I will never forget our 1st outing with our 1st born to the Pediatrician. It was funny! He was born in the winter, so we started extra early since there was snow on the ground. I was trying to pull my self together and my amazing husband was putting our son in the car seat. I came out and the over the shoulder car seat straps were under baby’s arms. In my tired state I am surprised I even noticed, but wow, what rookies we were! The pediatrician would not have been impressed!

When preparing for your newborn session, I want to make it as easy as possible for you! You have a lot going on, I know. So here is a simple list of what to bring to a newborn session.

Most likely this will be one of your 1st outings with your baby.  So pack up your regular diaper bag gear:

-more diapers and wipes than you think you would ever need

-a pacifier if you use one

-change of clothes for you and baby

-changing pad, hand sanitizer, hat for baby, rash cream, breast pads if you are nursing, sling or wrap if you use one, emergency info, snacks and water

And what to bring specially for your newborn session:

-any special hats or blankets you may want photographed

-simple, neutral, plain colored tops for you and your spouse to wear, and a backup top in case one gets dirty.

I will provide the rest! I like to keep it simple and focus on the baby, and the connection between you all, so there will not be a ton of props here. Here is a link to my Styles Pinterest Board, www.pinterest.com/katieprw/stylephoto-sessions/

Mom and Dad had it all planned out, they got the adorable cake at Sugar Mama’s Bakery, and it was her actual 1st birthday! They brought the balloons and the two cute outfits. It was forcasted to rain but we decided to do an early morning session, since that was the best day of time for everyone. We met at a beautiful park in downtown Flagstaff and she was a trooper! And getting some teeth is at the same time! We finished up just as it started raining.

Her parents are the sweetest. Her dad may be one of the proudest parents I have met, and I loved watching him capture a photo of her every day of her 1st year of life through Facebook. You can see her newborn session here!

Thank you for allowing me to capture you family at this special time in your lives! Here are a few favorites…
