Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS!! You have entered a new and glorious phase of your life. You have this glorious, precious addition to your family. Life with your newborn will have it's ups and downs - but mostly they will be a delight and wonder in your life.

So, now is the opportunity to start building your memories and recording the moments of their life. In only a couple of months you will find it tough to remember your big infant as that tiny baby that has just joined you.

At EeVee Photography I want to make sure your baby photo session is as calm as possible. I understand you already have a lot going on. Don't stress - your shoot will be a nice and painless affair.

What to bring for photographs:

If there are any special toys, blankets or outfits they are terrific to bring along. Maybe you have a special family heirloom? Is there something fun that will remind you of these days?

In general I tend to shoot without too many props with babies. After all it is them we are interested in.

I normally do 2 or 3 outfits with your baby.

Babies can get a bit grumpy about outfits changes, so we suggest you arrive with them already in one outfit.

Many parents like to have some bare newborn (or with nappy) images. Usually we put that in the middle so it becomes part of an getup change.

What to bring to be practical:

Nappies and changing gear. 
Bib and tissues.
Toys or rattles.

Whatever you need to feed your babe. Don't stress, if your baby decides it is feeding time, then I am happy to take a little moment out while that gets sorted.

What to bring for yourself.

Remember, I am going to include you in the photos as well. For babe photographs it is great to have plain outfits, so plain white or simple black tops work really well. Avoid big jewelry, babies do like to grab and pull these.

About the shoot.

The shoot will be calm and relaxed. I know babies don't always want to co-operate and have their own needs. I'll take the time to move along slowly at your child's pace.

If they are crying then it's okay to take a gap to get them settled. If they are feeling dozy and want to sleep that is okay too. 

The main thing is that you don't need to worry, you can just chill and let things take their course.

If you have any queries, or want to order your sitting, then please telephone 0411547047 where I will be happy to help out.
