Please make sure you book early to guarantee a session! We advise booking your newborn session during your second trimester. Many moms book as soon as they find out they’re pregnant! Newborn sessions take place between 5-14 days of age. Sessions are available for older newborns, with the understanding that baby may be alert, awake, and/or swaddled for a majority of the session, especially over the three week mark. Babies up to five weeks old will be considered “newborns” for photo session purposes. After this age they will be booked for a shorter milestone session around 6 months, without sleeping posed shots.
Sessions take place at my studio located in Webster, Tx (just outside of Houston). All props and accessories are included in your photo shoot for both maternity and newborn. We have an extensive prop closet full of gowns for maternity, and props, blankets, hats & headbands for your little one!
$150 creative fee per session (maternity, newborn, milestone or birth) is payable at the time of booking in order to retain my service. This covers the time and talent of the photographer, your pre consultation, access to my extensive collection of props and maternity gowns, and your gallery reveal session two weeks after your session. This creative fee is non-refundable. On average, clients minimum investment is $450 on our custom portraiture.
Prints, products and digital files are separate from creative fees.
Two weeks before your session we will meet at the studio for a private tour or schedule a extensive phone consultation. During this time we will discuss any questions or concerns you may have. We will choose wardrobe or prop accessories for your styled session. We will go over any must haves or client requests. Here at the studio we provide on-site shopping for families who need hands on help choosing wardrobe for spouses or participating children so that everyone looks cohesive and you enjoy your portraits for years to come. Also, we will discuss all the archival print products ALTOH has to offer ie. custom albums, mounted prints, custom framed art, canvas, and so much more.
The Big Reveal
Approximately two weeks after your session has taken place we will schedule an appointment to review your portraits. By this time you will have an understanding of what you are wanting to invest. Light refreshments will be served. All parties wanting to partake in the investing of portraits are encouraged to be at the Reveal as this will be the only time to purchase. A beautiful slideshow of your images will be portrayed for selections.
