If your goal is to capture your baby when he/she is still very fresh, sleepy and new, then we recommend having your session within the first 10 days of life. However, this is not a requirement. I will successfully provide you with beautiful images of your baby at any age. The goal for every session is to give you a beautiful variety of images while keeping your time in mind. Because all babies are different, please plan on about 2+ hrs for a newborn session. This will accommodate, feedings, changing, clean-ups, etc… The studio is kept nice and warm to keep your baby comfortable, please be sure to wear light layered clothing so you can adjust accordingly. Please be sure to bring enough milk/formula, diapers, wipes and snacks.
Maternity, Baby Steps & Birthday Baby Sessions
These sessions are taken in the studio and typically last a little over an hour. The Hudson/Stow Giant Eagle bakery creates beautiful smash cakes. If you’re interested in incorporating a smash cake, please contact the bakery department at least 72 hrs prior to your session date. If you need any assistance, please let us know.
Choosing what to wear for your photo shoot can be a little overwhelming. Here are some quick tips on how to put together portrait perfect outfits for your session. Ideally, simpler is better to keep the emphasis on your baby. I HIGHLY recommend sticking to earth tones or muted tones. You want faces and personalities to be the main focus not a bright color. Also earth tones and muted tones will work with every décor and will not go out of style like trendy colors will. Start with one article of clothing as an inspiration piece. Build your color palette with one to two neutrals and one accent (every color has a muted shade). For large groups stay within a color family but avoid exactly matching outfits. Layers and textures are beautiful and can add a level of style to every outfit.
- natural soft colors
- muted colors
- earth tones
- stream-lined layering (thin layers)
- large bold patterns and prints
- neon colors, all black or all white
- thick clothing
- matching clothing
- tight or baggy clothing
