Upon booking your session, you will receive our product pricing guide. We will then have a pre-design consultation that may take place via phone call or through email. During this phone or email conversation, we will discuss small details of your session. We will discuss whether this will be for maternity or to showcase the bond between you and your child. We will talk color palette, who will be involved and ultimately your vision for your artwork. *Please note: Creation fee includes the artist's time and talent, your Design Consultation as well as your proofing and ordering appointment. Digital and product collections are available for purchase during your proofing and ordering appointment
3-5 days after booking, I will invite you to our home studio to design your session. Upon arriving at our studio, you will be welcomed with snacks and your own session design board that I have customized based off of our pre-design consultation. I will show you the ideas I have come up with and we will work together to change things if necessary and finalize all the details. Each motherhood session includes 2 wardrobe items with matching accessories of your choice. Outdoor sessions only include 1 wardrobe. We also offer nude maternity as an alternative wardrobe selection. We want our moms to feel beautiful and we highly suggest having hair and makeup done to complete your look and to add a little pampering to your experience. If you do not have a hair and makeup artist in mind, we offer this service through Jennifer Serra Beauty as an add on.
The day is finally here! If you have added hair and makeup service to your session, we ask that you arrive 30 mins before your session time 45 mins early for outdoor sessions. If you have not added hair and makeup please arrive 15 mins before your session time. Once again when you arrive to our studio, you will be welcomed with quiet music and very light refreshments (think fruit and cheese). While you are enjoying refreshments, we will briefly go over the session details once more before having you get dressed. If children will be involved we ask that you dress them first. Once everyone is dressed, we will begin your session, or travel to the session location. Please note that sessions with children will last approximately One hour. This is because children lose interest very quickly and to keep everyone happy and stress free, we keep sessions shorter.
Approximately 2-3 days after your session, we will have a proofing appointment. This appointment is designed for you to chose your favorite images and choose which collection you would like to purchase. 50% of the total amount of your product purchase is due at the time of your proofing appointment. 7-14 days after your proofing appointment, you will be asked to the studio one last time for your final portrait reveal. It is at this appointment where we finalize your product purchase with the choosing of images for your products. The remaining 50% is due at this appointment. *Payment plans are available. No products will be ordered until the payment plan is complete.
