how to prepare

newborns and babies are best photographed in nothing. I provide some blankets, hats, headbands and props to make sure they look special. jeans for kids is always a good choice along with bare feet. avoid large logos and prints. you can bring several different outfits to the session so I can help you choose which ones would work best. you can also take with you anything what is special for your child, like a favourite toy, name tags or first shoes.

the best time to photograph newborns is within the first two weeks of life. during this time they sleep more soundly and curl up easily into adorable poses. another golden moment for photographing babies, less than a year old, is when they can sit well but are not crawling yet. when planning outdoor photo sessions, early mornings or late afternoons are the best time for optimal lighting.
