I am doing a studio session. Anything I need to know? • Yes, the most important thing is to bring your smile! But don’t wear any green or blue. S.M.C. uses a “green” screen that enables us to put you in front of any image. Paris? Sure! Roman hills ? Sure! However, if you wear green or blue, the software will not function properly. It is typically best to wear solid colors. If there is more than one person, coordinate clothing choices. Not saying you have to match, but you do not want to clash, either… In addition, you can always bring changes of clothes! • If you are doing a baby or a little one’s session, feel free to bring special blankets, toys, hats, booties, or anything else you would like to incorporate into the session. Newborn clothes do tend to fit loosely and can be easily bunched and unkempt, so diapers and nude shots are usually preferred. Newborn babies tend to be sleepier during the first two weeks, and the younger they are, the better they will sleep during their session. Feeding your baby just prior to your session will also help ensure a sleepy baby. Even if you were not planning to be photographed, wear black, preferably long sleeves for a few shots.

What type of payment does S.M.C. Photography Accept? • We accept credit cards, cash, and checks made payable to “Sara Miller.” I'm doing a Maternity Session. What should I wear or bring to the session? (These are suggestions, not requirements...)
Avoiding anything too tight or restrictive, this will prevent dents or marks on your skin, especially when doing "bare belly" shots
Panel-free pants or jeans
Black pants. Many of the darker poses that fade into shadows work best with black pants
A fitted, non-maternity top. The goal is to have something that hugs your shoulders and breasts, but is a little too short to cover your belly
Your pre-pregnancy jeans
Lingerie tips: flesh toned strapless bra and panties to use with sheer fabrics. Works great for "implied nudity" but allow you to feel comfortable during the shoot. Black panties, because a little sliver of them may be visible with unzipped pre-pregnancy jeans. A smooth bra and panties without bows or lace details. These items can be useful for a silhouetted images (where you see just shaped against a bright background). Any other pretty lingerie you specifically want to be photographed in.
Lacy or sheer lightweight robe
A long pretty silk scarf that can be draped over your breasts and behind your back
A button down shirt (your own, or the father's).
Other tops that can be unbuttoned to reveal your belly, short enough to show your belly, or fitted to showcase the shape of your belly
Black. If you are self conscious about excess weight, and would like to do a shadowy pose where it is difficult to tell your body ends or and the shadows begin, definitely bring black clothing. This can include black panel free pants, a black tank top, black button shirt, etc.
Sport bra or tank top (We can clip the top in the back to expose your belly).
Special sentimental jewelry.
Baby booties, or stuffed toy you have purchased for the baby.
A print of your ultrasound
Keep in mind that your hands may be prominent in some of these poses. You might want to groom your nails. Natural looking nails, pale colors, a french manicure photograph better than dark nail polish colors.
You can also include your children and the father as well in the photo shoot. If you do, you might want to consider coordinating your clothing with the father's and the children's clothing.
