The best time to schedule a newborn session is before your precious little one has even arrived!

Newborns change soooooooo quickly! Because of this, newborn portraits are only captured within the first 2 weeks, when babies are nice and sleepy, and flexible.
Do you reschedule for incliment weather?
Because I am an on location photographer, I will watch the weather forcast closely to ensure we have the perfect day for shooting. If there is incliment weather coming, I will contact my clients to reschedule their shoot so that they have the best experience and the best pictures that I can offer them.

Good clothing choice is key to a great photo session! For group sessions, you definitely should coordinate. Keep it simple. Stay away from large busy patterns and logos. Wear some fun shoes! There is nothing better than a pair of great boots or heals.
