It’s been a great start to 2018 (well I guess we are already in March, but it feels like the beginning of the year still)! I’ve had a great run of babies (a few non-sleepers), some wonderful cake smash and milestone sessions, indoor maternity sessions and even a few headshot sessions! (I’m having fun with the headshots – it’s a refreshing change to work only with one adult and not a sleeping baby, ha ha ha. So if you know someone in need of an updated headshot – send them my way!).
Dylan came to see me in February for his newborn photography session and he was a ROCKSTAR! He slept so great for me and we knocked out some fun props and poses and even a monster outfit! The monster outfit was a gift his mom had received and to be honest at first glance we all had a little chuckle and I thought “well we’ll see how it goes” – and it ended up being some of my favorite shots from his session! In fact – mom donated it to the studio for future sessions – so even though I don’t typically offer those types of outfits, I do have the monster available if anyone is interested! Dylan’s family came back to visit me for his reveal session and I couldn’t believe how much he had changed in just two weeks!
In 2018 I moved my newborn sessions to a slightly different platform than I was offering before to help parents be able to choose what they wanted out of the session. This could be that parents don’t want to have portraits taken, or they don’t want any images of baby naked or in outfits – now they can choose a mini session instead of my full newborn photography session. In addition to changes I am offering that parents can either pre-purchase their package or products either prior to the session or during the session OR they can come back to the studio for a reveal session where we can go through the images and discuss what they would like to use them for, who they want to purchase certain gifts for, etc. During Dylan’s reveal session his parents were gifted all their 4×6 prints, a customized USB drive with their images and slideshow and a keepsake box! I love being able to spoil my clients – it makes me so happy every time I get to give them gifts!
This may be one of my favorite Dad images. He was so excited to get up for his turn to take pictures with his baby boy and it just made my heart melt. And when this picture came up during their slide show I know that both mom and dad had a little tear in their eye.
A little Buckeye love for his dad … and the infamous monster outfit! When mom pulled it out I was definitely hesitant – but you guys – is it not the most adorable thing ever!
