WHEN SHOULD I CONTACT YOU TO HOLD A SPOT?
As soon as possible! I can never guarantee a slot when we are booked, in short, my studio only books 5-8 sessions a month. Booking such low volume gives me the time I need to be able to give my clients 100% of my attention, there is so much more than just taking beautiful portraits that go into the business. I typically recommend to book your maternity and newborn when you are in your second trimester.
MY BABY IS ALREADY A FEW WEEKS/MONTHS OLD, CAN WE STILL DO A NEWBORN SESSION?
Yes! We take baby’s of all ages. However, once they are over the 21 day mark they will be less curly and like their legs straight, be less sleepy, more sensitive to touch, so we most likely will not get the same poses you see here on our website. We will however get you some gorgeous images that you’ll cherish forever. Once they hit the two month mark we advise not coming until they’re 4 months so we can get some smiles and other milestones.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Just show up! At my studio we provide everything you need, we have organic baby diapers, organic wipes, drinks, snacks, boppy pillow, and a comfy couch for you to rest on! An added bonus since my studio is located on our property, we have a mini farm for your kids to enjoy!
The only thing you will ever bring is something that you would like photographed with baby (which we will discuss in the pre-consultation). I provide maternity gowns, all newborn props, and sitter-one year clothing!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSION?
After your session I will go through and hand edit the very best of the best images! We show anywhere from 25-35 images with newborn, 25-35 with normal baby milestones, and 35+ with family, seniors, and cake smashes! We will reveal your images in a sweet slideshow, go through your images, and together decide on something perfect for your home and your budget! We will decide what wall art and so much more!
WHY SHOULD I ORDER PRINTS AND PRODUCTS FROM YOU AND NOT FROM WALMART, COSTCO OR SHUTTERFLY?
I use the top and most world renowned print labs in the U.S. The color and quality of the products will match your photo exactly how it was taken and will hold up over time and for generations of your family to see. Digital photos will end up in a desk and never looked at, while having a nice piece of wall art for years to enjoy in your home will bring you happiness as you watch your children grow. Plus, we will do all the work for you! How many times have you said “I’ll get to ordering that next week” and then never do? We are a full service photography studio and will edit, design, crop to ratio appropriately (i.e. 8×10), order, package and deliver everything to you! We also know that this is a digital age and offer the corresponding digital for each product you decide to purchase for sharing on social media platforms.
