Christina Davis Artistry
While I photograph many things, because I can't pick just one, newborn photography is one of my favorite categories! Having 6 children of my own, it's no surprise that I love babies and children! I aim to make each session unique and special to fit each client.
What do sessions include?
~ 1-3 hours, depending on baby - photographing newborns takes time and patience!
~ 20+ high quality images in a private online gallery, print ordering through gallery.
~ In-Home Lifestyle images with some posed if baby is willing.
(Not all poses or images are guaranteed.)
Booking & Scheduling
Book any time! Book before baby is born and I will set a tentative date based on your due date, then once baby is born we set a convenient date for when baby is between 4 and 14 days old. Book last minute for whatever reason and I will do my best to fit you in my schedule!
At time of booking, I send you a questionnaire to fill out and return to me - this helps me to provide the best, most personal session for you as possible!
Book your newborn session as a bundle (belly to baby, or 1st year) and receive a discount!
~ 20% retainer is due at time of booking for any session.
Earn your session for free! Simply refer your friends and family - earn a credit towards your session with each person that books!
~ We now have gift certificates! So be sure to add Christina Davis Artistry to your baby registry! ~
A registry page through my website is available upon request.
Preparing for your session!
Feed baby about 10 minutes before the session. I don't ask you to disrupt your baby's sleep pattern by keeping them awake beforehand. Instead, I have you choose the time of day your baby tends to sleep more, you know your baby best! You can change your baby before hand, but we all know they go when they want!
The time allotted for a newborn session takes into account feedings and changes. Baby is in charge!
We take as many breaks as baby needs to ensure their comfort and cooperation!
The great thing about a lifestyle session is that it is done in the comfort of your own home. No packing needed and no worrying about forgetting anything baby might need. No need to clean your entire house, we pick one or two rooms with the best lighting and try to stick with those.
I will arrive about 15 minutes early to get my settings and adjusted and any lighting that may be needed.
*If baby is extremely fussy and nothing seems to help, don't worry! This happens! Such is the life of a baby and it's just not our day. We will reschedule for the nearest time available so as not to stress the baby.
*For any type of newborn session, we discuss colors, props, themes and poses well before the session date! And sometimes we just go with the flow!
#1 Most important thing to me is your newborn's safety!
