The baby plan
Grow with me
If you’re reading this you may either be expecting a baby or have recently welcomed a baby home to your family.
Either way I’m SO excited for you!
This is such an exciting time in your family’s life and I always consider myself so honored to share it with you. Witnessing and capturing the beautiful milestones your baby will experience this first year right alongside you is one of my favorite things!
You’ll find all the information you need to guide you through the complete JCP experience below. I’m excited to give you the full service photography experience you deserve.
THE JULIE COLLINS PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE
It is so common these days to have an iPhone, hard drive, disk or flash drive full of pictures that you take but never do much with. Leaving those memories sitting on a little metal storage device (that may malfunction or get lost/forgotten and definitely will be obsolete technology someday) for nobody to enjoy is so sad to me. Julie Collins Photography strives to make sure that when your children are growing up they see themselves up on your walls. It is proven that having printed pictures of your children hanging on your walls sends a powerful message to them of their importance and increases their self esteem.
These images are ones you never put away!
Your baby is growing more this first year than he/she ever will again. The Baby Plan is designed to capture all of those exciting changes that you may think will last longer than they actually do! One day your little one will be done sucking on those little toes and unfortunately that day is unannounced!
Portraits have the Power
to instantly change your mood for the better just by hanging on the wall.
The portraits I create for you of your baby will be the ones that never get tucked away in a drawer or left on a hard drive never to get printed. These will be the timeless images that you will love for a lifetime and know in your heart that no matter how crazy your days get with a growing family…this you did right.
planning the session
If you booked your newborn session with JCP, signing up for the Baby Plan means that you will get THREE sessions for only $300 (that’s half off!). That breaks down to $100 per session! You also get to choose WHEN you will have your three sessions between these two options:
- 4 months (smiling), 7 months (sitting), 12 months (walking)
- 7 months (sitting), 12 months (walking), and a BONUS family session in year two
We will work closely with each other to determine when to actually photograph your baby when she is hitting these key milestones:
- Demonstrating head strength, responsive smiling, discovering their feet (typically around 4 months)
- Sitting unassisted, crawling and eating baby food (around 7 months)
- Pulling up and taking his/her first steps (around 1 year)
The idea is to capture STAGES, not AGES and every baby masters these skills at different rates.
We begin the process with a consultation, This is a chance to meet each other and get to the heart of what you want out of the images.
Ever have a hard time deciding which images to print or which would look best together on a wall? Or which wall to display?
The boutique experience means that I am with you the entire time helping you decide how to display, where to display and what to display. During the consultation we walk around your home, looking at walls and beginning the design process by planning together. It’s fun!
At the consultation we also decide on location and props (if any will be used). I have a prop gallery available for use at all sessions from baskets and buckets to hats and bows. You are free to use whatever style appeals to you and what fits best keeping your home decor in mind.
We can photograph your baby indoors or out or some of each. All sessions are fully customized around your needs and wants. I can bring my studio to your home where you and your baby are most comfortable or you can come to me. We can use your yard for outdoor pictures or we can travel to a nearby park if you would like. We can make these decisions on the fly too. If your baby is not happy outside we can move inside. I strive to make this as EASY as possible for you!
AN ANNUAL PRODUCT
An annual product is a collection of portrait artwork that when put together at the end of the year makes up a display that looks intentional, well-coordinated and collective.
- Book set
- Wall cluster
- Statement piece
- Keepsake image box
By signing up for the Baby Plan you can rest assured that your images will be perfectly coordinated across all sessions so that however you choose to display them everything will look intentionally thought out.
BABY & ME
It’s no secret that I love photographing children but some of the images that touch my heart most are the ones of those little sweethearts interacting with their moms, dads and siblings. That’s why not only will we capture your baby at all the favorite milestones but immediate family members are always welcome during these sessions.
LET’S GET STARTED
I am so excited to work with you and your family. It is my hope that together we will craft not only wonderful memories, but gorgeous, timeless images and heirloom quality products for display as well. If you have any questions, please get in touch! email@example.com
