Photo Session Process | Cary NC Newborn Photography with Simply L Photography



The Newborn Photo Session Process




Client contacts Leslie Huffman with Simply L Photography with location address for photo session & preferred date

Leslie will check location to see if it is within travel range and if the date desired is open (if not open she will provide alternate date options) and respond to client

Note: Newborn photo sessions are done in the morning around 10 or 10:30 am in client’s home. Leslie will bring a large soft box for professional lighting, and a few props. Family and sibling pictures will be done in the nursery, living room, outside or anywhere in the home the client prefers.  For ” studio” pictures with a backdrop and props, client will need to have space cleared and ready in their home for Leslie to setup for the photo session on photo session date.   


Client pays non-refundable retainer fee either by check or credit card (retainer fee is non-refundable, however it can be transferred to another date if photo shoot needs to be reschedule due to bad weather, family emergency or illness. Client must contact Leslie by phone or text as soon as they know they need to reschedule – preferably several hours prior to shoot. If bad weather is a issue, Leslie and the Client will be in contact prior to the shoot deciding what to do)


Client fill out questionnaire. Client can set up a short planning meeting or phone call with Leslie if he/she wants to have a photo shoot planning session. These are done on weekdays around lunchtime. Planning sessions are complimentary.
