For your Maternity & Newborn Sessions, I like to keep things as comfortable and safe as possible. When scheduling your Maternity Session, I typically like to do those when you are between 7 to 7 1/2 months along. I find that soon-to-be moms tend to be a little more comfortable during this time frame than if we were to do it a little later. Not to say we couldn't do it at any time, I again, just find that my clients are more comfortable during this time frame.
When setting up a newborn session, I typically like to do those when your new addition is between 5-10 days old. During this time frame, your little man (or sweet angel) tends to be more accepting of the different poses we would be putting them in. Just a heads up... I do make sure that your child is safe at all time and will not attempt a particular pose if they are uncomfortable or it is unsafe! While I do have a home studio which I prefer to do my newborn sessions, if you would rather I come to your home, I can do that as well as long as we have a good space for me to set up my equipment. I do also like to include parents and other siblings to join in these sessions so if you're interested, feel free to ask about that as well.
Your Maternity Session can be booked Monday - Sunday either in the early morning or late afternoon when lighting is the best. Newborn Sessions tend to be scheduled in the morning Monday - Sunday as well. Session pricing on this page includes up to 4 people so if there are more than that in your group or you have a little fur-baby you want to include, then there will be an extra fee of $25 per person/pet. If you are wanting to have your hair and make-up done for your session as well, I do offer stylized shoots for an additional fee.
After your session is over, you will be emailed with a link to an online gallery where you will be able to pick out your favorites that you would like for me to professionally retouch and edit. Depending on the package that you choose, there is a 2-3 week turn around time for you to get your high resolution images back. You will receive another email after this with a link to your very own password protected gallery so that you can download your images to your computer, CD, or USB.
Please keep in mind that when booking your session, deposit is required to reserve your date and time. Any remaining balance is due the day of your session. Contact me anytime at jennifer@C2JPhotography.com OR 214-682-7240.
