What to expect for a Baby photo session
Each stage of your baby’s life brings something new!
Between the 1st smiles around 2 months & being able to sit around 8 months, life is an adventure!
From our first contact to the delivery of your images, you will discover a unique experience of high quality service based on professionalism, trust & fun!
Baby sessions can be done when your baby is between 2 & 12 months.
I recommend to prepare your baby’s outfits & yours if you’d like family images. Don’t forget to coordinate your outfits, it will be so much better.
I also recommend to pick the right time for the photo session: let’s avoid right after nap time!
If you breastfeed your baby, I’d be more than happy to photograph this significant moment.
If your baby has siblings, I recommend to keep them busy for at least the 1st half of the photo session.
Special session “Smash the Cake”:
When 12-month old, your baby is able to sit & grab whatever comes to her hands. This is the perfect time for a “Smash the Cake” session.
It will take place at your home or even in a quiet garden. I will let you prepare the cake & we’ll talk about the decorations & colors.
Be ready for a big mess & a lot of fun! For more info, read this article.
The session itself
It lasts 2 hours. We’ll be at home or outdoor if the weather is nice, in your garden or in a park.
No pressure during the session, your baby will dictate the pace of time.
We’ll have a lovely time with your baby smiling & babbling.
I bring warm & soft covers to keep your baby comfortable.
I’ll take pictures of the baby by herself & with the family too.
After the session, I save your images (and I keep the memory cards untouched until my job for you is done).
Then I edit them, making the best selection of images.
Then I process your images in the most natural way possible, which means I rework the original photo to create my artistic vision. I work in colors, contrast, re-framing and custom-made black & white versions.
I do not manipulate the images (I don’t make legs longer or noses shorter for example).
You can expect 40+ images for a 2-hour session.
When the images are ready, I create a beautiful online gallery & I send you a special message with the link to discover your images.
Thanks to that gallery, you’ll be able to:
- download the images in medium resolution
- share the link to the gallery to your family and friends
- select your favorite images
- order prints.
Then, I will send you the DVD with these same images in high resolution & gift prints if included in the package you chose.
If you’d like extra prints or larger framed images, just let me know & I’ll give you a quotation.
