I provide EVERYTHING you need for the baby…okay maybe not everything.  You will need to feed them but I’ve got the rest.  All the cute little outfits, bonnets, blankets and wraps that we need are in the studio and ready to go.  As for the rest of the family…well that is on you.  But don’t worry I don’t want you to stress. All you need to remember are two simple rules.

Rule#1: Keep it Simple

Rule#2: Keep it Neutral

You want your pictures to be treasured for generations.  The focus shouldn’t be on what you are wearing so here are a few tips to remember:

Avoid bright colors and busy patterns.
Please no logos or graphics on your clothing.
We want to see your faces so please no hats that will shadow your eyes.
Keep jewelry to a minimum.
Make sure clothing fits well and is wrinkle free.

Plan ahead

Before the baby is born we tend to nest.  This is a perfect time to get outfits ready and put them to the side.  Things are going to get a little more chaotic after that little one arrives and you might be a little sleep deprives.
