Ok, so, I was having a conversation with my 16 year old son. He was intrigued about photography and about how exactly my day as a newborn photographer normally goes. There are two parts involved in creating photography. One is the time I get to spend with my clients in studio. The other is the part where I am in my home office, on the computer, editing my images and communicating with my clients. If you are interested in photography, whether it is newborn photography, family photography or even maternity photography, I would encourage you to learn more, to get some training. If you admire the work of a particular photographer, find out if they are willing to mentor you. Some photographers offer educational programs.
Once a session is booked, my clients will receive a confirmation email. Within that email is specific information for them to review and to submit. I require a consent/agreement for all sessions and a newborn form for all newborn photo sessions. I have a software program that will create an account for each client. For instance, I will know how many people will be included in a session, the age of any children, a newborns date of birth, the preferred color palette for staging the studio in preparation for the session. About a day or two before a session, all clients will receive both an email reminder and a text reminder with all the pertinent information about their session (location, date, time) the text reminder also asks them to reply to confirm the session.
For newborn sessions, I plan ahead. I make sure that the studio is sanitized, that all textiles have been laundered with specific detergent for delicate skin. I will stage the setups according to the requested colors. My style is timeless, classic, organic a
