His work is exceptional. Thank you Jared Wolfe. The photoshoot was great and beyond my expectations. I received so many great compliments about the photos.
I had a wonderful experience with Jared. He was so patient and professional. He was so good at giving me the directions as well. I’ve got so many compliments already. Can’t wait to go back!
Jared was awesome! He was very flexible with his time and patient with his photography. We took maternity photos and they are amazing and I look forward to working with him in the very near future.
At about 6 months your baby will be grabbing for toys, laughing, responding to their name and even sitting up! This is a great age and one of my favorite to photograph. If your baby is not yet sitting up, wait a few weeks until that is possible. Between 6-12 months is the best time-frame to bring your baby in to photograph. They will be interactive, attentive and not quite mobile enough to cause too much trouble.
Pick a special outfit for your baby's first photo shoot. You might want to bring a couple of options in case one doesn't fit well. Focus on outfits with special meaning and with colors that match your home decor. Is your home filled with cooler colors like blues and greens? or warmer neutral colors like beige. Having colors that match your home decor will really help them fit in your home naturally.
If you have a special blanket, toy or family heirloom, pack them too. Maybe you have a silver rattle or other keepsake from when you were a baby. Plain but textured blankets work great in photos, either in muted or bright colors, but avoid busy patterns if you can.
You know your babies schedule. Try to bring them after a nap or feeding when they are most likely to be happy and playful. My baby sessions are typically Sunday mornings between 8 and 11.
Although most parents are constantly photographing their baby with camera phones having professional photos can be an amazing addition to remembering these precious moments.
