These first-time parents called me up when their daughter was just 4 days old with the hope that I would have availability since their scheduled photographer was ill and unable to photograph their sweet little newborn. Luckily we had an opening and were able to get the family into the studio for a newborn session that would eventually start their Collective Membership.
The Purpose Behind the Pictures in this newborn session
One of the first ways we connect with clients is the consultation phone call. Sure you can see portraits online from someone and love how they look, make appointments via email, and have everything be super easy… until you get to the session and realize you don’t click with the photographer at all. We want to make sure that doesn’t happen so you’ll always chat with me or Rebecca before you book to make sure we are a good fit. Family portraits are important to us but we like to know why they’re important to you. In our consultation call, this momma explained that she has very few images from her childhood and her husband have so many. She wanted to ensure their daughter has what her husband has – memory upon memory to look back on as she grows and to be able to share that with her own children. Having a newborn session is a perfect way to start capturing those memories for your children, and for you as you look back year after year.
From one session to three
At the ordering appointment for their newborn session, mom and dad had a hard time deciding which of these newborn portraits was their favorite. They talked about a gallery wall for their living room and having one or two portraits for the nursery. So together we used our planning software and designed a perfect little 3-piece gallery for their living room that could be added on to in future sessions. This is how one session became three – after going over framing options and realizing they wanted to continue documenting Matilda’s milestones, they became a Collective family so they don’t have to worry about remembering to schedule portraits for those big moments in her first year. We will do the leg work and send reminders when it’s time to schedule the sitter session and one-year session. Since they are part of the Collective Membership, one of their sessions is free, they receive complimentary newborn announcements and will receive an album credit at each ordering appointment to add to their Collective Album. We are so excited to be a part of helping create this family’s legacy to be cherished forever.
