Children and Baby Information


 

Children do best when they are well rested and fed.   Please select a time that doesn’t interrupt your child’s natural routine.   Schedule your session before or after a nap and after a meal.

In the event of bad weather, sickness (yours or mine), your session may be rescheduled.  If your child is having a bad day or ‘just not into it,’ rather than making going to the photographer a bad experience, we can reschedule.  I want your child to enjoy their session and remember it as positive experience!

While it is awesome to have composed formal portraits of our children, I find that children are natural posers and when encouraged to explore, discover and play while “on the set” is when we are able to capture a kid being a kid.
 
 


Childrens Sessions

We do Individual Child sessions as well as Sibling Sessions, when we work with sibling session we will work with each child to capture an individual session as well as the group images.  As an addition to our individual and sibling sessions,  for a small additional fee,  we offer our Fantasy Sessions.   A child’s imagination is boundless and they love to lose themselves in the magical world of dress up.  We offer several different options to allow them to explore and have fun. (*Fantasy Session available only as an addition to a individual or sibling session)

Baby and MatBaby Prices3eternity

 

 

We specialize i n artistic professional maternity and newborn photography.  Due to the personal nature of pregnancy portraits, maternity sessions are only offered in combination with a session for baby.

For maternity sessions we suggest having the sessions take place approximately 2 months before your due date.  Bellies are usually just the right size for capturing at that time.  We recommend wearing all pre-pregnancy clothing.  Pregnant women are beautiful and we want to show that off.  Bring jeans that will have a snug fit (we will not zip of button them, just fold them down).   Pretty lacy, modern or funky tops like camisoles, tanks, lingerie, sweaters, or a mans shirt can all be used to make beautiful portraits.   Long skirts that will fit below the belly are a nice alternative to jeans.   If you have beautiful scarves or wraps, bring them along as well.   Our goal is to make the session unique to you.

When should you schedule your newborn session?  “I will meet you home from the hosptial.”  Just Kidding!    I prefer to photograph my little subjects around 6 days old. Babies older than two weeks of age tend to sleep less soundly and do not curl up as easily. Newborn acne and colic may flare up at around 2 weeks of age, as well.

It is never too early to book a newborn session. Because your baby’s birth date is unpredictable, we will reserve a time frame for you. If you are given an induction or  c-section date, the actual session date can be  booked in advance. If you are letting baby decide, Stacey will mark your due date and expect a call from you as soon as baby arrives.

How long will a session last?  The session times vary according to each individual newborn, as you know ‘babies run the world’.  It’s not uncommon for the session to last three hours, allowing for plenty of time for feedings and comforting.
