Planning your Newborn Photo Session is so much fun...
but it can also seem overwhelming. There are so many things to consider to make sure that your session is perfect for you. Here at Precious Steps Photography our goal is to simplify the process so that its easy, stress free and you love the final result.
So let's get started!
Step 1: Choose Colors
My suggestion when choosing colors for your Newborn Session is to think about the colors you love as well as what will go well in your home. If you have a favorite color that you want included, tell me! Even if it is not something that matches your home décor it can still work really well in an album. Before coming for your In-Person Consultation I always suggest sending me some pictures of your home and especially of any areas where you may want to hang Wall Art. This will help us choose the perfect colors and textures for your home.
One last important point about colors... They come in so many different shades! Soooo if there is a specific shade you love make sure to send me a picture of it. Luckily every Newborn Photo Session includes multiple setups so we can include multiple colors!
Step 2: Think about the Final Product
Whichever products you choose to purchase will be loved and looked at for years to come. Close your eyes and picture what it is that you want to see hanging on your walls 5-10 years from now. What would you want to see when flipping through your album? Is there a specific shot, pose or prop that comes to mind?
Don't worry if you don't have a specific look in mind. Part of my job is designing sets that will be gorgeously timeless and perfect for your space.
Step 3: Choose Outfits
If you book the mini or deluxe newborn session this part is super easy! As in you don't have to think about this step at all! I take care of coordinating and providing all wraps, outfits and headbands for your baby.
If you booked the Deluxe Session (aka we are taking family / sibling photos) then we will work together to choose the perfect outfits for everyone. I always suggest choosing simple, solid color clothing. I generally avoid patterned clothing as it can distract from the stars of the picture.... Your family! Your clothes definitely don't have to be exact matches to each other; just make sure they coordinate well together. I love helping with this part. I always suggest sending me pictures of outfit options for every family member so that I can put together the perfect look.
I also have a beautiful client closet with gorgeous couture dresses for girls size 1T - 12, as well as 1T boys outfits. So many times the right dress can help your little girl feel like a princess and make her feel so excited about the session.
Step 4: Show Up & Enjoy
