How It Works


The Insley Photography Process

4 easy steps


how it works, Begin with a plan

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 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? Are you a mom with two older children, and you need to add to a family 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? Should we bring extra clothes? Can you make me look ten pounds lighter? (I get asked this so often) 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 with a clear understand of the investment you’ll be making and exactly what to do before the shoot. 

We will also schedule a portrait date based on your due date; this usually gets changed a bit but assures you space on my calendar. Getting all the details, and finding out what is most important for you and your family, ensures 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 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. If you 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

About a week after the session, you will come in to view a slideshow of your portraits. Mockups will be created with your portraits displayed on your walls. 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 part where Moms tell me it’s like Christmas for them. 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. 

I can’t wait to meet you and start a plan for your newborn portrait session.

Get Started Here!

Welcoming a new baby is a big milestone in your family’s story.

Creating a family legacy with portrait artwork is where I can help. 

Hanging artwork in your home shows your children they were wanted, prayed for, and they are loved.

Passing their portrait every day sets them up for positive self-esteem and a foundation of love to grow from.

Imagine what it will be like in ten, fifteen, twenty years seeing that sweet newborn portrait every day as you watch your child grow right before your eyes.

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.

I decided to choose this photographer because looking at some of her portraits showed dedication and time well spent in each picture she took of each baby and their families. I expected her to be patient sensitive and warming. She was a natural at everything she did the way she handled my newborn with such gentleness and love she did everything right. She offered refreshments, she made me and my baby feel welcomed with no judgement at all. Her work was not about the money it was about her love for each family that came through her door and the love of her work.

I had best experience with Insley Photography. Alicia made my experience comfortable and memorable. She was very patient with us and ensured that we got the best pictures possible. I would recommend Insley for awesome newborn and mommy pictures. ~Kari
