What's in my camera bag | Richmond Hill Photographer

Typically in Spring and Fall I travel for outdoor maternity sessions. My customer’s are always surprised about all the nifty things I have on hand for our session.

Here are just a few things I take along with me to a maternity photo session or a baby moon session (what is that you ask? Coming next week on my blog stay tuned).

I have a nice variety of bags to carry with me. I choose to buy The House of Flynn, because I love their designs, quality and I think the owner of the company is a really sweet should with a giant heart for others. These gorgeous bags keep my gear safe. Speaking of gear.

I carry my favorite Nikon camera and a 35mm lens along with a 105mm macro lens. I love to use my macro lens for portraits and I always get very creative with this lens, too. If I find time for my creative shot during a session I leave with a happy heart. here is an example:

I always have some safety pins and a heavy duty spring clamp handy in case we have to adjust the maternity dress we use during our beach maternity session at Tybee. Tapes to go keep the dress in place on a windy beach day. Breast pedal pads are a must have for my camera bag as well, because you just never know :). I also always have a luggy with me, for my beautiful crowns and dresses, etc. More about my sweet luggy in a different post though (I can tell you this much about it: EVERYBODY loves it!)

Limited Edition Fall Family Portraits in Richmond Hill Georgia

Each year during Fall I offer limited edition Fall Family photos in Richmond Hill, Georgia. My existing customers always receive the announcements first. These sessions only happen one time per year, and I take them in Fall once it cools down a bit and we have these gorgeous sunsets.

I announce Fall Family photos early in August, and they book super fast. I only offer a handful of dates and my clients always take advantage of this deal. If you want to join my waiting list, please let me know, and I'll make sure you won't miss this chance to snatch up a session.

After a few family pictures in my favorite field location in Richmond Hill, Georgia we move on taking mommy\ child pictures and daddy\ child photos. Usually, this is snuggle and play time, and everybody loves this part of the session.

I like to keep the session sweet and short since littles have a very short attention span. After my customers book their portrait session, they receive a session guide (online) to prepare for their photo session. I make outfit recommendations in this guide and share tips on what to bring to make this session easy for their children.

I take these images in my favorite field location in Richmond Hill, and every spot is in walking distance. It makes it super easy for the whole family.

Pretty Maternity Photography Richmond Hill Georgia

This pretty momma came back all the way from Alabama to take her maternity images with me. She told me, that she had never taken any maternity photos, but knew, that this was her last chance to take them, being pregnant with her third child.

We planned this session over the phone and it came out so perfectly. We started with studio portraits and finished up in the bath tub full of flowers and a milk bath.

I turn on a candle warmer during the milk bath part and many customers told me, that they feel like they’re in a spa. I want this experience to be as special as possible for my customers to remember this time for a lifetime.

Timeless Newborn Photography Session in Richmond Hill Georgia

My daughter was born eight years ago and we took pictures in the hospital. I put her in this bright pink Hello Kitty romper and thought she was the cutest little thing in the world. I had my son wear a bright teal colored fleece pullover for the sibling part of the session. I had no-one tell me, that those are some real bright colors to use for newborn pictures, no-one told me that it takes the focus away from my beautiful children. I wish I had someone help me, because I was at a total loss picking out outfits. Don’t get me wrong, I love the images, because they’re my kids, but if I could do it over, I would absolutely keep everything simple in color - timeless. And first and foremost I would seek for advice to style the session perfectly. I love offering this service to my customers.

Let’s talk props for newborn sessions at my Richmond Hill, Georgia studio. I am having so much fun selecting them and I get asked all of the time, where I buy props, wraps and wardrobe for my session. I want my clients to love their images now and in 20 years from now. I have a fine selection of bowls, wraps and backdrops in my studio. Everything is neutral colored. I rather play with textures, than with colors.

I carefully select my props from vendors from all over the World. I have bowls from Lithuania and Hungary, wraps from Italy, mobiles from the Ukraine, bean bag stand from Brazil and my bean bag is from the Netherlands, just to mention a few.

I find a lot of specialty props in photography groups but believe it or not, Amazon and Etsy have been my best friends. Most of my baby wardrobe comes from there. Once the session is booked, I even share with my customers, where I buy all the pretty studio things.
