Thank you for your interest in our baby plan! We love to photograph babies just as they are—not over-posing them, instead in a natural position. You can choose whether you prefer a studio session where we take care of everything for you and have great natural light. Or, many families love having us come to their home, feeling they and their baby will feel more comfortable. The images will have a more photojournalistic feel…and it’s so nice to capture their first home and nursery.
We love not only photographing beautiful, clean photos of your baby alone, but showing the connections between them and their new family. As new parents, please plan to be in the photos…don’t worry…we work around baby weight and retouch tired moms and dads!
How Does the Baby Plan Work
The idea of doing multiple sessions in your baby’s first year is based on how fast they change in that year.
While families love to have images from each session to enjoy, share and give, the first year is best shown through our year-end products highlighting images from each session.
After each session, you will see an online gallery for a few days and then come into the studio and see the images big on our tv viewing screen. At that meeting, we will use our portrait software to help you narrow down the session to your very favorite images.
You can also touch and hold our products to see what you’d like to do with those favorite images. It can be as simple as digital files and loose prints or we can show you digitally how framing and wall art can look in your space. You’ll order your products from the individual session and also decide if you’d like to do a year-end product, where we pick the images for those products too.
Baby Session Tips
The goal of baby sessions are to make the baby as comfortable as possible, so feel free to take time to feed your baby during the session as needed. If we are coming to you, heat your home as warm as possible.
For each session, plan 1 – 2 outfits. When you look at these images in the future, showing skin really brings you back to holding your baby. A simple or cute diaper cover or a solid blanket drapedover a naked baby make lovely images. Please let us know if you’d like us to bring some of our studio baby blankets.
Neutral colors work well on babies. We want our eye to go to their faces, not their clothes. Avoid clothing with big graphic images or words.
