Once you have booked your photo session I send you a Pinterest Board for inspiration. I can also help over email or FaceTime to put together the perfect outfits.
 
Maternity - I have a client wardrobe with lots of beautiful gowns for all my Mamas to-be to wear. All draping fabric is also in studio to use.
 
Newborn & Family - Best thing is to dress "you", are you happy with this outfit? Does it make you feel good? These are questions I want you to ask yourself while picking an outfit. If a dress isn't you Don't wear a dress! The only thing I do recommend "avoid big logos and patterns, bright reds, dark blues and oranges.

I have pretty much everything in studio for your newborn shoot. All props and wraps you see in my photos are in studio for you to use. If you would love to add a personal touch please bring along a special blanket to add into photos.

Sure thing! In the COVID days this question was asked alot! I understand so many people have family overseas and I have three digital file packages - 8, 16 and "all" images.

All newborn get penciled into a "due date" booking. This booking is so I know I have shoots coming up. Only about 10% of babies are photographed on this first booking. If baby is late we push that shoot back and if baby is early it can come forward. I will email you around your due date to see if bub is here yet.
