How to prepare for your baby photoshoot
WHEN TO SCHEDULE YOUR BABY / SITTER / MILESTONE SHOOT?
The best time to schedule your little ones photo session is when baby can sit comfortably and is able to crawl, but can not walk yet. Since every baby’s development is so different it can be anywhere around 6 months – 10 months.
Baby sitter sessions are one of my favourite sessions! Babies are very interactive at this age and smile easily and make the most adorable faces.
HOW LONG DOES A SITTER SESSION TAKE?
Your little one is the star of the show and I will make it as short or long as they participate. They usually run to around 45 minutes, sometimes shorter or longer and usually involves 2-3 different background/prop setups and a few outfit changes.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Make sure that you bring milk or snacks for your baby. Offering your baby a bottle or breastfeeding your child would comfort and calm him or her should they be stressed in new environments. I have a lot of accessories and outfits for your little sitter, so you don’t need to bring anything in terms of clothing for this session. If you do have an adorable neutral coloured, pattern free outfit you are welcome to bring it.
It would be great if you could bring a favourite toy to get their attention. I have bubbles at the studio which are also always a hit.
I would love to capture your little sitter! If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to contact me! I am looking forward to meeting your growing family!
