BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT FILM & PHOTO PACKAGE
This session is designed to capture moments from the first days of your child's life, to be used as an announcement of their birth to family & friends. The session can take place at the location of birth (i.e. hospital, birthing centre, etc.) or in your home, and will typically take place within the first 48 hours of your child's birth. Sessions typically last for about 2 hours, and the atmosphere is down to earth, relaxed, and real. There is no need to perform or stage any scenarios. The more real and raw, the better! We are creating art from your honest moments.
Prior to Session:
Once we confirm your booking, I will email you a questionnaire in order to help me get to know you, learn about the dynamic of your family, and understand what you would like to get from our session. This is important because I am seeking to capture as many real connections as possible, so the more I get to know you, the better! One week prior to the shoot, we will schedule a phone chat to discuss a bit more about how the session will work, and answer any other questions you may have.
During the Session:
Upon my arrival at your home or other location, I'll ask you to introduce me to your family. We'll chat a bit and try to get everyone comfortable and feeling natural. Once everyone is comfortable, you can go about tending to your baby as you normally would—cuddle, feed, swaddle, interact with any other children or family members. The best moments happen organically and typically take no lead from me, but I will offer some slight guidance if necessary. Pretend like I'm a fly on the wall, as you interact with your baby totally and completely just being yourselves.
After the Session:
Within 1 week after our session, I will be sending you a link to your film (about 1 minute in length) as well as an online gallery of photos for you to use as your announcement. You can download the high resolution photos directly through the gallery. I will also send a digital copy of the film. If you require printed images, I would be happy to arrange those services via some of the best print shops that Toronto has to offer.
If you have any questions regarding this style of session or would like to have access to my price list, please do not hesitate to contact me. We can chat a bit about what you're looking for, and arrange the booking process from there.
I look forward to hearing from you!
