MY EXPERTISE

I have been a professional photographer since 2007 and have specialized in early childhood photography since 2011. Through the years, my family portrait style has evolved into a series of techniques to make sure everyone cooperates without posing too much. Family portraits to me are all about the emotion, the milestones, the giggles. With me, you’ll receive the best guidance to help make the best out of your session and to bring the images you’ve been hoping for to life.

WHAT TO WEAR FOR A FAMILY SESSION?

When selecting your clothes for your family portrait, keep in mind that we want to create timeless images that focus on the subjects and emotions. With that said, I strongly suggest wearing colors that compliment each other and avoid harsh and distracting patterns and logos(including plaid and striped shirts). Patterns and logos often come as a distraction to what we are trying to capture.

As far as colors, make sure to select something weather appropriate if the season is what inspired you to get a family portrait. Otherwise, I suggest earthy and neutral colors such as light and dark gray, white, rose, pale pink, light blue, earthy brown, nude, etc.

Beach sessions are better if you are not wearing shoes so if your session will take place at the beach keep this in mind.

WHAT IS EDITED AND RETOUCHED ON EACH PHOTO?

While I use my expertise to take the best images possible straight out of my camera, editing is still one of the most time-consuming parts of my job, it can take anywhere from 10 min to 60 min per image.

Fully retouched images are the finished products that represent the full quality of my work and cover the following:

  • Skin imperfections (acne, some wrinkles, uneven skin tones, discolorations, jaundice, rashes, etc.)
  • People and cars in the background (your photos will look as if you were completely alone at the beach with your family)
  • Distracting objects or marks on a background, backdrop, or wall
  • Back, arm, and side fat rolls
  • Double chins
  • Enhanced sky and sunset colors
  • Teeth whitening

HOW TO PREPARE FOR A BEACH PHOTOSHOOT AND WHAT TO EXPECT

Expect to get barefoot, a bit sandy, dip your feet in the water, and to have LOTS of fun!
Here are some important recommendations to help  you get the most of your session:

  1. Kids always do a lot better when well fed and rested so make sure to plan accordingly (bringing a snack for the little ones is always a good idea).
  2. Even on warm days, it can get a little chilly by the end of the session, so make sure to bring warm layers.
  3. A change of clothes for everyone.  I always encourage families to get barefoot and play on the water’s edge. It is a good idea to bring an extra pair of pants for mommy and daddy and an extra set of clothes for the kids.
  4. Bring a towel.  Even if you don’t get wet, beach photos are a lot better if you are barefoot, a towel to clean sandy feet before getting back in the car is ideal.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

The average is one to two weeks to receive your fully edited online gallery, and one additional week to receive your prints. Make sure to book your session at least one month in advance if you need any printed materials by a certain date (especially during holiday season).

Breastfeeding and naked photos will never be used. Besides that, I do not share or sell your photos to anyone.

Back to Index

MY CHILD WON’T STAY STILL, WILL THAT BE A PROBLEM?

It is extremely rare for a child to stay still for a session, I don’t want them to! I like to portray who they are and get those genuine giggles. However a well rested and well fed baby/child does a lot better in front of the camera.

WHAT TO WEAR FOR MY MATERNITY SESSION?

Dress comfortably! I want you to feel and look like yourself, if something doesn’t feel good, you’ll probably reflect that on the pictures.

MATERNITY

While I encourage pregnant women to avoid harsh colors and patterns, some soft floral patterns and one bright color option might be a good idea ONLY if that’s the kind of thing you like. However, I strongly suggest avoiding stripes and plaid fabrics. Knit tops and lacey textures are very welcome! Just make sure that the color choices for you and your partner are complimentary.

If you are going to wear a maternity gown, I suggest that you bring a change of clothes for a more “normal” look of yourself. Wearing a bathing suit underneath can help you change outfits easily.

Other very flattering clothing items are:

  • Tight-fitting clothes that will show your curvy and beautiful pregnant body.
  • A maxi skirt with a short top always looks amazing and simple.
  • Tight-fitting dress with some flare at the bottom.
  • Unzipped old jeans. Believe it or not, your pre-pregnancy jeans can be a great way to display your belly in a very sexy way (if you are into that sort of thing).
  • Man-sized button up shirts. Bring your partner’s favorite cami or a button up sweater to take some belly revealing photos.
  • Change it up by bringing a cardigan or one change of clothes if they come on easily.

Of course, if you can’t make up your mind from several options, feel free to shoot me a text, call, or email to ask.

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY PREGNANCY SESSION?

It is always a good idea to get in touch with me as soon as you know you are pregnant to discuss your options for the exact timing and my availability.

Normally I schedule women between 20 and 38 weeks depending on each client’s preference.

However, I do encourage all expectant parents to get their point and shoot cameras out and take amazing pictures since day 1 (or when you just found out), until the moment they give birth, here are some tips to help.

HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOUR FAMILY?

Whether you decide to work with me or not, I encourage you to put your baby’s safety at the top of your priorities.

A LOT goes into creating the kind of newborn images that experienced newborn photographers capture and there are no permits, licenses or formal education required for anyone to be a newborn photographer and some of the most popular newborn poses can be dangerous if not done properly, they are also very hard to achieve without the right equipment and conditions.

That’s why I put together this guide to help you find the right photographer for your needs and budget, even if it isn’t me!

Back to Index

NEWBORN SAFETY

Please keep in mind that a lot goes into creating the kind of newborn images that you see on my website. Most of the effort is making sure your baby is happy and safe. Currently, there is no formal education and no licenses required to handle newborns for photography purposes, while this is baffling, it is true.

Newborns are developing little individuals that can’t hold themselves up and whose muscles and ligaments aren’t fully formed. Because of this, it is extremely dangerous for an inexperienced or untrained person to handle your newborn, putting aside the fact that without the right conditions or equipment, your favorite newborn images are almost impossible to achieve.

For the reasons stated above, safety is paramount to my business. No matter what you’ve seen on Pinterest or Instagram, your baby is a unique individual and I will treat him/her with kindness and respect.  I won’t force your little one into any poses just to meet photo expectations. With that said, I will do everything I can to learn about your newborn photo dreams so I can whisper all my wisdom into his/her ears and make them happen.  Either way, I promise you that the photos you’ll get will be all that you would ever want and need.

Posing

If you have any specific requests regarding poses, make sure to discuss them with me ahead of time.  We need to be on the same page as far as newborn safety.

If needed, I will ask for your assistance to spot your little treasure when being held by a sibling, or when propped up on a surface. Certain poses can be dangerous if not done with safety precautions in mind.

Please communicate with me

It is very important that you let me know of any questions or comments that you have before or during the session.  I might be the expert but you are the parent, if something makes you uncomfortable please say so, I won’t be offended! This way I can ease away any concerns, explain what’s happening, and make sure everyone is happy with the flow of the session.

Keeping it germ-free

For every session, I make sure to wash my hands and disinfect my clothing with natural non-toxic antibacterial spray.

I thoroughly clean my camera equipment before coming to your home, including my posing setup.

All blankets, fabrics, and hats are washed after every photoshoot with plant-based baby friendly detergent and stored away in plastic tubs.

If, for any reason, I suspect that there is a bug going around my home, I will not hesitate to reschedule. It is never worth the risk!

I also ask that if there is a sickness going on in your home to please notify me, due to the nature of my work it is important to keep myself as healthy as possible.

Every baby is different

Remember, every newborn is a unique individual, therefore I can’t predict what will happen in every session. If the baby is uncomfortable or gets overwhelmed by a certain pose or situation, I will move on to the next shot and revisit if time allows.

Whether you decide to work with me or not, I encourage you to please put your baby’s safety above anything else! For that reason, I’ve put together a few tips to help you find the right photographer for your style and budget, you can find it through this link.

MY EXPERTISE

Besides having two boys of my own, I have years of experience working with newborns. I know all the techniques necessary to make them feel calm and happy and have a set of safety policies as well as equipment to make the best with every newborn I see.

I LOVE babies, I am obsessed with capturing the little details and characteristics of their newborn state as well as seen families grow and couples becoming parents for the first time.

As a postpartum mom, I remember feeling overwhelmed with all the information available to keep my baby safe. Now, I’ve made it my goal to eliminate that “overwhelming” part from having your baby’s pictures taken: I come to you, you don’t have to worry about getting ready to go out, I set up and clean up, and on top of that you will probably learn a trick or two to help you soothe your baby.

Bring those newborn images that you see all over my portfolio to live isn’t an easy task. However, I can assure you I am trained and experienced and will always put your baby’s safety first.

WHAT IS EDITED AND RETOUCHED ON EACH PHOTO?

While I use my expertise to take the best images possible straight out of my camera, editing is still one of the most time-consuming parts of my job, it can take anywhere from 10 min to 60 min per image.

Fully retouched images are the finished products that represent the full quality of my work and cover the following:

  • Skin imperfections (acne, some wrinkles, uneven skin tones, discolorations, jaundice, rashes, etc.)
  • People and cars in the background (your photos will look as if you were completely alone at the beach with your family)
  • Distracting objects or marks on a background, backdrop, or wall
  • Back, arm, and side fat rolls
  • Double chins
  • Enhanced sky and sunset colors
  • Teeth whitening
  • Extend and smooth backgrounds for newborn or studio-style sessions
  • Feature enhancements (brightening and sharpening of faces and eyes)
  • Color and ambiance editing to suit my style

The average is one to two weeks to receive your fully edited online gallery, and one additional week to receive your prints. Make sure to book your session at least one month in advance if you need any printed materials by a certain date (especially during holiday season).

HOW WILL MY PHOTOS BE USED?

I am proud of my work and I like to occasionally post photos from my clients on my Facebook page or Photo-Blog. As per my photographer contract, I may use up to 4 photos to promote my business. Breastfeeding and naked photos will never be used. Besides that, I do not share or sell your photos to anyone.

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A NEWBORN SESSION?

Setting a date ahead of time is not very convenient as the due date is mostly uncertain.

When you request to book a newborn session, I keep my schedule with at least 2 spaces free a week before and every week after your due date until the baby is born.

As soon as your baby is earthside, please get in touch with me to schedule the session.

In order to book a space around your due date, all you have to do is fill out my contract.

Please contact me in order to inquire about a payment plan for you.
