Thank you for your interest in Jolie Moore Photography! It is never too early to book your newborn session. It is recommended that you book sometime during your 2nd trimester. I tend to completely book up on average two to three months in advance and my sessions are on a first come first serve basis.
Pricing and what is included in your session can be found under the "pricing" tab at the top of the page. For all newborn sessions, after the contract and deposit are received I will mark your session down "tentatively" by your due date. This of course will not be your actual session date as babies are very unpredicatble as to when they arrive. I then ask that you contact me within 48 hours of the baby being born to set up your exact session date and time. Choices of available session dates are on a first come first serve basis. Most all newborn sessions take place on weekday mornings. Weekend dates are offered only if available. The session date should take place during the first two weeks of the baby being born.
Sessions are shot at my home in Burlington, Kentucky. All newborn sessions are held on weekday mornings and begin at 10am lasting 2-3 hours. The length of the session includes feeding and soothing time as our goal is to have the baby sleeping throughout the session. The average newborn session is 2 hours, but some little ones require a little extra TLC in the form of longer feedings or cuddles back to sleep which could result in a slightly longer session.
I do supply all the props needed as I have a very large variety to choose from. You absolutely may bring any items that you would like incorporated in your photos and I am happy to talk to you about any specific ideas you would like to incorporate after you have booked a session.
One guest is is permitted to attend the session with you if so desired, but please limit it to one. Siblings and parents may also have their photograph taken with the new baby at no extra charge, however siblings are NOT permitted to be present during the entire session. Someone must bring the sibling or siblings at some point during the session and take them once their particular photos are complete. Unfortunately newborn sessions are too long and hot for a young sibling and can be very distracting to you and I. Being as all newborn sessions are shot on weekday mornings, it will be at your discretion to pull a school aged sibling out of school for a short bit to attend the session.
Please note that while sibling and parent shots are complimentary, the focus of the session is on the newborn as it is not a family session. JMP is not responsible for uncooperative siblings.
Please take a few minutes to browse my web site galleries and/or my facebook page to make sure that the type of photos and the style that I shoot are what you are looking for.
If you have any additional questions or would like to book, please just let me know by emailing me at [email protected] or using the "contact" tab located at the top of the page.
I look forward to hearing from you!
