WELCOME TO PARENTHOOD!
I want you to feel beautiful and comfortable while I capture this powerful and amazing time in your life, that is why I shoot maternity and newborn sessions in your own home. I am a natural light lifestyle photographer, it’s my goal to capture your emotions and connection so that you can remember these fleeting moments for a lifetime and pass them to future generations. I will work in some posed shots, but for the most part my focus is to capture your story – the tenderness between mother and baby, the joy of a growing family, and all of the precious details. I believe all family members experience an amazing bond with their new baby, so I would love to photograph all immediate family members during Maternity & Newborn Sessions – dad, siblings, and pets.
The CBK Experience
From the first moment you see, hold and smell your newborn child – your world will change. Love will become something bigger than you ever knew was possible. Your wedding day will be a memory past – THIS will become the most important day of your life. After one week, after three weeks, after six months – they grow, change and develop and nothing that we can do will stop them. Trust me, you will be in a haze of survival mode during the first few weeks of your newborn’s life. Having beautiful photos of this chapter will preserve your memories of just how tiny and precious your new baby is for generations to come.
BEFORE THE SESSION
I know how stressful it can be to coordinate photos—there are outfits to choose, schedules to coordinate, and so many expectations to live up to, right? Take a deep breath, because I’m here to help! Get in touch so that we can create a custom session that will best reflect your story at this moment in your life.
Once you have chosen which collection will best meet your needs, and we book your session date (based on your due date, we’ll adjust later), I will send you my style and preparation tips. You will also receive my digital Baby Inspiration Guide to help you with ideas for incorporating your finished images into your home as artwork (wall art, albums, and other printed keepsakes). Your homework is to choose your outfits, send me photos of any walls in your home you may want to decorate with art, relax, and get in touch after your sweet baby makes his/her arrival!
DURING THE SESSION
I will capture the uniqueness of your newborn individually, as well as mom and dad’s (and any siblings’) candid interactions with your newest family member. I will not pose your baby in any unnatural positions or bring any props. I am happy to incorporate special items or outfits that you have in your home. I believe capturing your newborn with items that have meaning to you will result in images that will be cherished far more than anything I could provide.
AFTER THE SESSION
I’ll post a few Social Media Sneak peeks the week after your session, and within about one month you will receive your online gallery! Along with your gallery, I will send you your customized wall art design suggestions. You will actually be able to see exactly how these designs will look on your walls (that’s what those photos you sent me were for)! You’ll get your image files as a download through your online gallery, and if you’ve chosen to add an album, we’ll get to work on the design. Most clients have an album in their hands within three to four months.
