Scheduling Your Little One's Session

So, you're considering a session for your baby? FUN!

You'll find lots of helpful information below. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions.  

When to Schedule... 

I recommend scheduling at least 3 weeks in advance, if possible. That gives us time to make plans & get organized without adding stress/rushing into the mix. If you're hoping to do the session in fewer than 3 weeks - no worries. Contact me for availability. 

Little ones tend to be happier after a night's rest, so I typically suggest AM sessions for little ones. I promise not to judge you if you rest at the studio during your baby's session. In fact, I'll be impressed and happy for you.

I like to take any family/sibling photos first. After group photos, baby is typically ready for the first break, and then we'll move on to individual photos.

At the Studio...

If you prefer a studio session, this info's for you! 

When you arrive at the studio, it'll be nice and warm for your little one, so be prepared to layer down to stay comfortable. 

I will provide light snacks and water, but please feel free to bring anything that might make your family more comfortable during the session. 

I have a variety of blankets, backdrops, and accessories that we can choose from once you arrive. Please feel free to bring your own accessories (especially any diaper covers you'd like to use) as well.

If you have any special items that mean something to you e.g. an old wood rocking horse, a stuffed toy, a special blanket - please bring it and we can try and incorporate it into your shoot.

With little ones you might want to have a change of clothing (or two) for YOU as it is almost impossible to avoid accidents such as spit up or getting wet with a naked baby. So, don’t worry, this too is expected and I will have several blankets on hand to swap in/out.

In Your Home or On Location...

Prefer some photos at home or at a favorite place? Love that! Let's make a plan!

If we'll be at your home, DON'T feel like you have to have things in perfect condition; I get that you recently had a baby and that having a pristine home is NOT your top priority. 

We'll need some good light (your home has windows, right? - Good.), a bit of space, and YOU. If you had a blast working on your little one's nursery space, we can definitely incorporate that into the shoot, but it's not required.  Living rooms and master bedrooms usually have great light too!

"At Home" sessions will have more of a "lifestyle" or natural (less posing and props etc) feel to them. 

We can chat about those details during your consultation, or the day of your session, before we get started.  Just let me know what you prefer.

Birthday Cake Sessions

Emily Hall Photography now offers birthday cake sessions at the studio!

Cakes for the sessions are provided by Sweet Dreams Cupcakery. (If you prefer to bring your own cake, you totally can. But you don't have to.)

Additional Notes...

If you have signed a model release I will send you links to few digital low-res files within 48 hours of our session. Keep in mind these files are water-marked as I still own copyright on them.
