WHAT TO EXPECT


Why at-home lifestyle photography?

You’ve had a baby.  You’ve been through 9-10 months of exhaustion, nausea, 5 trips to the bathroom every night and discomfort like nothing else.  You’ve grown and birthed a human being and now you are waking up every 2 hours to care for him! You’ve been through a lot and you are exhausted! 

You do not need more work!

I don’t want you to have to get all dressed up. I don’t want you to have to pack up all of that baby gear.  I completely understand that you are just getting the hang of nursing and the thought of having to disrupt that new schedule is scary. 

That’s what makes in-home lifestyle photography so perfect.  Your session take place right there in the comfort of your home.  Not only are your images more natural and meaningful, your session is also relaxing and serene.  Your only job is to cuddle and love on that new baby of yours.  And when you need a break, I’ll help swaddle, shush and rock her to sleep.

Day of your session

When I arrive in your home, I’ll take a quick look around to find the best light.  Don’t worry if you don’t have the “perfect” home.  I don’t need much.   In fact, a window, a bare wall and a comfy place to sit (bed, couch, blankets on the floor), work just fine. 

We work around the baby’s schedule, so there is no rush to finish.  Nursing sessions, diaper changes (perhaps an older siblings temper tantrum) – it’s all normal and it’s is all part of the process.  There is no pressure.  I have children, I completely understand they have their own agenda!

Throughout our time together, I will capture a combination of family images and individual images of the baby.  I rarely do any special poses with the baby.  I believe babies are absolutely perfect on their own and they will often “pose” themselves in the best way.   I just follow their lead.

After your session

All of your images are immediately downloaded and backed up and I carefully remove any image that does not meet my quality standards.  The final images are then individually hand edited in both color and black + white.  Blemishes, discoloration, skin imperfections, etc. are all removed or toned down to ensure a natural but beautiful final product. 

Because I know your time is precious, I come back to your home for your in-person gallery reveal and ordering session.  You'll be able to view a beautiful slideshow of all of the best images from your session and you will be able to order your favorite wall art, albums and digital files all at the same time.  I design, order and deliver everything to you - there is no extra work for you and you will walk away with heirloom quality pieces that you will truly be able to enjoy for decades.  

 

Book your session

Booking a session is a super easy process -  all you need to do is fill out the short contact form and I will get back to you right away.  I'm also happy to chat on the phone or meet at your home or coffee shop to get to know you better.  I want this to be the BEST experience for you!

My clients are special and it's important to me to provide premium service.  Due to this I only take a handful of sessions every month and I encourage clients to book their newborn session between 25-35 weeks of pregnancy.
