Happy FriYAY! I hope you are having a wonderful day! Any fun plans for the weekend? I have a packed weekend full of family, friends, sessions, biz stuff, just a bunch of fun and staying busy!!
It is FAQ Friday! Yay!
Today’s Question: What Should I Bring to My Session?
First Off, You Don’t Need to Bring Anything!
Just your wonderful selves! I am 100% happy if you show up at your session with not one extra thing! This is how most of my session go and I love them to bits!
But! If you feel like you want some ideas to switch things up a bit, here is some food for thought!
A blanket is a nice addition, especially if we do some shots sitting on the ground! It adds a little something extra and can be a fun way to incorporate something special from your home into the session!
Beach toys can be such a fun way to get some cute photos interacting with each other! This sweet family also brought bubbles which was awesome and made for some super adorable pics! Also, if you have kiddos that don’t love photos, bringing something for you all to play with can be a perfect compromise while still getting great family photos!
Hats can really switch up your look or add a little extra variety to your session without much effort or completely changing outfits! They look so cute on, on your kiddo, held to your side, so many options! I love a good hat!
Cardigan, Wrap, Jean Jacket, etc.
These are another perfect way to switch up your look easily and quickly! (or your Hubby’s, kiddos’, anyone!) You could even bring a couple different options for fast changes!
A Second Outfit!
You are totally welcomed to bring a complete change of clothes! Although, I would limit this to full sessions so you don’t take up too much of your mini session time!
Pets are family too! You are always welcomed to bring them along! Let’s just chat about it ahead of time so we can make sure that your location is pet friendly!
A messy snacking session is soooo much fun!! And it doesn’t have to be limited to cake smash sessions!! I have loved the popsicle sessions this year! Watermelon is adorable, I have seen strawberries, we did a milk bath with this cutie pie and we added Fruit Loops! The possibilities are endless!
I feel like fresh flowers can add such a beautiful, natural element to your photos! They are always a nice option! Flower crowns can also be fun for maternity or cake smash sessions!!
This is mostly for at-home family and newborn sessions but can be such a sweet personal touch to add! When I was little I had a stuffed cat named Poose (after our kitty Poose hehe) and I would take her EVERYWHERE with me! Even on vacations! (Just ask my cousins hahaha)
Okidoki Smokie Artichokie!
That’s all I have for ya right now! I hope these gave you a few fun ideas if you wanted to bring something to your session!
Let me know what you would bring (If anything at all!) in the comments!!
