what to expect

Once you have chosen Michaela Marie Photography to capture your baby’s first few days you will meet with Michaela for a brief meeting at the studio. This is a great way to meet Michaela, check out the studio and the props offered. During the session you will go over any questions you may have, any ideas you would like to try, go over the contract and take care of the deposit. Michaela will then jot down your due date in her calendar. Once baby is here you will contact Michaela as soon as possible and you will set up a day and time for your session! Sessions are scheduled Monday-Friday.

During your session, the most important tip Michaela could offer is to stay calm. This is a time for you to relax and watch how precious your new baby looks. Baby will cry, baby will go to┬áthe bathroom on the props (it will not be the first time and it won’t be the last), baby may also want to be awake for part of the session. That is all okay, they lead the show. It is also important because baby can feel your energy. Michaela has seen a baby go from crying to calm all because mom came within two feet of baby. It’s incredible what moms and dads energy can accomplish.

Once your session is completed, Michaela will edit the images, which will take two-three weeks. The images will then be uploaded to a password protected online gallery where all images may be downloaded. Prints and canvases are also available to purchase through your gallery. The gallery will be available for two weeks, during that time Michaela will mail you a CD of your images.
