Pregnancy and Newborn Portraits 661-942-4813

Your pregnancy is one of the most special times in your life.

You may not even realize it now, but looking back on it, you will marvel at the miracle it is. 

We suggest that you be photographed around 8 months, when you are looking very pregnant, but it isn’t too close to the due date.

What happens when we book a session with Julie?

We begin with the end in mind. Before we shoot any images, we need a plan for how they will be displayed in your home.

 

“So, How Do You Want To Display Your Images?”

     Knowing the answer helps us create a plan for your session,

    shoot it in the best possible way to reach our end-goal, and show you images that thrill you to no end.

 

So let us show you how the Portrait Process works.



PRE-CONSULTATION/PLANNING APPOINTMENT

     First, let’s talk goals! What final result are we shooting for and how will we plan it? From what to wear, to how images will be displayed, color design, location planning and look and feel of the session, the pre-consultation answers ALL your questions and helps us get to know your family. We will coordinate how we shoot the session with what the final outcome will be.

We have several clothing options, such as, a white shirt and top, black skirt and top, and a split front dress. 

These outfits are specially designed for pregnant clients and are designed to be very flattering in pregnancy portraits.

We  also have fabric draping in several colors.

Of course, you are welcome to bring your own clothing. 

     Your shoot is NOT happenstance. It is carefully planned and fully designed. Pre-consults can take place in-person or on the phone.

     Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell us about your home and your vision and we’ll add in our creativity to make it happen.

SESSIONS AT THE STUDIO

     Shoots can be somewhat stressful for families. From wondering if the kids will behave, to agonizing over what to wear and convincing dad that it won’t be “that bad,”  it may have been challenging for you in the past.

Sessions with Julie are relaxed. Fun-filled, happy and relaxed, Julie doesn’t care about crazy kids! her.

     On top of that, when you work with Julie,  proper planning, a solid goal and knowing exactly what will happen, you’ll feel confident with your clothing and dad will marvel at how “easy” it really was.

Shoots take place in our professionally designed, downtown studio in Lancaster, CA.  We work with controlled studio lighting and simple backgrounds. The studio offers a  relaxed environment where we create a look that is special to you.

We focus the portrait experience around just that, an amazing experience. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and a commitment to each family’s relationship and the creation of unique art for their home.

Ordering Appointment

    We will set up an ordering and viewing appointment for about two to three days after your photo session.

            You will view your images in our projection room, where you can see your images at any size you want.

We block out an hour for your ordering appointment

to give you ample time to design and create exactly what you want.

DELIVERY

About 3-4 weeks later, your art piece will be ready for pick up.

We’ll call or email you to let you know it’s here and make arrangements for you to take home the final result.  

And once those portraits are hanging, you can sit back and enjoy them EVERY DAY.

For these are your precious kids —the ones who are growing too fast and who you will cherish to the end of your days.

 

A LONG-TERM PLAN

And that’s not the end! Our families often come to us year after year. As your children grow and change, it will be time to update your portraits. So right from the start we plan, knowing that more may come. And we design around that! The next time you work with us, we’ll create art that coordinates with sessions past, so you can build on to what we’ve already created for you in a way that works and delights you year after year.
