Samantha booked her newborn session in her second trimester and dropped by the studio with her husband just to say hi. She asked me about hair and makeup services as she had noticed that most of our clients add that on. I answered her questions, and she decided she wanted to add it on too. Let me quickly address two things about adding on services!
(1) Adding on HMUA services does NOT extend the length of your newborn session. When you arrive at the studio, you slip into the hair and makeup chair and I start with photographing just your baby. We are usually finishing up at around the same time, and if I finish before you're ready, we'll take some daddy and baby images.
(2) For newborn session, all you need to do is let us know that you want to add it on to your session and you can wait until you contact us to let us know your baby has been born. We will then send you dates to choose from that both of us are available, and you simply pick one! The HMUA will be in touch with you directly to take care of booking from their end. Simple as that - we make it easy!
Another note: I always welcome meeting clients in advance of our booked session, as it allows us to chat for a little bit and get to know each other a little bit before you bring your brand new baby in. So, if you have booked a session and would like to come in and meet, just let us know and we'll schedule you to stop in.
I was so excited when Samantha emailed to let me know that little Hannah had arrived! When the family came up to the studio the morning of their session, Megan and I were both waiting for them. We always love peeking into the carseat and (quietly) squealing over how cute the babies are! Samantha chose a tunic from the studio wardrobe that she really liked, and settled into hair and makeup while I began photographing Hannah. It's striking how much Hannah resembles her daddy! You'll see what I mean once you see the images of them together.
Hannah was a sweetheart and she started smiling once she was in her mommy's arms for the parent and family portion of our session. I know that smiles are "just gas" but part of me doesn't really believe that. I like to think that babies feel happy, secure, and loved, and sometimes they smile to let us know. Without further ado, here are some of my favorite images from Hannah's session!
If you're expecting a baby or already a parent and looking for a newborn, maternity, or family photographer, I would love to work with you to create images that you will love for a lifetime. Watch this video to hear about my philosophy and see how I work in the studio so you can determine if I'm the right fit for you. I can't wait to meet you!
