What to Wear?
Your clothing should fit well, be comfortable and reflect your personal style.
I recommend coordinating your colors or tones rather than matching. For studio sessions- neutrals, white, cream, pastels/muted colors, and grays look very nice.
Studio sessions are normally shoe-less sessions, but if you have a pair that you love, please be sure that the soles are bright and super clean.
I recommend avoiding neon colors and shirts with large logos, characters or words. Don’t be afraid of print. Prints look great but I do recommend
limiting it to just one or two members of your family. I would also pass on clothing with skinny stripes. Small stripes can create a wavy optical illusion in pictures. Fabric with textures are a great way to add interest to your images.
To get the most out of your session, make sure that your little one has
rested and has had adequate snacks (or a meal) and water. If you choose to bring a snack, please consider a dry, non messy snack so their little faces stay clean during the session. It is a good idea to give their faces and noses a final check and wipe before you leave for the session.
Prepare older children for the session by letting them know that a friend will be taking some photos of them.
Remember that children are not usually fond of being told to pose or smile. It is best if we give them some time to relax and try to capture their natural self. Don't worry if your child is active. We will get some posed images and more active pictures to mix things up for the children. I love to mix in candid shots of kids just being kids in your gallery.
*As long as mom and dad are smiling, we will get great pictures.
Please bring the balance of your payment to your session. Checks can be made out to the Daley Lens. If you would like to pay with credit or debit card, please let me know and I will email you a payment link.
Your online digital gallery link will be delivered to your email 1-2 weeks
after your session. Please note that your digital images will be available for download after your print order has been placed (minimum order $125).
I share images from my sessions on my website and on social media.
Please let me know if you wish to keep your gallery private or if you would prefer not to be tagged in posts that contain your images.
Heirloom print products ensure that your session investment turns into
tangible memories for your family. Archival quality fine art prints, albums, custom frames are a beautiful addition to your session. Start thinking about how you would like to preserve your memories for your family. Your print products are ordered directly through your image gallery. Once your
product order has been received, I will email you with the PIN number you need to download your digital images.
If you, your baby, or someone in your household is not feeling well, please contact me right away so we can discuss options and reschedule your session.
