Plan

Begin with a plan that keeps the end in mind!

You know you want to have a portrait made to celebrate the birth of your baby, but what are you going to do with it? Before I pick up my camera to capture those tiny little features, we need to discuss what is most important to you. Do you have the perfect location above the crib for a beautiful image of your new baby? Or are you a mom with two older siblings for baby, and you need to add to a family gallery wall you’ve already started in the play room? I am here to help you! Your personal planning consultation will help me fill your unique needs and create a tailor made plan just for you.

The Details: Planning Appointment & Design Consultation

We will meet in person either at the Studio or in your home and start your portrait session plan. We will go over some questions to get to know your family. I will answer all of your burning questions — and probably a few you didn’t even know to ask! What should I wear? Or should we bring extra clothes? What will it cost? How should we prepare?

We will also schedule a tentative portrait date based on baby’s due date; this usually gets changed a bit but assures I don’t over book my calendar. I want to get all the details, and find out what is most important for you and your family. We will then plan our wall designs, our clothing choices and our backgrounds for the portrait session.

Portrait Session:

Now that we have made a plan together it is time for me to create your beautiful baby’s portraits! I will 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. I aim to capture all the details that will become cherished memories for a lifetime.

Viewing and Ordering Appointment:

We will view a slideshow of your portraits and then talk about our plan. I will have mockups prepared with your portraits displayed on your walls. If you’ve expressed interest in albums, I will have album mock-ups and we can make adjustments based on the portraits you love. Every viewing and ordering appointment is customized to create artwork your family will love for a lifetime.

Delivery and Installation Appointment:

I will install your wall art if you’d like, and I will hand-deliver your albums and gift items. This is all part of my personal service to you so we can go over all of the details in person! I can’t wait to meet you and start a plan for your newborn portrait session.

Alicia, I really appreciate your help with Justins Newborn baby pictures. They turned out great and we couldn't be happier. Thank you, Jenean Harris

Alicia came to our home to do both maternity, newborn and family photos. I resisted at first to wanting maternity photos taken, but I could not be happier with the results. They came out wonderful. I also resisted on having a family photo done after my baby girl was born. Not feeling like I looked my best a few days after having her. I also love the family photo that she took for us. The newborn pictures of my daughter are absolutely amazing. Best advice I could give is to have the pictures taken I am glad I did! You are only pregnant with that baby and have a newborn once!

Why I could kick myself for selling just digitals! Print, print, print!

Why I could kick myself for selling just digitals! Back when I started out on my own in 2004 digital was still kind of new. Everyone assumed digital was archival. I mean we could back it up and make unlimited copies. Archival is a term often used by photographers meaning a print or film can …



Nina’s 18 months

Oh miss N was so smiley this fall afternoon. She is the perfect little model. Could be because we have been getting together for portrait sessions since she was a newborn. Or it could just be because she is a happy go lucky little girl. Nothing gets her upset.  Her dress was handmade by her …
