BEFORE YOUR SESSION
We will schedule an in-person or telephone consultation appointment to discuss colors, props, packages, products and payment schedule.
I provide various pieces of information so that you are completely ready for your session:
A contract so that you are completely secure that I have reserved room for your session
A"Welcome Guide" so that you can learn a bit about me, my style and what to expect.
An e-brochure that details "The Studio" so know what it looks like and what props are available.
A "Parent Guide" if parents are to photographed.
A "Sibling Guide" if siblings are to photographed.
A "What to Wear Guide" if doing Outdoor family portraits.
A "How to Prepare Guide". These are specific and are available for pregnancy sessions, newborn sessions, baby sessions, and cakesmash sessions.
DURING YOUR SESSION
For Pregnancy, we have over 3 dozen gorgeous gowns in silk, chiffon, and lace. Gowns are made for the pregnant mama and fit beautifully and hug all the right places. Gowns can be as modest as you'd like with full coverage or split down the middle to expose that gorgeous belly! Stretch marks? No worries! We got you covered. Anything that you are not born with is removed!
For Newborns, we have a beautiful assortment of props, hats, hair pieces and knitted items in cashmere, angora and merino wool for use in our photography sessions. There is no need to bring anything for your baby unless you have a special item that you would like included in your session. We keep the studio at 85 degrees so that your newborn is warm and comfortable throughout the session. We will do the family (mommy/daddy/sibling) photography poses first so that you can relax and enjoy the rest of the session. No outside photography allowed. We ask that you do not photograph during our session as it creates a huge distraction.
Beautiful matching gowns for girls and vintage inspired wardrobe available for the boys.
Full payment is finalized at this time. If you need payment arrangements, please inquire before the session. We accept cash and all major credit cards.
AFTER YOUR SESSION
Once your photography session is complete, I will go work to cull and select the best images from your session. It will take 3 weeks from your session to receive your fully retouched, and beautifully edited digital files.
If you have requested prints. Expect a four to six week processing time for press printed books and albums.
When your order is ready, we will call you for pickup.
NOTE: While Diane Bartoo Photography makes every effort to protect files, we can not guarantee the availability of images that are not ordered after 90 days.
