Newborn & Baby Plan Guide.


  There's no more important and life-changing milestone than the birth of your child.  Capture the fleeting season from birth to toddlerhood, turning ephemeral moments into enduring art.  I offer newborn photography in the first two weeks of life, a Baby Plan that includes three sessions in the first 18 months, and Maternity sessions as add-ons to either a single Newborn session or Baby Plan.

The Process.
 
BOOKING


Newborn sessions are offered within the first 14 days of baby's life.

For Newborn sessions, it is vital that we meet and plan well before baby is due.

Because I book several months in advance,
I am unlikely to be able to slip in a "last minute" newborn session.

We'll begin with a brief in-person meeting to discuss the overall vision and goals
for your project, and preview portrait product options.
We'll discuss details such as time, date, and location and take care of booking details.

Once you're comfortable and ready to move forward, the initial fee is due to hold your dates.


WARDROBE & PREPARATION


Newborn sessions include use of props, wraps, baskets, blankets, buckets, etc. to pose the baby.
Adults and other participants should come dressed ready to parttake in photos.
It is strongly suggested to wear either a black or dark-colored tutleneck for part of our work.


THE SHOOT


We'll meet again the day of your session, typically for 2 - 3 hours,
leaving time for feedings, diaper changes, and snuggle time.

For in-home Newborn sessions, we may need a bit of extra time to scout and stage a shooting space.

Newborn sessions all take place in late morning / early afternoon.


VIEWING & SELECTION


About a week following our session, we'll meet again in person.
I'll show you 25-40 soft proofed portraits for selection.
You'll love ALL of portraits, but don't worry,
I'll guide you create a cohesive collection that meets your individual needs.


FULL ARTISTRY


Once a portrait is selected, I hand edit every portrait, never abdicating this critical step!
This is my favorite part of my work as it is when I bring a portrait to life.


PORTRAIT PRODUCTION

With the purchases of any canvas, you are invited to
view and approve your canvas before putting into production.

Once in production, the several artisans collaborate in creating your finished piece.
It travels from Tennessee, to Florida, to Seattle, and back to me for approval in between, then finally into your hands.

Most items, including finished wall portraits, albums, and silver box sets
take 4-6 weeks for final delivery.


DELIVERY & INSTALLATION


Framed portraits include white glove hand-delivery and installation
in Southeast Michigan with a lifetime craftsmanship guarantee.

If no wall portrait is purchased, collections are available for pick up at no cost.
Shipment is available for an additional fee.
