Please take a moment to click on the link below and fill out the model release and contract if you have not already done so. This must be completed prior to your session.
Just a few tips and suggestions to prepare for the session:
If at all possible, try to keep baby stimulated and awake an hour or so before the session; a bath usually helps in keeping them awake. It’s very important baby is sleepy so the session goes smoothly and I’m able to capture lots of adorable images. 🙂 It’s best to start on a full belly so please feed him/her 45 minutes before your session is scheduled to start. Please dress him/her in a button down outfit so I don’t have to pull anything over their head while undressing them.
Please turn the heat in the house to 75 degrees so baby stays nice and warm during the session. Sessions can take up to 4 hours even with a very sleepy baby. Most parents take advantage of this little break and just relax. 🙂
Please have a pacifier to ensure your baby remains comfortable throughout their session. A few other items to have on hand are diapers and wipes.
There will most likely be one feeding break at some point during the session. We will take breaks as we need to, some babies require more breaks than others and some babies may sleep right through the session. I will play a white noise machine during the session to mimic the sounds of the womb.
Gas : If you are breastfeeding and your baby has gas issues, please abstain from eating the following 48 hours before your session: dairy products — milk, cheese, yogurt, pudding, ice cream, or any food that has milk, milk products, casein, whey, or sodium casein in it. Other foods that may cause gas and fussiness include anything with caffeine, soy, fish, peanuts, chocolate, wheat, beef, nuts, eggs, corn, citrus fruits and prenatal vitamins containing iron. –Courtesy Babycenter & ModernMom Parenting
