My absolute favorite portraits to do are those of newborn babies. There is just something so pure and innocent about them and it only lasts for such a short period of time and that to me it is the most important memory to capture.
Most people wonder when to take newborn photos, the best age is between 7 and 20 days of age while they still retain the curled posture and are very sleepy. This allows for creative posing and some of the most beautiful portraits.
-custom/personalized set ups with my ever growing collection of props and backdrops
-posed shots as well as a room set up for more lifestyle type photos all within my studio
-hair and make up for mom with collections or as add on to any package
-use of client closet of newborn outfits/headbands/gowns for mom and outfits for older siblings
-photographers time and talent as well as extensive knowledge of newborn safety
-calm, soothing studio
-sitting room for older siblings with snacks and tv and for nursing mom's comfort and privacy
-extensive photoshop knowledge which helps safely pose babies and composite shots into beautiful works of art
-no time limits on session so you never feel rushed but my years of practice means I have a workflow that makes the average newborn session about 2 hours
When you are ready to book or want to know more, head on over the contact form and fill it out. Once I receive it, I will reach out to you and find out a best way to communicate. My favorite to start is either a phone call or a Zoom/Facetime to chat about you, I really want to get to know you and what made you reach out to me. I want to make sure that you get to know me and feel comfortable with me. We will discuss your vision for the session and how you would like to be photographed. Then we can go over my packages or how to customize one for you. I offer digital only packages as well as collections with carefully curated heirloom products such as albums, wall art and prints. Only the best products for my clients.
Once we had the chance to chat and you know that I am the right photographer for you, we will discuss a date and time for your session. That date will be secured for you with a deposit. I usually only do one session per day, two tops so you will never feel rushed. Along with the deposit, you will sign a contract and I will send you a questionnaire to get more details, we will communicate further about the set ups, outfits and how to prepare for you session.
You will choose a package and we will discuss when payment is due and if you are booking months in advance, you can do a payment plan as well. Payment plans are available after the session but images are not released until paid in full.
Booking your session
This is your day, the day to feel like a million bucks. For your maternity session, the focus will be on you and the queen you are.
I want you to feel amazing and not be nervous at all, we will have fun and with my extensive posing and editing knowledge you know you will look your best.
I do recommend having your hair and make up done for the session, I want this to be an experience and for you to feel pampered. I offer in studio make up and hair by amazing artists or you can always come already prepared if you have your own HMUA.
For maternity we will mostly focus on you and showing off that amazing bump, of course significant others/spouses are welcome as well as your children.
For newborn the focus will be mainly on the baby, again, family and older siblings are always welcome and encouraged.
For motherhood session, the connection with you and your kids will be captured and I will help you style everyone.
Within 2 weeks of your session, you will receive a proof gallery to choose your images, you can choose the images that come with the package or you can always choose more and add on individual images or upgrade your package all together.
Once your images are chosen, your payment will be due. Once payment is made, I will finish fully editing the images for you within 3 weeks.
If you opted for digital only package, I will deliver your images via online gallery for download along with print release and you will be able to print them at your own leisure. When ordering products, see next step.
Choosing your images
This is where the real art begins. Making sure your kids have physical heirlooms to look back on that will last for generations to come.
It is a fact that a child's self esteem is raised by seeing themselves in portraits either on your walls or in albums.
I know we get busy with life and creating albums or ordering wall can be overwhelming so leave it up to the pro, I have curated the best products that are archival and I will create the album layout for you, have you approve the design and send it off to be printed. Same with wall art.
These are quality, handmade items so they take up to 4 weeks to be delivered, at which time, I will contact you to figure pick up/delivery.
