I have a feeling I’ll be playing catch up on the blog for.ev.er 🙂 The N family came to me as a referral (refer a friend and you get $10 off your next session when your friend pays their deposit and they get 2 extra digital files for their disk!) and I’m so glad. Little fella Soren was six months old!
Seriously, have you seen a sweeter face?! Those brown eyes! So dang CUTE.
Soren was an expert sitter which blew my mind! Mom and Daddy brought his beloved stuffed bear, and we snuck it in a couple shots. I *love* when a family wants to personalize their session with something special to them!
Ahh… love family sessions like this! I can’t wait to get back outside and work in the sunshine again. Old Man Winter, I’ve got a couple weeks left of tolerating these temps in the teens, but you’re going to have to BEAT IT. Anyone want to brave a snowy session once we get back into the 20s?
Q- I’m pregnant! When should I schedule my maternity and/or newborn session with wendy b photos?
A- This is a two-parter 🙂 Any session is booked by emailing me; firstname.lastname@example.org. We will settle on a date and location, and I’ll send you a contract and invoice 🙂
You’ll want to schedule your maternity session ASAP keeping in mind that I book at least six weeks in advance. Maternity photos are best shot after week 32 but before week 38- you’ll be showing pretty well but not yet so huge that the “I’m so done” mantra has been chanted. You are welcome to book your maternity session as soon as you hit your second trimester, but know that we won’t be shooting until you hit 32w.
Newborn photos *MUST* be shot within the first 14 days or so after birth. Since a good lot of us have no idea when our babies will be born, you will want to schedule your newborn session by the time you are 34w. I put you on my calendar for your due date, then I leave dates open the week before and two weeks after for your session. It is of the utmost importance that you let me know as soon as the baby is born, so we can nail down your exact session date. Doing so can help ensure that the whole family can be available to participate, if you’d like. On-site newborn photos often include siblings and both parents so keep that in mind 🙂
If your baby is born prematurely and requires NICU time, we would resume your full session when you’re all home together.
If you want book maternity photos as well as newborn photos, I offer a Baby Bundle package. The package saves you some money and gets you *14* photos included with your session fee. I strongly recommend the Baby Bundle package. You get more shoot time, more photos, more bang for your buck!
I also offer a Fresh 48 add on to any newborn session, for just $100. It includes 30 minutes of hospital shoot time and *all* the best images for direct download. Total number of images will vary.
**I have been recognized nationally by the photography group I Heart Faces and had my work used as inspirational photos in both the newborn and maternity galleries!**
