What's included in your newborn portrait session with Shelly Pray Photography?
I go back in forth in my sales and pricing and trying to find out WHAT DO YOU WANT!?!?! I don't know. It seems in recent years that people just want the "digitals." I want to see the canvas on your wall, the album on your coffee table, the print on your desk at work. So I am changing things up again. I know, I know. If it works, don't change it.... Well I want it to work better for everyone so I will be offering both print and digital sessions. I see a variety of pricing structures here in Colorado Springs, CO. I do believe in quality over quantity for sure! I never expect a client to print 25 images and hang them on their wall from one session. I do hope they pick one or two perfect ones and do just that. Print them big and display them for others to love too! I know for newborns you want everything captured. An album is a perfect place to keep all of these images forever. A photo box with losse 5x7 prints that you could put in a frame! Perfect! Some photographers may bait you in with 50 images! I can't do that. I can't give you the variety and quality on 50 images. I want to give you a few perfect sets! I know that I can take the same picture with 7 different hats and headbands but you will only pick one to print. I promise. Let's make that one perfect! It is not about how many. Its about making your baby look, comfortable, relaxed and adorable. It is about catching that .3 second baby smile.. not snap, snap, snapping! Lots of families print their family and sibling photos and those are definitely my favorites. Sometimes I have parents say, we dont need them or I do not feel camera worthy right now. You are beautiful! That baby someday will see these images. I am sure to capture that new baby LOVE in there! Let me dress you, pull down your pony tail and make magic! You will go on during this first year to capture your baby a million different ways. This first professional shoot will document this fleeting time that quickly fades in your memory. Your baby changes so much in the first few weeks and months. Do this early. Print them to remember. Let me help you.
