Maternity Portraits, Newborn, Infant & Children Portraits, PLUS the entire family, with family pets & grandparents!
A “baby plan” is a series of portrait sessions and popular in the industry, and typically is a great way to get portraits regularly, at a preferred rate. Traditionally, it is intended to showcase only one subject – the pregnant mom only, or the newborn baby or infant child only. For years, this was my offering. Then I thought “what about the rest of the family?” I now offer something truly exciting just for my portrait session clients!
My “Watch US Grow” Portrait plan covers one year in your family’s life!
You pick the right STAGE, the right time for your family needs to start the year. Schedule & complete 4 sessions within one year. It’s easy!
STAGES OF A FAMILY
- Maternity – The mother-to-be, to be photographed between 7-8 months (3rd trimester, can be done sooner) with any immediate family members, pets, grandparents.
- Newborn, Infant – A Newborn is at birth, directly at post-birth, and up to 16 weeks. Infant sessions are dependent on a child’s development, with sessions between 6-9 months (ability to hold head up, first teeth, smiling, laughing)
- Toddler – Ages 1 to 3 years (walking, talking, playing)
- Children – Ages 4 to 7 years (all hell has broken loose!)
- “Tweens” & Teens – Ages 8 to 16 (start them young and they’ll be seasoned models by this time in their life!)
- Pets are MY Family – for many PETS fill the need of unconditional love! (I get you, I have 2 miniature pinschers…dogs, cats, fish, goats, cows, horses…whatever the pet, game on!)
- Family – formal group portrait of the immediate family members – parents, children, pets, and grandparents
The Package Deal
2 Stages plus one birthday and one family session equals one Storybook Watch Us Grow” package.
Additional offerings – separate from “Watch Us Grow” plans
- Birthday Only – any age – most fun possible with a cake, let’s make a fun memory and a mess!
- High School Seniors – ages 17 – 19 (don’t MISS this BIGGEST moment in the family – separate package is offered for these portrait sessions)
- Generations – this is a huge opportunity to capture 4-5 generations in a formal portrait! a Generation portrait is very important in my unsolicited opinion. The 1st Family Formal portrait is not a Generations Family portrait session, although it may appear similar.
- EVENTS – Family Reunions, Milestone Birthday Gatherings, Family Outings, etc.
…one heck of a professional photographer with credentials like most only can dream about had our family outfitted, posed and had our family pictures done in 30 minutes…
These special items are the main purchase options for a Watch Us Grow Storybook session and will showcase the best images from all images captured over the year, plus, for each session you will receive a set of prepared images to share on your favorite social media networks!
Additional press printed products like announcement cards, framed prints, albums, etc. and other digital products and memorabilia items for gift giving may be purchased anytime.
My current home base is Gilroy, CA. I operate from multiple satellites including Concord, Manchester & Nashua, New Hampshire; Farmington, Fayette, Pittsfield & Vassalboro, Maine; N. Reading & Worcester, Massachusetts & Douglasville, Georgia. I book in advance and use Facebook to let people know where and when I am traveling to my satellite destinations. Typically, I am in New England during the very late summer/fall, and in Georgia during the winter/spring/early summer. If you have a special need let me know via email or direct message/text message me.
Don’t let the word FORMAL throw you for a loop…it’s simply the word I use to define a family session. You can be as formal, or as NON-formal as you like! Families today are dynamic and on the move! We can go anywhere you like in the world for this session (please see travel disclaimer).
Package value is over $5500, well actually, it’s priceless…
