TIPS BEFORE YOUR PHOTOSHOOT

Here are some handy tips and information ahead of your photo session so you know what to expect and bring with you on the day!

Family Photo Session

Family photo sessions last up to one hour. During this time there will be the opportunity for sibling/parent and child/individual and group photos.

 

I highly recommend wearing white, black or neutral coloured clothing for these shots and I have a bathroom you can change in if you wish to bring these clothes with you. You are welcome to bring an extra outfit with you also, however this will only be possible if time allows. If your little one dribbles a lot it may be worth bringing a spare top for them.

Newborn Photo Session

Newborn sessions last up to 2 hours, you will need to bring with you plenty of milk and nappies as your little one may need more milk top ups than normal! Please also feed your little one before your session. 

 

Please also pack any special toys or clothing items that you would like in the photos.

During the session there will be time at the end for parent and sibling photos. I highly recommend wearing white, black or neutral coloured clothing for these shots and I have a bathroom you can change in if you wish to bring these clothes with you.

For older siblings it may be worth bringing non messy treats and something to entertain them in-between and post photos.

Cake Smash Photo Session

Your cake smash session will last up to one hour, this includes photos of your little one enjoying their cake, followed by photos of them chilling out after in a little bubble bath!

Please bring with you: an outfit for the cake smash (ideally something that you don't mind getting messy/stained), A towel and clean outfit for afterwards. 

If you have chosen to bring your own cake this will need to be brought with you on the day.

If you have chosen a professionally baked cake, this will be delivered ahead of your photo session to my studio.

Mini Photo Sessions

Mini photo sessions will take anywhere between 20 - 30 minutes (unless stated differently in the booking notes).

I recommend wearing white, black or neutral coloured clothing for your photo session. 

If your little one dribbles a lot it may be worth bringing a spare top for them.

For ''Fairy' and 'Toy Story' you may wish to bring your little one in their normal clothes and change them into their costume at the shoot.

 

For 'First Day' mini sessions you may wish to bring your child's school book bag/fleece/cardigan or anything else with their school logo on to add into images.  

You may also wish to bring small edible treats for your little ones. I recommend something that isn't messy or involves being held like white chocolate buttons or raisins etc.

Beach Mini Session

Beach mini sessions are super limited and take place at a gorgeous sandy beach just outside of Bristol, for this session I advise families wear white clothing as this looks very fresh and summery.

Due to the beach being down a slight path I advise you do not bring push chairs to this session due to wheels in the sand. 

Dogs are welcome all year round at this beach so please feel free to bring your well behaved dogs to your session.

The car park is just a one minute walk from the beach and I will meet you at the entrance to the beach directly opposite the car park.

Christmas Mini Session

Your Christmas mini session is up to 30 minutes long, this allows time for family/sibling and individual photos.

I have a different backdrop every year and will share an image of this backdrop in July.

I highly recommend, white, natural or red coloured clothing and will share clothing inspiration in the lead up to winter on my instagram story, please message me if you have any questions or would like a copy of this or the backdrop.
