Location Info

 

Your session will be held in our indoor studio due to the weather this year! 

19 Bergstrasse Altenkirchen 66903

*Plan to arrive 15 min prior to your session time.
This allows for time to get the children out of the car, fix any loose hair bows and straighten bow ties and get dressed if using our studio wardrobe.

14d8cbbb3c70d495f0992b41bb4e5732--nursery-colours-bedroom-colours.jpg

My set this year is indoors, and  will be an all white background and flooring with simple spring decor with a European "Ostern" flair.  You will just have to trust me on this one! But you can see some images of past spring sessions and how fun they are! 

Girls : Dresses are best for this set. I encourage pastel colors, whites, creams, and beige. 
Barefoot is perfect for this session. so no need to run out and try to find the perfect shoes. =)  
Don't Wear:
Any dresses that are vibrant in color ( hot pinks, teal,  bright hot yellows, oranges) have black in it or other very dark colors. Sweaters should be also be light in color if wearing one. ( no black or royal blue and other dark colors) NO TIGHTS - Barefoot please

I have a ton of various girls dresses in all sizes in this style. If you would like to use one of mine, just let me know! 

If you have ANY questions you are always welcome to message me .
Send me an iphone pic of what you are planning and we can plan it together!

Boys : Suggested Button down shirts ( No Polo shirts or printed T shirts please) for a classic timeless look. Light colors, creams, whites etc. ( a plane white t shirt is also fun!)
I have available in all sizes - Light blue checked and Light green checkered button down shirts if you would like to use them - let me know! I also have a peter rabbit pattern bow tie! 
Khaki pants, Suit pants, are great! I am not really a fan of jeans for this session , but lighter ones are best! Try not to have a dark suit or black suit.

During your session 

Do you have any doubts or concerns that your little one may not be quite ready to jump into things so quickly? Don't worry! YES, your session is 20 minutes.That might sound to short for a fussy baby or timid toddler, I just want you to relax. =0) I LOVE children and am great with them! I take my time, and let them be who they are! There will be enough time. We will get the shot! 
I guide the entire session in a way they don't really know they are being photgraphed. We play games, and of course we have our bunnies, and if that's not enough there is always CANDY! LOL

I typically ask mom and dad  sometimes to walk a bit away from the set to encourage eye connection with me.  So don't be offended if i have you move away for a minute or two! And while they are just so adorable and all dressed up it can be easy to want to take a few snap shots with your phone. Please refrain from taking photos with your mobile phone during their session time as to not distract them from looking my way and feeling the pressure of performing. I love to connect and get genuine connections and this will help me to get that.   =) Thank you!!

Your Check List

My Session Check List: for younger ones

*Feed kiddos a little snack before you arrive. 
*For little ones it might help to bring a favorite toy that I could use during the session to help gain their attention. 
*Bring hair brush/comb in case it's a little windy (Crazy German weather)
*For babies -  bring bottle, pacifier to the session
* Check kiddos nails and take off old nail polish. No nail polish is best for a session.
* We have a restroom!
* Remind the children that we need to be gentle with the set and props and it's for imagination =) 
* Bunnies- Please be sure to let us know prior if your children have allergies or are afraid of bunnies. I want to make sure they are absolutely comfortable at their debut! 

My Session Check List : for big kiddos

* Remember to bring hair brush/comb in case of wind
* Check kiddos nails and take off old nail polish. No nail polish is best for a session.
* We have a restroom!
* Bunnies- Please be sure to let us know prior if your children have allergies or are afraid of bunnies. I want to make sure they are absolutely comfortable at their debut! 

And Finally the last one....

* Relax! Cause it's going to go great! =) I love to let the kids be themselves and sometimes that can take a few extra minutes for them to warm up to the camera lady! =)  I know we are limiting ourselves to a time frame this time for a "mini" session , but don't let that make you feel stressed.  So, if you feel that they aren't listening, or they aren't looking, or posing, I just want you to know i have seen it all and I a not worried one bit! =) So never feel bad if you think it's not going well.  We will make some great memories!


The family takes their cue from mama! =) And if mama is stressed everyone is. =)

Are you ready? 

Let's do this. Together!
