Preparing for your session
Simple is best. This will allow the photographs to focus on the baby. Avoid patterns, prints and logos. For younger babies, please try not to put on any tight socks or clothing with elastic since it leaves marks on the skin that take awhile to fade. Adults please bring at least two outfits, one black the other your choice. Long sleeve or 3-quarter sleeve are generally preferable.
Feel free to bring anything that your child is connected to or comfortable with, a favorite stuffed animal, blanket or toy. I have a variety to choose from to create a unique portrait. (This can be discussed in the pre-session consultation.)
Location of the Session
Studio Sessions are located in my home in Pleasanton. This allows me to provide professional lighting, backdrops and props in the comfort of a home setting. Private space available for nursing mommies.
Outdoor Sessions are available and recommended for children over one year. Choose Tri-Valley location or I will meet you at your favorite park or open space. (Travel fee may apply)
Newborn photo sessions are offered at your home for convenience. Minimum space of 10 X10 is required. Travel/Set up - fee $ 100.
My goal is to create images of your baby that capture their individuality in a comfortable setting. An expression you don't want to forget and those tiny details that change as they grow. All these elements will be discussed in the pre-session consultation. Feedings are common during a newborn session and time is allowed for this.
