Thank you for inquiring! I know you will have lots of questions regarding your newborn session. My goal is to make your experience fun and relaxing. We will start by having a pre-consultation meeting to go over the details of the session and what to expect. Once you have booked your session, you will receive additional information with helpful tips on how to prepare and what to expect. A typical session will last between 2-3 hours depending on how sleepy the baby is, and to give plenty of time for snuggling, feeding, and comforting. Your newborn session should preferably be scheduled between 5-12 days old to get those sweet, curled up newborn poses. This time goes by so quickly, and it is a once in a lifetime chance to capture them when they are this little for that cherished heirloom.
Milestone sessions are perfect for capturing those first year milestones. We suggest a 6 -7 month old session, booked once baby is sitting up by himself. They will have changed so much by this point, with the huge smiles and their first teeth showing up! Babies this age are full of giggles and love to pay peek-a-boo! Then, most clients want to come back at 1 year old to capture their first standing or walking pictures, along with the cake smash session! These are so fun to see their expressions as they dive into their first cake! Many return for an 18 month session, which often is done outdoors, to capture the moment when they suddenly are looking like a little boy or girl, rather than the little baby you once knew! You may choose any of these sessions individually, or you can choose our popular watch me grow package which includes your newborn, 6/7 month sitting up, and 1 year cake smash session retainer fees! This package is an affordable way to have professional portraits to document these important milestones.
The first few years of your babies life are ever changing, and being able to document these milestones with professional photography will be something you can enjoy in your home and hand down for generations. No one ever says they wish they wouldn’t have had professional photographs taken of their baby, but many people say they wish they had professional photographs taken of their little one while they had the chance. Time flies by and use this time to capture those special moments!
Children, Family and Maternity Sessions:
Besides newborn sessions, I love taking heirloom quality portraits of children. I love taking individual portraits showing each child’s serious expressions as well as their joyful smiles. Sibling photos are taken as well, which show the close bond of the children. These are taken outdoors, with an option of park/urban or field locations within 20 miles of New Albany, Ohio. I have suggestions that offer a variety of looks and you are welcome to change outfits if you wish. These sessions last approximately 1 1/2-2 hours and are taken approximately 2 hours before sunset. I also offer outdoor family and maternity sessions as well.
