All parents should dress lightly for the newborn experience because it is necessary to keep the studio very warm for the comfort of the newborn while they are undressed. It is also highly recommended that mom and dad bring a set of changing clothes with them as accidents are unavoidable. If you book a Mini Simplicity for your baby, please try to bring them in with full tummies as the session is 45 minutes.
