WHAT TO EXPECT

WHY 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. 

A private online gallery is created just for you and all of your final images will be ready to view approximately 2 weeks after your session.   You are welcome to share your gallery with your friends and family and you will have the option to order deluxe prints and products directly from my professional printer.  This is also where you will be able to download all of your included high resolution digital images.   

Because I am just as excited about your images as you are, with your permission, I share something special from your session right away!  I post on both Facebook and Instagram and I'd love for you to join me there.
