Congratulations on your pregnancy Mama! A baby joining your family is a once in a lifetime event, whether it’s your first, second or fourth child.
Those nine months may feel never-ending, but once your baby is born, you won’t remember a thing about it. The Maternity Session is your way of documenting the time that you carried your little one inside you, with all of their pokes and kicks.
Those pregnancy check-in selfies aren’t doing you any justice. You need a professional’s help. I’ll help you get into flattering poses, focusing on that beautiful round belly while avoiding the areas you don’t want attention on.
A Fresh 48 Session(my favorite!) is a lifestyle session where I photograph your baby and family at the hospital, usually within 48 hours of birth. During my visit in the hospital, I will try to photograph special moments with your new baby alone, baby and parents, and the entire family (siblings meeting). Read more about Fresh 48 Sessions here.
Newborn Sessions are ideally taken within the first 10 days of life. After 10 days would be fine too, but keep in mind that they will likely be sleeping less, and therefore a little bit harder to pose. Newborn Session could take hours; we follow the baby – their needs take priority. If baby needs to eat or be changed, we will stop to take care of the baby.
The session will include some posed pictures and some lifestyle pictures, so you will get different types of images to share and treasure forever. Even if you’re not up for being photographed, we can include just your arms holding the baby, just your hands holding those itty, bitty baby hands, or something else you are comfortable with.
About 2 weeks after each session, I will deliver the promised digital images to you by sending you an online gallery where you can download the images in full resolution. Unlike other photographers, I don’t sell product, and I don’t want to be in the business of selling product. Therefore, I only provide digital images with my sessions. I don’t sell prints. I only want to focus on being behind the camera, and providing images that you want to share. Let’s be honest, most everything we do now is online.
Also, if you book me early enough, I might even be able to throw in a Baby Announcement Session with a pricing special.
