The parents that visit my studio before their session are busy people. Mom is usually the one initiating the photo sessions and visiting the studio for a consultation, to learn about what I offer and what I can offer to my clients. This is an important step. I'm going to possibly be capturing such special moments in your life; so most of my clients want to meet me before our session to make sure we 'click', that we 'vibe' that we will see each other's visions and be able to create something beautiful together.
I can say this - the parents that chose me to photograph both their maternity sessions and their newborn sessions are like family by the end of their sessions; we've spent quite a bit of time together by then, we've had many discussions and many laughs have been shared, too.
Once clients and I meet at the studio, then work together, there's a relationship that builds and a comfort level that is reached and we're able to connect on a deeper level. For photography, this is a vital step. Yes, knowing your camera is important, knowing your lighting, posing, editing, being able to think on your feet, etc...it's all important however, knowing your clients and getting them to let their guard down in front of your camera is of utmost importance.
Styling a session, talking with clients, getting a feel for how you can best suit their needs, it's all part of creating a great outcome; which for me are happy valued clients that are madly in love with the images we create for their photo albums, for the canvases they decide to have proudly hung on the walls of their homes.
This mom was SO busy leading up to her session, we squeezed her in last minute for a maternity session, that ended up having to be postponed because of bad weather. She brought this gown with her and I couldn't wait to use it for when she had the baby, too. We worked it in for both maternity and newborn. She and Dad had a lot to choose from when they sat down to view their images at their reveal appointment.
I love seeing the look on family's faces when they get to see those cute snuggly pictures of their baby from their newborn photo session.
These precious little ones grow a little bit each day, so within a few weeks, they've made so many changes, but mom and dad will have these images to cherish forever now.

Where did the name Millie Dee come from? It's my 2 nicknames, my maiden name is Miller, so some friends call me Millie and some call me Dee instead of Denise, so I jammed them together and made Millie Dee...
