Perfectly Imperfect

New and expecting mamas, let the goal of trying to be a perfect mom fade away! Perfecting motherhood is impossible, like SO impossible.

You don’t need the perfect baby registry; you don’t need the perfect nursery! Even the process of your maternity and newborn session doesn’t need to be perfect.

I get asked a lot, “How can I prep for my session so it will go perfectly?” from expecting moms. And it’s a GREAT question!

First of all, it won’t go perfectly! Not in a bad way though. Your dress may fit weird that morning or you have a fly away hair that just won’t lay flat. But don’t worry- I always try to bring an extra maternity gown in my car, I will fix your hair throughout your session, and of course pose you!

Maternity Session

And newborn sessions? Don’t fret them. Bring the siblings for their picture with the new baby- their silliness and sound does not bother me. I’m a mom of two boys- I get it! Worried the baby might fuss during your time? Bring a paci (if you want to!) and let me help rock that sweet baby back to sleep. I keep it nice and warm in the studio and can bring out the baby shusher to help too.

What you CAN do to prep for a great newborn session is to be on time, bring extra snacks for siblings (or even have a grandparent/friend pick them up after their portion of photos are done), bring baby in loose clothing, relax (take a nap on my studio couch if you want!), and expect your baby to run the show.
