We understand how tired you feel. How unsettled and crazy this time is. We are parents too after all, with Karen being a mother of two and Marcus a father of three, including twins. With this in mind, we make your newborn portrait session a time out for you. We will keep it brief, yet we won’t rush you – there will be time to settle, time to feed, time to relax and time to actually enjoy your coffee. Our studio is specially heated for the comfort of newborns and we have plenty of little tricks to get them settled. To capture these memories we customise each portrait session and handwork each image to create art pieces as diverse and beautiful as the lives of the people in them. We’ll photograph your little one in a favourite outfit or with that special keepsake you were given when they were born. We can also use our own little props to create adorable images. Your portrait can be at a time that suits you and your little one’s routine. If they have no routine, you can simply choose a time that you think will work and we will help you from there.
Before your shoot we will answer all of your questions, with your Studio Impressions experience beginning with a portrait design session to enable us to get to know you and discuss locations, styles, and special touches meaningful to you. We will work with you to plan just what you want. The pre consultation is important to help prepare us both for your portrait session as we strive to deliver a unique experience for each family. We understand that with newborns it can be difficult to visit the studio for this session, so we can also do this over the phone or via Skype.
After your photography session, we will invite you back to relax in our viewing lounge and be treated to a design consultation and a slideshow of your images. From here, you can choose the ones you want to keep, and we’ll help you select the size, print, technique or album that will best display your favourites, using the highest art-quality materials available. We will also provide you with an online gallery so your loved ones can see the photos too. We will be upfront about our packages, and will keep it simple. No doubt, you will treasure these images more over time, but you can also enjoy watching the newborn in them grow and come to cherish them too. One day they will look to these portraits to find the likeness in their own children.
