Frequently Asked Questions?
What Should we wear?
I always say wear what you are comfortable in. Don't wear a dress if you normally don't wear them, if you are uncomfortable it will show in your pictures. Have Fun with bright colors, the key is to coordinate not match! As for kids and baby sessions most kids will allow about 3 outfit changes. Layers, layers, layers! Put a cute Jacket over the outfit and then take it off for a different look. And you can never go wrong accessories! Check out Pinterest for outfit ideas.
What do you have for props?
The easiest answer is what we don't have. We have hats ranging in size newborn to 6 month. Lots of hairclips and headbands. Ties, bowties, tutus, rompers. We have chairs, chairs, and more chairs! Couches, frames chalkboards, truck, airplane, blocks, teddy bears, teacups, baskets and buckets too. Outdoor setups too! Red Barn is always on the search for new and fun props.
Do we just shoot at the studio?
Nope we love going to other places beside the studio. MSU, local parks, Old Town Lansing, maybe you have a great place you know of. If you have a place in mind let us know! We love to find new and exciting places to shoot! We will travel in the Lansing area, anything outside of that area travel fees will apply.
How Far in advance do you book?
We try to keep the books no more than 3 months in advance for booking. So yes you need to contact us 3 months prior to when you would like a appointment. For newborns we take only a certain amount a month. So YOU MUST get on our reserved list. This guarantees you an appointment when your baby is born. You may get on the Newborn List as soon as you like. Please don't wait I hate telling a soon to be mommy that the list is full.
