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.

We really enjoyed working with Alicia. She was very professional, and accommodating to special requests. NB photos can be an exhausting process and she was wonderful with our little one and had the patience of a saint! We loved our maternity and newborn photos and look forward to doing our 1 year photos with Insley!! Thank you for the memories!

Alicia is amazing!! The entire experience with Alicia was easy, fun, and pure bliss!! She is professional, patient, prompt, and has an eye for getting the best shot! She was so patient and took great care of our daughter and our 2 YO. My son only wanted to play basketball during the photo shoot and Alicia used that to her advantage. She was able to capture his smile and sweet sibling pictures as well as family pictures by playing basketball with him while taking pictures!! She was able to capture our newborn daughter in such a sweet and innocent way. With precious pictures like these, it's worth the investment!! The quality of her work is superb!!! We have amazing pictures that we will cherish for forever! My experience with Alicia Insely Smith has been AMAZING and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for family, maternity, and newborn pictures!!

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 …
