At first contact, you will find there is a big difference in the entire experience of having a session with Always Remember Photography. We will chat either on the phone or in person, whichever is most convenient for your family, and discuss all of the things that make your family unique. We will talk about your home decor, your spouse and older children if you have any, what colors you love, what the nursery looks like and even if you have any special items that you might like to include in your session, like the blankie Grandma Adeline knit for baby Jackson. I’ll listen closely to your family story so that I can take it all in and make a plan for that special session day!
If we are able to meet in person, I’ll have lots of beautiful samples for you to look at! This way you can get an idea of how you might like to display your session images. There are some gorgeous options, like album blocks, canvases (my absolute favorite!), shelf displays, and of course, custom designed albums with amazing photo covers! I like to bring them so my clients can touch and feel everything and see the quality of the products I provide. I’ve spent many hours looking for the best of the best and I know that you will love them all! (Don’t worry if you can’t make an in-person consultation, I will bring all the sample items with me again on the day of your session. You’ll have plenty of time to look at them all while I’m focused on photographing baby!)
After our pre-session consultation, I’ll have you log on to the special Client Site and fill out the Newborn Photography Contract and Getting to Know You questionnaire. (The questionnaire just helps me keep everything fresh in my mind!) I’ll also have you send in your Session Fee, either through PayPal, by check or if you’d like to meet in person, by cash. I schedule a maximum of 2 newborns per week (penciled in by due date) so this payment holds your place in my calendar.
Once your Session Fee is received, I’ll send out your session information packet, so you have all the information you need for your session day! You always have access to me, of course, if you have any questions. (Seriously! Just ask!) And there is also information on both the website and the Client Site, but this holds more detailed information on preparing for your newborn session.
