One of the most popular questions I get from parents of young children is what to bring to their children’s photo session. It doesn’t matter if you are booking a mini session or a fool one, there are certain necessities I recommend bringing with you.
⭕️ DIAPER BAG FOR BABIES.
Babies will need a fresh diaper right before or during the session. Or you may need a pacifier, a favorite toy, or a headband.
⭕️ CHANGE OF CLOTHES.
Bringing a few outfits for your child is very important. You can bring some extra clothes for you as well, even if you’re not in the pictures, because you may need a change at some point ))) For example, if you will be covered in a cake if it’s a cake smash 來
⭕️ WATER AND SNACKS.
I advise feeding your child about 30 minutes to an hour before the session, so your baby has a not too full tummy. But also bring with you your kid’s favorite snack (but, please, nothing too heavy or messy) and some water.
Bring your child’s favorite toy. An item that can help them relax during the session. Don’t bring too many toys, just 1 or 2. If you bring too many that may lead to sensory overload, which can also cause tears.
If your child is old enough for a reward after the session, why not? It can be a lollipop or a trip to a playground after the job is well done.
Let me know ahead of time if you have a specific prop, accessory, or outfit in mind. Accessories look great in photos. Anything goes, bows, hats, headbands, bow ties, suspenders, jewelry, etc. I also have some things in my client closet.
