Nicole recommends maternity portraits between 32-36 weeks pregnant depending on how you are carrying. We want your belly at it’s biggest/roundest but still want you comfortable moving around. Nicole also offers a nice selection of maternity gowns too choose from. Please ask to see sample images. Family is always welcome to be included in these sessions. Turn around time for your online gallery is no longer than 2 weeks.
It is best to schedule your newborn portraits before baby is born. There is a $100 retainer to hold your babies spot as Nicole only schedules 6 babies per month. You will also fill out a questionnaire that will help with ideas you may have for your session as well as colors you prefer. After baby is born you will schedule the official newborn session. Newborns are only scheduled during the weekdays and once date and time have been booked Nicole will send over helpful tips and tricks to ensure for a successful session. You are free to bring any items you wish to incorporate into the session, however; Nicole prefers it to be no more than 2 personal items so they can be worked into the session workflow providing you with more beautiful images. Nicole has a full equipped studio in the Scotts Addition area of Broad Street. Her studio provides many headbands, hats, wraps, blankets and props to choose from. Turn around time for your online gallery is no longer than 2 weeks.
1 Year & Cake Smash
These sessions are so much fun for the little ones! We will start with 1 year traditional portraits on a dark wooden or white wooden backdrop. Then, we will move on to a backdrop that will be decorated according to the colors/theme you have chosen for the cake smash. A custom cake will also be provided. My personal baker is able to accommodate food allergies or you can bring your own cake. You will need to send pictures of child’s cake smash outfit as well as a cake style you like no later than 1 week prior to the session. Turn around time for your online gallery is no longer than 2 weeks.
These sessions are great for capturing each milestone…3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year (without cake). The studio provides many different props to use for these sessions and you are free to bring in any items as well. Outfit changes are unlimited but try to keep to a minimum as it usually frustrates the child. Turn around time for your online gallery is no longer than 2 weeks. Additional $50.00 for any parent/sibling shots.
There are many photographers to choose from and Nicole feels it is important to see exactly what you will receive so please inquire and she’d be happy to send over online galleries of a recent session you are interested in. With all on-location sessions Nicole can provide a list of great places for your portraits as well as send over galleries to give you a better feel for a particular location.
