Guidelines and tips to make the most of your child’s portrait:
-For babies and toddlers, please be aware of their regular pediatric appointments for routine immunization shots. Little ones need a few days to recover from these sometime ‘traumatic’ visits. Please schedule appointments before visiting the Dr or a week after their appointment.
-Schedule your appointment for your toddler or preschooler for about an hour after their regular nap time usually ends.
-Make sure they gets their nap before they come in.
-Children’s sittings allow for two outfits. Additional outfits incur an extra charge and should be scheduled in advance.
-For portraits, children’s clothes should be simple in pattern and design. Also, children should be comfortable in their clothes.
-Feel free to bring his favorite blanket or toy! Even if the item doesn’t make it into the shot, it can make him feel more comfortable.
-For infants, bring extra diapers, formula, and pacifiers.
-Too many family and friends in a small room can cause children to feel pressured and anxious. Please limit the number of adults to 2.
-Relax! We have plenty of time, and it’s very natural for a child to take several minutes to feel comfortable and ready to take photos!
-For Outdoor portraits, early morning or early evening is better for everybody. Bright, direct sun will cause children to squint and be uncomfortable.
-Keep shoes off infants under the age of 2, they do better with out them.
-Plan haircuts around your child’s next portrait schedule-have hair cut about two weeks before portrait sitting.
-Remember, we never say “SMILE” to the children- It is best to capture the expressions naturally.
