Lifestyle Newborn By White wave photography

Welcome

I am so pleased you have chosen White Wave Photography and look forward to working with you to exceed your expectations. Whether this is your first or forth child, I am sure that you are excited to welcome your new little peanut into the world. As a mother of 3, I remember those last couple of weeks of waiting were the hardest part. Meeting this new little person is the most amazing experience but it is also exhausting. This is where I come in. I am truly blessed to be able to come into your home and photograph some of the first days of your child’s life. My goal is for you to look at these images and be able to remember for years to come everything about this new little blessing.

Custom portraiture is an investment in beautiful artistry that will be treasured for generations to come and I am committed to offering classic, candid photography to capture sentimental moments for your family and to offer heirloom products to enjoy for a lifetime.

This welcome kit shares what you can expect from your custom photography experience with White Wave Photography and provides helpful, important information about the uniquely rewarding experience I offer. If you have questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact me. I am excited to begin our creative journey with you!

Why Lifestyle Newborn?

The first few days after leaving the hospital are a whirlwind of learning everything there is to know about your new baby and just soaking up the quality time together. Bonding and watching their little personalities develop is such an amazing experience. I love to come to your home and capture these special moments whether they are snuggling, feeding, sleeping, getting a tubby or just sitting together as a family. As much as I love cute baby props, I like to capture your baby in a timeless fashion, capturing these moments that will be remembered for years to come. There is nothing more innocent than a baby snuggled up in his mother’s arms. Or a little princess, lying on her parent’s big bed surrounded by her daddy and big brothers. These are the moments that I think are important to capture and they will be remembered for generations.

Charlianne Mary was born March 31, 2015. She is full of smiles, giggles and a lot of spunk. She makes our family laugh EVERYDAY! Charli has rounded out our family perfectly and is so fun to photograph!

The White Wave Photography Experience

Have you had your portraits taken before and the disk or USB is sitting in a drawer somewhere? Have you been meaning to get those images printed and hung on the wall? Does this task seem overwhelming and too time consuming for you? Well, if you answered yes, I am here to help. White Wave Photography strives to make sure that you are getting those precious family memories out of a drawer and displayed for you and your family to cherish for years to come.

White Wave Photography is a full service boutique photography business. My goal is to make sure you not only have an amazing session that leaves you with fun memories but also to provide you with heirloom quality prints and products that will last a lifetime.

No more files hidden away in drawers for no one to see. About two weeks after your session you’ll have your reveal night where you’ll get to see all of your images for the first time. That night we’ll work to create amazing products to showcase your entire session. From custom collages and wall art to image boxes - White Wave Photography has a full range of products to meet all of your needs!

I’m guessing that right now you’re saying “But I want the digital files!”. Don’t worry I completely understand where you’re coming from. I value digital files as much as you do (otherwise I wouldn’t have a stack of hard drives filled with precious family memories!). White Wave Photography offers collections that include digital files along with the quality products for your family to enjoy. You’ll get the best of both worlds AND get them for a lower price when they’re combined in a collection. Doesn’t get much better than that! I am excited to begin this creative journey with you!

What to Expect

Before the Session

Before your session, we will have an in-person, on-line, or phone consultation. This is where we will discuss your expectations and get to know each other. It is my goal for you to get to know me on a personal level to make sure we are a good fit together because you are inviting me into your home to capture these precious moments. During your consultation we will also go over any questions or concerns you might have about your session.

Once we know that we are a good fit and you're ready to book your session, we will go over the contract, as this will need to be signed prior to booking. I will also collect your $250 non-refundable retainer to hold your session date and time. Once the retainer has been collected, and contract completed, your session will be written into my calendar.

During the Session

During your Lifestyle Newborn Session I will capture the interaction between you and your family. Lifestyle Newborn sessions typically consist of mom, dad, and baby. If there are other siblings (including 4 legged children) they are included in the session as well. I will spend around 2 hours in your home photographing life as it unfolds. Whether that includes feeding, playing, bathing, or anything else, I will be there to document it all. I will do a few posed family shots but I am mostly there to document the moments between you, your baby and the rest of the family.

What to Wear

New Mom

Selecting clothing for your first postpartum photoshoot may seem daunting. Your first instinct may be “oh, no, the baby only, not me.” But you have White Wave Photography, and we are newborn experts - we know what we are doing (that’s why you hired us, right?). We know how to position you so that you look your best and that we capture the bond between you and baby. If you are going to show off one image of you and your baby, it will undoubtedly be the one taken by a professional! We think simple clothing is best for the new mama without distracting patterns. White, cream, soft pink or even charcoal or black are all great choices. Most moms prefer themselves in long sleeve tops.

Newborns

We love organic fabrics. Nothing spells baby more than a plain white onesie and a soft swaddle blanket. Or nothing at all (tastefully of course). White Wave Photography has several simple hats, wraps and blankets that we will provide for your session or you can personalize your images with your own items. Typically we caution against “outfits” as usually they overwhelm your newborn. Save the fancy, busy clothes for the visits to the grand-parents, or bring them for the end of our session and we will make sure we capture a few images that include your favorite. Have a look at our portfolio to view colors and choices that we adore!

Older Babies

While we still love white and neutrals, we like to incorporate bursts of color, fun hats and anything quirky that shows your babies spunk and personality. We typically advise against anything that is too trendy or will date your photos and we avoid looks with statements (as in “Daddy’s little helper”). Please communicate with White Wave Photography about any specific props or setups to ensure that it is in line with what we typically offer within our portfolio. Finally, we can’t caution enough about avoiding the “orange” foods the day before and the day of your session...it takes quite a bit of post-processing work to remove the glow from your baby’s otherwise beautiful skin.

Children & Family

When it comes to “What to Wear” with families, not all the pieces match, but some repeat, and they all coordinate. Unless your entire family dresses the exact same to go out and about, don’t do it for your session. That statement will always apply for on-location. However, in studio, keeping similar neutrals works well and we’ve had beautifully coordinated “white t-shirts and jeans” sessions or three children all wearing matching handmade t-shirts and onesies.

After the Session

You’ve already had a blast at your session but now things are about to get even better! Two weeks after your session we’ll have your reveal night (we’ll schedule this at the same time we schedule your session to make sure you see your images as soon as possible!). On your reveal night you’ll see all of your images for the first time. It’s definitely something to get excited about!

That night I’ll come to your home (that’s right no babysitter and you can even stay in your jammies if you want!) and show you a custom slideshow with your images. I will also bring along prints, wall art and products that you touch and feel.

After you’ve experienced the slideshow you’ll have some time to go through all of your images and take a look at all of the product samples. Seeing everything in person will really give you a sense of what products are most important to you. My favorites are framed collages and image boxes (because I can never decide on which images to choose)!

You’ll have plenty of time to ask any questions, to hold up images to different walls in your own home to see what sizes will work best and enough time to pick out your favorites.

The collections on the following page have been put together to give you the absolute best quality product for the best value. Those collections are available on reveal night only. No need to worry if the products in the offered collections don’t fit you’re needs, all products are available a la carte as well and are 20% off on reveal night!

The goal of the reveal night is to finalize your order so we can get your prints and products to you as soon as possible. To help make this stress free it’s a great idea to take a look through all of the different products and collections so you can go into it with an idea of what might work best for you. Once you’ve seen your images that may change but it’s always good to have an idea when we get started!

Investment

There is a $250 non-refundable retainer due at the time of booking to hold your session date and time. This fee covers my time and talent only (digital files and products are sold separately). Prices are subject to change at any time, however, once a retainer has been paid, your price is locked in. No need to worry about choosing your collection or product now. Payment for collections and a la carte products is not due until we have your Reveal Night.

If you're ready to book your family photography session, or if you'd like more information, I would love to hear from you!
