Mini Session Prep Information
In order to get the most our of our session, please read this information over carefully.
We only have 15 minutes together, so please be on time. Coming up to 15 minutes early to dress kiddos, brush hair and take care of any last minute touch ups is completely fine. We will end promptly 15 minutes before the next session time. Sessions start on the hour and half hour. If your kiddo(s) is cooperating easily and enjoying our session, it could be as quick as 5 minutes. If they need a little time to warm up we could go the entire 15 mins. Either way, we'll have captured some adorable images and you'll have plenty to choose from.
Bring clean kiddos! Trim and clean finger nails. Make sure there are no remains of last meals on faces. And check for sleep in eyes. Feel free to bring your child's outfit and change at the studio to keep it clean and unwrinkled. And double check faces before we start. I will have wipes on hand if you need them.
NEW POLICY! There will be additional editing fees for wrinkles, stains, or anything that is easily preventable with some thoughtful preparation. IE chipped finger nail polish, hair roots needing touch ups, stamps/marker on body, blue sucker stained teeth and lips, and crusty noses, food on face. **Please note, editing blemishes, minor bobos, bruises and things out of our control are always included in the session fee. Contact me prior to session if there is a major injury (ie swelling, black eye, or cast).
Please respect my space by keeping little ones from exploring with their hands in the waiting/prop room and studio. No children are allowed beyond the studio and waiting room into my home for liability purposes. No exceptions. Children who are not being photographed are not permitted to be in the studio room.
What to bring:
-Bring clean shoes for your little ones. Don't let them walk in with them on. Dirty shoes leave marks all over the backdrop. Bring clean socks for all adults helping. No shoes, and no bare feet are allowed on the backdrop floor.
-Bringing a favorite snack as incentive for little ones is fine, however, do not bring chocolate or anything colored that will stain their mouths, or drool.
-Brushes. Hair spray. Lip gloss. Anything for touch ups before our session. Don't let touch ups steal any time from our session! Remember to be early for this part!
-Favorite items that make little one laugh. Fav song pulled up on YouTube on your phone.
-If you have a family member who wants to attend to help get kiddo's attention and smiles, you're more than welcome to bring them along!
-Please let me know if you are bringing any prop items so I can prepare for that. But none are necessary.
Info I need from you:
- List your kids names and ages.
- Giving me tips about your such as what your kids enjoy, things that are funny to them, favorite song, favorite character, television show or movie, etc, can be tremendously helpful.
- Your phone number.
***SICK POLICY: If your child wakes up sick with a snotty runny nose that is not clear or allergy related, coughing, fever, or vomiting, (or fever or vomiting w/in 24 hours) please call me ASAP to discuss rescheduling options. Not only will your little one be cranky when away from home while sick, but also, I work with newborns and try to keep illness out of the studio for the safety of my littlest clients. PLEASE DO NOT BOOK A SESSION THE DAY AFTER/MORNING OF SHOTS! Babies need a little time to recover from shots and can be cranky, feverish and even in pain after. We want your little one to be in the best mood possible for their session, so consider all these things to ensure all the elements are working for us! I absolutely do not mind rescheduling, at no additional cost, to make sure we have the best possible outcome if you contact me in advance. But I will not reschedule for an unhappy sick little one if you chose to bring them anyway.
