How and When to Book Your Session
I tend to book up around 2 to 3 months out, so it's never too early to schedule your session date! (especially during the holiday season). You can reserve your date by calling or texting Angelique on her cell phone: (480) 389-7122 or sending an e-mail from the 'Contact Us' page.
It’s best to photograph newborns within the first 5 to 10 days of life. This is when babies are especially sleepy and tolerant of being positioned into the cutest poses. Since the big day is always a little unpredictable, for Newborn Sessions we’ll reserve a general date-range rather than a specific date. Then you can just let me know as soon as baby arrives, and we’ll settle on the final date for creating your dreamy newborn portraits!
This is a time when new moms and dads get to sit back and relax and watch the magic happen! You should plan on 2 to 3 1/2 hours, which allows time for feedings, diaper changes, cuddles and rocking off to sleep.
All Newborn Sessions are conducted in my in-home studio, where we have access to bright natural light as well as studio light, posing pillows, blankets, backdrops, and all the cute bonnets, hats and other props that make some of these portraits so fun.
Family Portraits, Portraits of Children and Maternity
A photography session with Angelique is relaxed, playful and fun. Don't worry about your kids being unruly or unpredictable - that's the beautiful nature of children! Many of my client’s favorite photographs turn out to be those perfectly candid shots of a family in between poses.
A typical session lasts about an hour to an hour and a half, which is right about the time most kiddos decide they're done having their picture taken!
After the Session
After your portrait session, Angelique carefully reviews each image, edits minor blemishes and adds her artistic post-production flair. About two weeks later, your complete set of portraits will be ready to view on a password protected on-line gallery, and you'll be sent a link so that you can download the high resolution images to your computer right then!
