Newborn, Maternity & children's portraits
the children's PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE
We are full-service, geared toward busy parents who would rather we take the reins in getting portraits made and printed. Our process involves a lot of face-time because we like to spend time guiding you through the whole process.
- First, we meet! Before you book, we like to sit down and design your portrait session with your display goals in mind. This quick 30-minute meeting is a wonderful way to see if we're a good fit, see our portfolio in print, feel our amazing products, talk schedule/logistics, and have all of your questions efficiently answered. Skip the 15-thread email and come chat with us instead!
- The fun part - our session with you. All of our posed newborn sessions take place in our Virginia Beach or Suffolk studios, but we can alternatively do relaxed, lifestyle (candid) portraits in your home. The best time to take newborn photos is within the first three weeks. Most of my babies have been about 10 days new - you're a little past the initial new baby chaos and the baby is still young enough for those sleepy poses. For milestone photography, instead of attaching an age, I like you to bring your baby in when they are sitting, then standing/walking or celebrating any milestone. Or none! Just take photos just to have them; we love to see it.
- A week or so after your session, we'll meet again for your reveal & purchasing appointment. We'll go through all your favorites and based on what you choose, I'll make recommendations on what products would fit best. You only buy what you love and then we will take it from there.
- Product delivery day! Depending on the handmade nature of our products, most of our artwork will take four to six weeks due to editing, production, and shipping. It is worth the wait and will make beautiful decor or mementos in your home.
