NEWBORN INVESTMENT GUIDE

There is never a more important time for capturing the memory of your child than during those first few weeks after birth. Though every baby is unique, the ideal time for your newborn session is from 5-14 days old, while they are still mostly sleeping and naturally comfortable in the cuddled up position as seen here.

Not only are we extremely passionate about creating the most incredible and unique images of your precious newborn, we are committed to making the photo session itself an enjoyable, relaxed and stress-free experience. We have the perfect studio space that is ideally setup for the comfort and safety of your baby. Prior to your photo session, we encourage you to visit so that we can discuss your favorite themes, props, colors and any other details so that we can achieve the very best results. We truly believe that planning is the key to creating the most remarkable newborn photos, Our mission is to create beautiful artwork that your family will treasure for generations.

We provide everything needed to personalize your newborn photos. With a variety of printed backdrops, baskets, custom-made props, posing pillows and many colored blankets and wraps, we can create an endless number of unique setups. We also offer hand-made hats, headbands and complete outfits, while able to design your baby’s photos based on family interests, hobbies, and/or favorite sports teams.

TIMELINE OF EVENTS

  • The recommended consultation and planning meeting is scheduled. This is generally a month or so prior to birth, or sooner for maternity sessions.

  • We welcome you to visit our studio and spend approximately 30-45 minutes so that we can best understand what you would like to achieve with your baby’s newborn photos. While not recommended, we can do this over the phone if necessary.

  • During your visit, we will also go over how to best prepare during the week between birth and the actual photo session.

  • Deposit is required at this time. The deposit is covers our time in preparing for your baby’s session, studio supplies and to hold the date. However, we do understand that the baby’s arrival is not always predicable, thus we are flexible and will adjust our schedule as needed. The deposit is applied to your package, but is non-refundable in the event of cancellation.

  • We will stay in contact with you so that we know when your baby is going to arrive and will then plan the studio session on the weekend approximately 5-14 days after birth.

  • The session will last between 1-3 hours, but it really all depends on how your baby is feeling. Again, we will help you with how to prepare so that we have the best chances of your baby sleeping while in the studio.

  • Immediately after the session, we will quickly prepare the images for viewing. While there will certainly be editing work to make them look their very best, it is here that you can choose the images that you like best. This allows us to focus our efforts on your favorite images.

  • A final viewing and ordering time will be scheduled which is generally 2 weeks after your session. This gives us time to work on the editing and preparation that is needed after any photo session.

  • The balance of your chosen photo package cost is due at this time.

  • At the ordering session you will be able to place your print orders and by doing so in person, we will minimize any errors and also pick out frames and album types if such items are purchased.

  • Any additional costs not covered in your initial package is due at time of ordering.

  • We will provide some of your favorite images for sharing on social media. Like our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kpixprophotography.
