This is your portrait session! I am a firm believer that you are paying me to serve you and I want you to get out of it what you envision. That means taking the time to listen to your likes and desires for your photos. The session questionnaire will help me plan your session including colors, themes, and your style.
During your studio session, make yourself at home! Fresh coffee, soft drinks, water, and snacks await you while you rest in one of the two sitting areas. You are more than welcome to watch the session or kick back and relax. We've got you covered!
Safety is my biggest concern for the session. For this reason, I hire an assistant for every newborn session. My trained assistants know their #1 job is to stay close. Babies should not be left to support their own joints or airway. I would rather edit out my assistant's arm than risk your baby's safety. I also take many precautions to make every pose comfortable and secure, including using weights and supports.
My staff and I also stay up to date on vaccinations. I don't want you to have any worries when handing off your baby to us!
I have listened to your feedback and know how important digital files are to you. I feel the same way! We want photos we can print anytime we want, even if it's 10 years from now. We want access to baby photos when our kids graduate and get married. I get it! That's why I offer packages that include digital downloads with a print release!
But, I would also love for you to hang your beautiful images on the walls of your home and share prints with loved ones. And you deserve quality prints that will hold up over time. All purchased digital images come with an online gallery with access to a professional lab. It's the same lab I use for all of the prints that hang in my home and studio!
For clients who prefer their images in print form, I also offer several product collections that include popular print sizes, albums, and heirloom products. The best part is you get a discount on additional a la carte products when your purchase a print collection!
There is a package to fit everyone's needs! To book your portrait session, a signed contract and session fee are required. Your session fee covers the time and talent of the photographer and staff, as well as full use of the studio and props. The session fee does not cover any digital images, prints, or products.
The early years go by so fast,. I know you have heard every parent say it! No matter how hard we try, those memories inevitably fade. When we capture those milestones through photography we are aren't just holding onto the memories, we are saving the DETAILS of those memories. I know because my own memories have failed me. If it weren't for photographs, there are so many things about my own children that I know I would have a hard time remembering. I urge you to not let these days pass you by before you get the chance to savor the moment and hold on to the memory.
