Session Experience

What to Expect

Sessions with us are relaxed and fun! We don’t expect your kids to be “on their best behavior”. Don’t feel bad if they aren’t being perfect little angels on the day of the session. We expect your children to be who they are – kids! We want the experience to be fun for all involved so that your children will be happy to return to “Crystal’s studio” for many years to come. The biggest thing that you can do to help is to trust us! We promise that you will get natural and beautiful expressions from your child if you relax and have a little fun too.

Newborn Sessions

Once you arrive you will have some time in the studio to feed and sooth your baby. The studio is kept at 85° in order to keep your baby warm and comfortable. Newborns can lose their body temperature quickly, especially when unclothed, so we need to ensure they are kept warm at all times. You may want to dress in layers so that you are comfortable as well. Try to have one other person there with you during the session to help. Newborn sessions can often get long and tiring for all involved {bring snacks!}

Please know that babies pee and poo on everything and you don’t need to worry! We launder everything after every session and we have plenty of wipes and towels on hand. There will be a white noise machine running to help soothe the baby. Feel free to sit back, relax, read a book, or even take this rare opportunity to take a nap yourself! We ask that parents wait in another room while we pose and photograph your sleeping newborn. Parents are wonderful, but can be distracting for baby and the photographer. We will call you in immediately if your baby needs something… which he or she probably will!

After the Session

Now you can now go home, relax and dream about all of the beautiful images that will soon be yours. Bliss! Within 1 week of your session, we’ll have you come back into the studio for your Image Premiere & Order Appointment. Please bring with you all decision makers, as this appointment is designed for you to place your order. It is best to leave little ones with a sitter… make it a date night! Once placed, your order will arrive within 2-4 weeks. You will then have wonderful, precious images to remind you of the innocence of your tiny newborn or the fun time you had as a family.

Why order a PRINT?

  • Because your prints are for today, tomorrow and all the tomorrows after that.
  • Because prints remind us of what love really feels like.
  • Because they’re only young once.
  • Because the place to save money is not on the most important purchases.
  • Because when there’s a fire, what’s the first thing you grab?
  • Because so many photos get lost, or even worse, deleted off of old hard drives.
  • Because you can touch and feel your memories.
  • Because you put too much work into your family not to show them off!
  • Because technology comes and goes.
  • Because photography is best enjoyed in print.
  • Because a memory stick in a drawer is forgotten.
  • Because a hard drive doesn’t trigger a smile.
  • Because memories are tied to touch.
  • Because there’s nothing like sitting down by a fireplace and flipping through the pages of a family album.
  • Because your parents and grandparents won’t be around forever.

Because there are moments you can’t get back, but a print can make you feel them again.

Technology comes and goes. Don’t let your precious family memories get lost on old drives or extinct disks. It is through PRINT photography that your family’s story memories will be handed down from one generation to the other. Explore and ask us about all of our amazing options for creating beautiful, tangible, and long-lasting quality images.
