The session is baby led, so if baby doesn't like a pose, we skip it and move on. Not every baby liked all poses, so there is no guarantee of having any particular pose.
The room is kept very warm for baby, about 75 to 80 degrees, so baby can be naked without getting chilled.
Care is take to always keep baby safe, and keep baby's neck supported.
Most babies will poop, pee, or spit up on some of my stuff at least once during the session -- this is no problem, I go home and put everything in the wash.
I provide all needed props for the session. A wide variety of headbands, hats, bonnets, rompers, pants, fur blankets, etc. are available in most colors. About 90% of props shown on my website and facebook are currently available for use. If there is a prop you love that you've seen in one of my pictures, please let be know a day or two before your session so I can be sure it's ready to go and not in the wash at the time of your session. If there's a color for a hat or outfit you'd like in your session, but haven't seen it on my website, let me know at least 2 weeks before your session so I can get a custom color in for you if possible.
If you have any sentimental items to incorporate into the session, please limit them to 1 to 2, as that's usually all there is time to do.
Please be aware that the amount of pinterest inspired pictures I can do is limited. In order to provide you with the best images possible, I've developed my own flow for the session that has a step-by-step pattern to keep baby as happy as possible and give you a gallery that reflects what you see on my website. It's usually not possible to do Pinterest pictures, as they typically require a different flow or a different studio set up to what I currently use. If you'd like to try to do 1 or 2 things that you've seen on Pinterest, please check with me before the session to see what is possible.
A better option is to go directly to my website and look for images that you like. You can show these to me, either via email or at your session, and there's a much better chance that I'll be able to get what you're looking for.
