy yourself. Do not worry if your child is acting out or uneasy about smiling or just doesn't want to take photos, I can promise you that I know what I'm doing and I will do my absolute best to get your child in a good mood and cooperating.
