A virtual newborn session cannot be compared to professional studio newborn sessions. In-person newborn sessions require a trained professional (like myself) to be in close contact with your baby anywhere between 3-5 hours and several poses that you see in my portfolio can only be achieved with the proper training and equipment.
However, I promise you that you will love your photos and they will look almost as professional as an in-person photoshoot. The quality of the images will not be as good as with my professional cameras (unless you have a pro camera yourself), but you’ll have my expertise to make sure everything else is as perfect as we can manage from a distance.
Nowadays, most new smartphone devices have wonderful portrait modes and higher resolution cameras than some common point and shoot cameras.
Specific examples of the images we can achieve with these kinds of sessions can be seen here: https://tscher.com/guided-online-newborn-photography/
With the help of video conferencing apps, I will remotely shoot the images for you.
I will walk you every step of the way to prepare and plan for your session, from deciding in which room should you set up, to instructing you on how to pose your baby and yourself.
No need to buy anything (unless you want a cute outfit), you will do this from home, and you don’t need to be photography savvy, all you need to do is get picture ready and follow my easy prep guide.
To ensure that you get the images you’ve dreamed of, the process is broken into 5 parts:
- A 25 min FaceTime or phone consultation to get to know your expectations and to find the best-lighted corners of your home.
- Follow my quick 10 min prep guide.
- 45-60 Virtual photo-shoot through Zoom or FaceTime.
- After the session, I will fully retouch your images.
- You will receive your photos through an online gallery that will allow you to order printed products or download.
PLEASE NOTE: I have over 8 years of experience working with newborns, please do NOT attempt to pose your baby to recreate photos you find online without the advice of a trained professional. The poses that I will teach you will be easy and safe for your baby.
Keep in mind that in-person newborn photos require a lot of time, patience, close contact, and expertise so achieving more complicated poses such as “froggy pose” or “hands-on chin” will not be possible.
Editing represents the full scope of my work as a photographer. After your photoshoot, I will carefully select the best images to professionally edit them to be consistent with the quality of my work as shown in my portfolio.
Editing covers skin imperfections, color correction, removal of distracting objects in the background, and other basic adjustments so that your gallery has a consistent style.
Please note that my regular editing process does not include full retouching such as slimming, composites, tattoo removal, etc. However, I do offer this optional service for an additional fee of $35 per image.
