Oh, those sweet newborn days. I've had 5 newborns and know just how exhausting but also precious and fleeting they are. They change SO QUICKLY and the only regret you'll ever have about pictures of this time is not doing them.
My newborn sessions are lifestyle sessions - relaxed, in your home, lots of snuggling, lots of love. We'll walk through the whole process ahead of time so that once baby comes you don't have to feel stressed worrying about pictures and can just enjoy those early days.
let's freeze a moment of time
I love getting to take my time for newborns...and for Mama. She fit three outfit changes into this one and I love the variety we got!
And their first Fur baby
Baby Emma was so sweet...but big sister wasn't feeling photos that day. Sometimes even the easiest, chillest toddler acts completely different when a photographer comes in their space.
Don't worry, toddlers don't phase me. We worked around her, let her do her own thing and join in when she was ready, and we still ended up with some sweet sister connections.
With a big sister
After you've looked around here to get your initial questions answered and you know you like my style, your next step is to fill out the contact form below to reach me. I'll get back to you within 24 hours (if it's the weekend, you'll hear from me Monday). If you don't get a response in 24 hours, check your spam folder.
We can chat through email, or I'm happy to schedule a phone call or Zoom (or if you have Marco Polo, that's my favorite way to chat back and forth) so we can get your questions answered efficiently. It's also really nice for us to meet "face (to screen) to face" because we can get to know each other better and get a better feel for if we're a good fit. It's important to feel comfortable with your photographer!
1. Say Hello
Your questions are answered and you're so excited to make it official! I'll send over a booking proposal where you'll select your session option, sign a contract and pay your creative fee. Once I sign too then you are OFFICIALLY BOOKED, YAY!
Once it's official I'll send a detailed guide your way. That guide walks you through every step of the process and includes a San Antonio location guide, a style guide, a link to my Client Closet, and all kinds of other ideas to get you thinking about how we can best capture this sweet season of your life.
2. Schedule it
After you've had a chance to go through the photoshoot guide, you will fill out a short questionnaire for me with your thoughts and preferences. I know you're busy and I don't want to pile more on your plate, but the guide and questionnaire really help get you thinking about ideas you may not have considered and let me organize all your information so I can best serve you best.
I LOVE collaborating with clients and am happy to have additional phone calls or Marco Polo chats throughout the planning process. I've had moms text me pictures from dressing rooms for feedback while they're out shopping and I love it when you feel comfortable enough with me to do that!
It's picture day! We've been communicating and being flexible about the schedule, since babies don't really care about calendars. You're a little tired but you were good and prepared ahead of time and this day will be one of sweet connection with your new addition while I am quietly in the background giving guidance when needed.
Mama, you might be feeling uncomfortable in your postpartum body, but I promise I will help you find beautiful flattering clothes and I will capture you at great angles and in great light. When you look back at these pictures, what will stand out to you is the love you have for your baby and the sweet connection you feel. And that is always beautiful.
4. Your Session
I know you're so excited to get a glimpse of how things came out, so a few days after our shoot I'll post a few sneak peeks on Instagram. If you follow me, I'll be able to tag you and that lets you repost to your page or stories too. So exciting!
In a couple weeks you'll get an email to access your full gallery. There you'll be able to see all your edited images, select your favorites and decide what you want to purchase. I can get to work creating custom artwork or if you prefer to DIY it the digital files are always an option too. Most people want the digitals and also love having me do the work of designing and ordering some products too...but no purchasing decisions are made until you see your pictures and know EXACTLY what you want.
5. Your Photographs
full investment guide given upon inquiry
Investment starts at $650
I am a full-service San Antonio newborn photographer, which means I hold your hand through the entire process and make it as stress-free for you as possible to get amazing pictures and to get them made into products. When you're ready to book, you pay my creative fee that reserves your session and gets us going on the planning process, but you don't have to commit to any further purchasing decisions until you've seen your images and know exactly how much you love them.
One-two weeks after our session you'll receive a gallery with your edited images. At that point you can decide exactly what you want. You can purchase just digital files, beautiful custom products designed by me, or any combination of the two.
We had Cassey over to our house family pictures and I HIGHLY recommend her! Her friendly outgoing personality put at all at ease, even my stubborn toddler! ALL of the photos she took were pure magic and beautiful. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone reading this and all of my friends!
Where do I even begin?! From the initial inquiry I made about booking a session to the delivery of our photo gallery, Cassey made every part of the process so easy and fun! Picking coordinating outfits usually stresses me out, but Cassey provides simple guides and collaborated with me via Marco Polo in such a way that I actually enjoyed it. She answered all of my questions and helped us choose the perfect location for the session based on our wants/needs. Seriously just can’t recommend her enough.
The final images in our gallery were gorgeous! I mean STUNNING! She strives to not only capture beautiful images but ones that also show you- your natural personality- your chemistry- the real YOU. We also had a great time during the shoot even though it ended up being colder than we expected and had two kids to wrangle. We can’t wait to work with Cassey again! The search for a photographer is over—we found the one!
Cassey was so great to work with! She is very professional and she was dedicated to making sure our photoshoot was perfect!
She photographed our gender reveal photos and I can honestly say I’m so happy we chose her to capture that moment. The pictures turned out perfect. They are so beautiful and we couldn’t be happier with the results! I highly recommend her services! You will not be disappointed.
