The Insley Photography Process
How it works in 4 easy steps
PLAN, SHOOT, REVEAL, DELIVER
First We Begin With A Planning And Design Consultation
You know you need portraits to capture this fleeting stage in your child’s life. But what are you going to do with them? Before we ever enter the studio we will create a plan for where and how your maternity, newborn and family images will be displayed in your home. We will tell your story your way.
Do you have a spot above the crib all picked out for newborn photos? Are you a mom with two older children, and you need to add to a family portrait gallery wall you’ve already started in the playroom? Or do you need some inspiration? I am here to guide you! Your personal planning consultation will help me fill your unique needs and create a tailor-made plan just for you. This is how we begin with a plan.
Getting to know your family and also answering all of your burning questions — probably a few you didn’t even know to ask!
What should I wear?
We will talk through all these concerns. Should we bring extra clothes? Can you make me look ten pounds lighter? (I get asked this occasionally) You will leave with an idea of what everyone should wear and I’m available between the meeting and the photoshoot for outfit consults via text, phone or even a video call. Want a one on one with a stylist? I’ve got someone to help with that too.
What will it cost? How should we prepare? Don’t worry we will go over everything and you will leave your planning appointment with a clear understand of the investment you’ll be making and exactly what to do before your photoshoot.
We will also schedule your newborn portrait date based on your due date; this usually gets changed a bit but assures you space on my calendar. We will chat about all the details, and find out what is most important for you and your family, is the best way to ensure we have an amazing portrait session. Planning out your wall designs, your clothing choices, and your backgrounds ensure everything will look and feel amazing in your home.
Stress-Free Portrait Session
Now that we have made a plan together, Next it is time to create your beautiful baby’s portraits! I’ll handle it from here! I work hard to capture your new baby’s tiny toes, lovely lashes, and that button nose, everything that makes your baby the one-of-a-kind miracle she is. Capturing all the details that will become cherished memories for a lifetime.
What about the rest of the family? I know those with older kids might have had a stressful portrait session in the past. Any parent who’s taken a curious toddler to a busy park for photos knows what I’m talking about. I promise this is a different experience. As a mom of two wild boys and a family photographer with 17 years experience I’ve pretty much seen it all. Just get them to the studio and dressed I’ll handle the rest. Really I’ve got this.
Reveal Appointment Where You Choose Your Favorite Images
Finally about a week after the session, you come in to view a slideshow of your portraits. the results of all our planning will be revealed. Mockups of your portraits digitally displayed on your walls will help you see what looks best in your home. If you’ve expressed interest in albums, album mock-ups will be ready too. Every viewing and ordering appointment is customized to create artwork your family will love for a lifetime. This is your time to finalize your beautiful artwork order.
Delivery And Installation Of Your Wall Art
This is the best part where Moms tell me it’s like Christmas for them. Yes, you read that right. Delivery and Installation of your wall art is included! This is all part of my personal service to you! Most of my parents prefer to have the artwork delivered and installed. No one wants to wait for free time on your weekend to measure, second guess or argue about the hanging the art. Trust me it’s a lot of fun to let someone else do the heavy lifting.

Testimonials from past clients
Alicia did an amazing job with our maternity and newborn sessions! She is super responsive, professional, and flexible. I now have the most beautiful photo album and photo wall in my home, and pictures I will cherish forever. We look forward to doing our six month photos with her as well! You truly get what you pay for, and she was so helpful in getting our prints ordered (and hand delivered) too! The last thing you want to worry about after a baby is coordinating getting all these moments captured, and she helped take the stress off! I could not recommend her enough.Alexa of Fort Mill
Alicia went above and beyond our expectations for newborn pictures. Her attention to detail is what makes it even more worth it. From helping us pick out the best colors to wear to coming to our house to help get our portraits on the walls. She truly does it all. And thanks to her, our amazing pictures are on the wall and beautiful. We can’t wait for our next photo session!Amber of Indian Land, SC
We had photos of our two toddlers taken by Alicia and she made the whole experience easy and fun. She allowed our kids to bring toys from home so they could play while she took candid pictures – they really enjoyed the process! The photos came out wonderfully and we couldn’t have been happier 🙂Reena of Charlotte, NC
