Tips and advice for the six-month session from our Kansas City baby photographers:
This is a wonderful session! Your baby must be sitting up without assistance! Again, practicing at home a couple of weeks before your session makes a big difference! What we are looking for is for your baby to be sitting up nice and strong with their back straight and without toppling over.
Don’t be fooled by what we call a “tripod” position. Your baby will be sitting but leaning forward. That is not what we are looking for. Trust us—you will spend more time trying to “catch” your baby and no time photographing. We will only send you home if the baby is not sitting up strong. Again this is very important for the safety of your child. It’s better to call us first so you don’t waste your time.
We will be doing our famous “naked” shots at this time. You can also bring a clothing selection. We also suggest a special blanket and again a silver rattle or cup. Please let us know if you have brought these things with you. We also have a wonderful supply of blankets for you to use at this session. Remember to keep your clothing selection SIMPLE! White, denim and pastels work best, as we want your baby, not the clothes, to stand out in the portrait. This is the best time to consider having a family portrait, mother and child, or a formal Christening Portrait done. When we reserve your 6 month session, just let us know if you want to do something like this.
