Carmel Newborn Photography | The Baby Plan Membership

FAQs & Tips for Mamas

The baby plan membership is our most popular way to document your growing family with four full photography sessions! Our members typically choose to photograph maternity, newborn, 6 months, and 12 months sessions. We encourage mamas to reach out at the beginning of their second trimester to ensure availability and allow ample time to plan your sessions.

The Baby Plan Membership Experience

After booking your membership we will meet for a planning session. Planning sessions are available virtually or in person for each session. This is the time to select wardrobe, location, and begin thinking about what artwork you would like to create from your session or your membership as a whole. Would you like an album encompassing all of baby’s first year, a statement piece from your maternity session, a first year gallery wall? It’s the perfect time to start brainstorming but know that no decisions need to be made until after you’ve seen your images!

The client wardrobe is a curated collection of dresses for mothers and clothing for children (up to size 8). These items are all selected to be both flattering and beautiful on camera. No more running from store to store with your small children in tow to find the perfect dress or the inevitable returns when things do not fit or match perfectly! Most dad’s already have everything they need, but we will be able to coordinate an outfit for him at your planning session as well.

On the morning of your newborn session a professional hair and makeup artist will come to your home to help you get ready. After having three babies myself, I can confidently say the last thing you’ll want to worry about postpartum is getting ready. Those first few weeks with a newborn are exciting and awe-inspiring, but they’re also exhausting, full of questions and changes. Having someone come do your hair and makeup while you can remain comfortably in your home and continue to nurse and snuggle your new baby is the best way to begin your session.

Three to four weeks after your session we will meet for your design & ordering appointment. This is when you will be able to view your images and make your final selections on custom artwork! Your digital files will be available shortly after your order is placed and physical artwork will be delivered to your home within 6-10 weeks.
