I know there are many people who have questions about our newborn sessions because they are either new to it or have never used us before, down below you will find the REAL RAW scoop!
We offer 4 packages, 4, cuatro! And all of them give you digital files! We don't do that in person sale thing because let's be honest who has time for that? I know I don't and I know you all don't especially after having a brand new baby and getting adjusted to life again, so we don't make you pick your favorites we just make sure to take a ton of favorites and give you one from each setup!
We also always hear?....
Do you charge for sibling shots or parent shots? HECK NO! We include that in our price, why am I going to charge you extra for that? I mean you are a family unit, that is not cool and if anyone is charging you extra for that then they aren't making the most of the newborn session time.
How many setups do you get? We try and give you as many as possible but in reality it tend to be at least 5 but it's different poses and not the same pose over and over and it honestly depends on how the baby does. Sometimes the babies do great, sometimes they don't, we just go with the flow!
How long are the sessions? They are UP TO 2 hours, on a good day with a sweet super sleepy baby I can get everything I need in less then 1 1/2 hours but most of the time it's 2 hours tops!
Can you make me look skinnier? LADIES, don't ask me that, embrace your body after having your baby! NO ONE and I mean NO ONE looks like a model after having their baby and honestly it's all in posing and flowy tops! That is the secret!
What if my kids won't take pictures with the new baby? This does happen sometimes and you have to be understanding of the fact that your littles are also getting adjusted to the new addition and maybe just maybe they don't like their new family member yet, it's a big change for them, so don't be discouraged but I do send tips on what to do to make that shot a bit easier!
How long is the turn around time? Are you ready for this? 7-10 BUSINESS DAYS! Yup, you read that right! This is my only session with that kind of turn around time. Now why do I do them so fast? Because you've been waiting for 9 months for this sweet baby and I personally do not feel right making you wait for much longer! Now, we do have people who don't read this part in their contracts and message multiple time and answering this questions over and over every other day can put a delay in the gallery bc I have to stop to answer it again when I could be editing, I get the excitement believe me I do but I'm being totally honest on how answering the same questions over and over delays things.
How old are the newborns when you bring them into the studio? I like to have them in between 8-14 days and I'll tell you why! Because you babies sleep better, your milk (if nursing) has come in and baby is comfortable being handled and normally take pacis (if taking one) rather well!
How do I know when the baby is really coming in order to schedule? We set you up on a tentative date based on your due date, this saves a spot for your little one. Once the baby has been released from the hospital AND ONLY THEN will we schedule a date once you reach out to us.
So those are the most asked questions and here is what I suggest you pay attention to when picking the right photographer.....
1. Are their images consistent in posing and editing?
2. Do the babies look naturally and comfortably posed? If the pose looks awkward, then it's NO BUENO!
3. Are the images focused? OH LORRRDDDD, this one is important! Why? B/c they are only little once and if the images aren't focused you might not be able to redo it! How to tell if they aren't focused and sharp?
- if the bow is focused more than their face
- if the images looks "soft all over"
- if their eyes looks fuzzy in the picture
If you see this RUN because you can't get that moment back!
Hope this helps you pick the right photographer and by that I mean US (hahahahahah) and if you'd like to book shoot us an email at LETSTALK@LGPBYLISA.COM
