WHAT TO WEAR

FOR OUR FINE ART PORTRAITS

I RECOMMEND BRINGING A DARK/BRIGHT OPTION. DON'T BE AFRAID OF COLOR, TEXTURE OR PRINTS. FOR THESE PORTRAITS WILL POP AND BRING OUT ALL OF THOSE BEAUTIFUL TONES. STAY CLEAR OF BRANDING AND IMAGES ON THE FRONT OF T-SHIRTS AS WE DON'T WANT THE FOCUS TO BE DRAWN FROM YOUR BEAUTIFUL SMILES!

WHAT TO WEAR

FOR OUR CLASSIC SETUP

These portraits are beautiful and timeless, where we want to capture your family in a natural way. I recommend bringing a light option of clothing. Whites, beige, cotton work beautifully. You can still add a pop of color if you like.

WHAT TO WEAR

OUR BOHO SETUP

These portraits are similar to the Classic Setup. Beautiful whites, creams and earthy tones will work best.

STUDIO WARDROBE


I HAVE SOURCED A LARGE VARIETY OF PROPS, WRAPS, WOOLY LAYERS, BONNETS AND GOWNS FROM VENDORS ALL ACROSS THE WORLD. THESE ARE AVAILABLE TO CLIENTS WHO COME IN FOR A FULL SESSION. FEEL FREE TO GO THROUGH THE STUDIO WARDROBE TO SEE IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO USE DURING YOUR SESSION. UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO TIME LIMITATIONS THE STUDIO WARDROBE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THOSE COMING IN FOR MINI SESSIONS OR PORTRAIT DAYS.

FOR NEWBORN SESSIONS

BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE

IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU GIVE BABY A GOOD FEED BEFORE LEAVING THE HOUSE. THIS WILL ENSURE THAT WHEN YOU ARRIVE BABY WILL BE READY TO START THE SESSION STRAIGHT AWAY.(PACK A LITTLE EXTRA MILK FOR US TOO, OR WE'LL JUST HAVE YOU ON HAND IF YOU ARE EXCLUSIVELY NURSING)

PLEASE BRING ALONG A PACIFIER!
THIS WILL HELP SOOTHE BABY BACK TO SLEEP AND WILL ONLY BE USED AS A LAST RESORT IF BABY IS UNSETTLED DURING THE SESSION. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THAT THIS HAS BEEN A LIFESAVER FOR SOME SESSIONS!

SIBLING AND FAMILY PORTRAITS

WHAT TO EXPECT

ALL NEWBORN SESSIONS INCLUDE MUM, DAD AND SIBLINGS...THESE CAN ALSO INCLUDE FUR BABIES.

I USUALLY START WITH A QUICK SET OF PROP PORTRAITS OF BABY AND THEN WORK MY WAY THROUGH SIBLING AND FAMILY SHOTS. PLEASE BRING ALONG SOMETHING TO KEEP YOUR LITTLIES BUSY WHILST I GET THROUGH THE BABY ONLY POSING. IF YOU ARE BRINGING ALONG "INCENTIVES" PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THESE OUT ON ARRIVAL, INSTEAD KEEP THEM ASIDE FOR IF WE NEED THEM LATER ON DURING THE SESSION. TRY TO AVOID FOODS THAT WILL BE MESSY I.E CHOCOLATE

A SPECIAL TO-DO FOR MUMMAS!

BREATHE, RELAX AND ENJOY YOUR SESSION!

I KNOW THIS IS MUCH EASIER SAID THAN DONE. MOST MUMMAS COME INTO THE STUDIO AND IT'S THEIR FIRST EXPERIENCE OF LEAVING HOME WITH THEIR NEW BABY...BUT I PROMISE YOU THAT WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH THE DOOR I'VE GOT YOU! I WILL TAKE BABY OFF YOUR HANDS AND I WILL WORK MY MAGIC...SO REALLY, TAKE A BREATHE, SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE!

FAQ

WHAT IF MY BABY WEES/POOS?

A.PLEASE DON'T PANIC IF YOUR LITTLE ONE HAPPENS TO POO/WEE ON ME (OR YOU), I COMPLETELY EXPECT IT AND QUITE HONESTLY I AM VERY USED TO IT! ALL MY WRAPS AND PROPS ARE CLEANED WITH BABY FRIENDLY DETERGENTS BETWEEN EACH SESSION.

WHAT IF MY BABY IS FUSSY?

A.IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY HEARD, I AM A BABY WHISPERER AND HAVE INFINITE AMOUNT OF PATIENCE!
I HAVE MANY TRICKS UP MY SLEEVE AND I'LL USE MY MAGIC TO KEEP BABY CALM AND SETTLED DURING THE SESSION.
