Booking a session:
If you are interested in booking a session it is important to schedule as soon as possible. Sessions are to be paid in full to secure your date.
Newborn sessions should be scheduled during your 5th month of your pregnancy. It is important to book prior to baby being born so that we can leave a little room for sudden surprises. Newborns are best photographed within the first 14 days of life. I am more comfortable with them between 6-11 days new.
Where will we take your pictures you ask? I love making each session as unique as possible that is why I will work with you to come up with something that fits you or your family’s lifestyle. I am a on location photographer so I shoot outdoors with natural light. I have a variety of different locations that I like to shoot at, so we should have plenty to choose from. I am also up for any suggestions and ideas you may have.
Newborn sessions take place at my home studio. Cake smash sessions are done in studio unless an outdoor location is requested.
What to wear:
This is my favorite and most important part to your sessions. I believe that it is very important to plan out what you will be wearing. It makes a huge difference in your photos when you have a well-put together wardrobe. I like to suggest coordinating colors rather than matching. Texture, layers and accessories all add great character to an image. (Jackets, scarves, hats, leggings, jewelry, etc.)
I love lots of color and think it photographs well. I know that picking out clothes for a session can be very overwhelming so I have put together a board on Pinterest called What To Wear Guide. Go check it out: http://pinterest.com/celesafelix/what-to-wear-guide/
Scheduling a time:
I love shooting in the evening with the golden light. About 2 hours prior to sunset is the perfect time to schedule. Newborn sessions on the other hand are scheduled in the morning about 9:00.
What to expect after your session:
Once we have completed your session, I will select and hand edit 20-30 images in LR and CS4 and place them in a private online proofing gallery. Your gallery will be available for a 7-day period. All orders must be placed before the gallery expires.
All prints and digital files are sold separate. Sessions do not include products unless noted. There is a $250 minimum order required with each session.
