Newborn Session Tip #2: How to prepare for your session.

Today's blog post is part 2 of How to prepare for your newborn session.  See yesterday's post for more information and helpful tips. Clothing:

Since the main focal point of our session together is your newborn baby, Things are kept to a minimum so that I can showcase the real reason why you are here. To announce and celebrate your newest family addition.  Often times mom and dad prefer to focus just on baby and this is totally fine. However I do love it when mom is willing to jump in for a few photographs with baby.  Whether you'd like a relaxed casual session with your newborn or both parents present, this session is as unique as you are.  Your clothing is no different.  I generally advise to keep things simple.  Light airy clothing allows for some softer images. Mom, I like to suggest cotton knit camisoles, long or short sleeve tops ( solid colours work best) and don't be afraid to layer. This allows for us to hide areas that we are not ready to show off yet, and still feel beautiful and proud!  Dads, again solid colours work well, refrain from busy prints/graffic tee's and button down shirts.  Treat your newborn family photographs as one outfit. Compliment each other and know that be comfortable in your jeans ( for both) or mom in a light airy skirt.Wrinkles do show up in photographs so it's best to keep things neat and tidy.

I usually start off focusing my attention on baby and then encorporate any other images needed during the session afterwards. Should there be something unique to your family or a photograph you've seen on the website or blog and just have to have it. Please let me know. I love knowing that you've taken the time and done some homework researching prior to arrival.

Lastly, relax and don't forget to breathe.  You are in wonderful hands and I promise to WOW you with the images we will create for your baby. A box of Kleenex will be close at hand :)

Here's a recent testimonial from a client:

"My husband and I had the most wonderful experience with Petra during our sons’ newborn session. She is amazingly talented and it shows through our beautiful pictures. I can't thank her enough for spending precious time with our sweet baby Daniel. She took this incredibly special time in our life and made it into memories we will be able to cherish forever. We are looking forward to doing many more family photo sessions with Petra King Photography in the near future."-Liz

See you soon.
