MONTREAL LIFESTYLE NEWBORN + MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY

“You won’t find a more exceptional photographer. She is attentive to details, amazing with babies, and was a blessing to have for our maternity and newborn shoot.

I can’t say enough good things, she’s worth every penny!!!”

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE WAY I’LL PHOTOGRAPH YOUR BABY

Life with a newborn is hectic.

There’s no routine in your life, and your newborn session will be the same.  Each session will take on their own rhythm, adapting to you and your little one.  There won’t be any expectations of your new little love, and we’ll just follow his or her flow.

Your newborn session takes place in your home, this way you won’t need to worry about travelling with such a young baby or about germs, noise, bad weather etc.  I’ll arrive at your home with only my camera in hand.  No props and no pressure.   The focus will be on your family.

It is going to be simple, happy, beautiful and intimate.

My job is to freeze this moment in time for you, so whatever happens during your session, even if your baby is crying and only wants to be held, it doesn’t matter…this is a little piece of your life and that is what I want to document for you.  You will walk away with beautiful images whether your baby is peacefully asleep or wide awake.

I promise you will love your images, and if you don’t, I will come back until you do.

QUESTIONS?

Having a baby is pretty overwhelming, choosing your photographer doesn’t need to be.

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION?

Generally, when photographing newborns, we want the babies as young as possible, preferably under 10 days.  With lifestyle photography, this is a much more lenient rule that we can break when necessary.  However, keep in mind that newborns change really fast and shooting within the first 10 days after their birth will ensure we really capture the newborn essence.  Newborns are also generally very calm and sleepy during these first days.

Since we don’t usually know the exact date that your baby is planning on making their appearance, I just pencil you into my calendar to know around when to expect you.  Once baby is born, you will need to get in touch with me so we can pick out an exact date and time for your session.  *Please don’t wait until after baby is born to book a session, as spots go quickly and I can’t always fit families in last minute.

BUT MY HOUSE IS A MESS??!!!

I know many of you are thinking it!  And, it’s totally ok.  While your house will be in the frame, it is not the focus of the photo.  It doesn’t matter if you live in a one bedroom apartment that is overflowing with baby stuff or a in a spotless mansion.   You and your family are the focus of your images, not your home.  As long as you have a window and a little place to sit, that’s all we need to make beautiful, intimate photographs.

“Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the sidewalk before it stops snowing.”
― Phyllis Diller

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

Once you have reserved your session, you will get a link to your own client portal, where you will find everything you need to help you prepare for your session!  For your newborn session, I love to keep everything simple, and for your maternity session, I offer several classic, timeless dresses that you can use, or I will guide you on what to choose from your wardrobe!

I am also available for phone/skype/text/in-person consultations if you need any help.

when is THE best TIME for a maternity session?

Maternity sessions generally take place anytime after 30 weeks, or once you are showing quite obviously!  Sessions can take place right up to your due date, so if you are close, get in touch right away!

WHERE WILL MY MATERNITY SESSION TAKE PLACE?

Maternity sessions take place at your home, outdoors or another location.  Home sessions are very relaxed, and I will guide you into some beautiful, natural poses.

Summer outdoor sessions take place in the evening, when the light is most beautiful so we can get some dreamy, romantic sunlight.

If you want a more photojournalistic look, we can plan an activity – putting the crib together, preparing the nursery, shopping at the baby store.  There are endless possibilities to what your maternity session can look like!

I'M READY TO BOOK, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Once you are ready to book, I will forward you to the session booking form.  First you will select the options you want for your session(s) – then you will need to complete the session contract and pay the retainer.  Once that’s done – you are booked!  I will set up your client portal and we can start planning your session!!!

*The client portal is a private area where you can keep track of all our emails, contracts, invoices and you will have access to the What to Wear Guide, and information about preparing for your session etc.

WHEN WILL WE SEE OUR PHOTOS?

Your images will be carefull selected and retouched after you session.  You can expect 3 weeks before they’re ready.

Fill out the contact form and tell me EVERYTHING about you, your family and what you're hoping for!

02.

I'm gonna try to reply within 24 hours. Sometimes life gets in the way, and it takes me longer, but if you haven't heard back in 48 hours, please check your junk/spam mail and if there's still NADA, please call or write me back!  Promise I'll NEVER ignore you!

03.

Spots go fast.  I only take on a handful of sessions each month, and tend to book 2-3 months in advance.  If things are going my way, I will fit you in last minute, but I can't guarantee I'll be able to photograph your family if you wait too long to book, and I want to photograph EVERYONE, so, get in touch quick!
