Sessions generally last 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours.  For all shoots that involve young children, please try to make your appointment at a time when they are the most rested.  Snacks are always a good idea, and with small children we can take breaks as necessary.  Feel free to bring a change of clothes for all shoots.  I always recommend wearing something comfortable and that is ‘you’.  Try to avoid clothing with logos or prints and avoid the entire family all wearing just black or just white.  Check out these links for some great ideas!
