NEWBORN AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION: WHAT TO EXPECT

C:\Users\manoaj\Downloads\1.jpg

It is hard to find the time and energy to plan and prepare for a photo shoot when you are busy with school, sports and play dates. You don’t have the time to do it all! Because I understand what it is like to be a busy mama, I have dedicated so much of myself to serving you! No matter if you’re a new mom or an experienced mother, life can be hectic! My focus as a St. Petersburg photographer specializing on maternity, newborn and family photography has allowed me to create a stress-free experience for my clients.

I hope you will feel something when you look back on the images from your session. I want you to be able to recall your baby’s laughter and the sweet smell of their newborn. You don’t have to worry about what to wear, or how to prepare your toddler for the session.

I have designed a client experience that allows me to anticipate all you need for your session. This means that I am there to help you every step. I will not leave you with many digital images on your hard drive. If you don’t know how to use your gorgeous images, my work is not done.

Consultation

First, we need to get on a call and chat. You can ask any questions, suggest locations or talk about the studio. We also get to know one another! During our consult, I enjoy hearing about Mamas’ visions for their sessions. It’s much more fun to talk than send emails back and forth! We will then decide which collection you like best or start building your membership. My collections include digital files, and some include my favourite products. 

Wardrobe and Styling

Every AHP session includes a gorgeous, carefully curated selection of dresses for mom. All of these dresses will photograph beautifully, and come in a variety of sizes to suit every body type. I offer wardrobe options to children, and yes, even dads! If you’d rather have your own wardrobe, I can work with you to coordinate everything to make sure you get the best out of your investment.

Your session will include everything you need if you book a milestone session or newborn session. With minimal props required for your newborn session, you can choose from a range of swaddles and bows.

Makeup and Hair

If you’re like me, and don’t want to think about it, I can arrange a hair- and makeup appointment! This is a great option for mamas who want to pamper themselves.

During Your Session

Baby-led, relaxed session for children or babies

Your child will lead every session, no matter if it is an outdoor family session in St. Petersburg, or a newborn session at the studio. Your family’s love and connection is the ultimate goal. With natural poses and prompts, I believe that babies and toddlers can be the ones to create beautiful, timeless images for their families. While perfect smiles are lovely, I believe that genuine engagement is better for young families.

If you are breastfeeding, I will stop and let you feed your baby, or help you with the bottles if they are bottle-fed. Next, I will soothe, rock, wrap, or do whatever else is necessary to keep your baby happy. This is baby-led, and we will always do the best for them.

After your Session

Get your Digital Gallery

After your session, all your edited images will be available in an online gallery. You can view your entire collection in an online gallery. You just need to choose your favorites.

Wall Gallery Designs and Albums Customized

After you have chosen your favorites images, I will help you decide what you should do with them. Beautiful heirloom album, framing and canvas are all available. I can also create custom gallery walls that are customized for your walls. The albums are my favorite, however. A collection of albums with all your favorite memories is so sweet!
