I encourage your newborn session to be scheduled 2-4 months in advance. I accept 4 newborn sessions a month, so it’s best to plan ahead. Once you’ve decided to book your session, a tentative date will be set based off of your due date. This date can be adjusted depending on your sweet babies arrival earthside. At this time, a $225 non-refundable retainer & signed contract will be required to reserve your session on my calendar.

We will then schedule a time to meet for coffee or over the phone to discuss the details of your Studio session, following with an email containing helpful tips. If you have booked an In Home Session, we will meet at your home, where we will discuss details of your session and staging tips. I will provide all of the buckets/baskets/crates, blankets, wraps and accessories for your babies session. There is no need to bring any of these, the items I invest in are safe and part of my artistic style.

As your due date gets closer, I will check in to see how things are going. Once your baby is born, please get in touch with me ASAP and we will confirm your date and time together. In Studio Newborns are best photographed before 14 days, while they are still sleepy and before baby acne appears.

Now it’s time to relax. I will take care of everything! Newborn sessions can last up to 3 hours, depending on your baby and the session you choose. During a Studio session, any children & family shots will be completed during the first 30 minutes, please plan on having one parent or grandparent take sibling home immediately after. I keep my studio warm to make sure your sweet baby is cozy & comfortable. Please plan to bring another outfit or dress in layers so that you are comfortable.

You had your session and you loved it...what’s next? Your Reveal Party! Two weeks after your session we will meet to review your session (we will schedule this at the time you book your session to make sure you see your images as soon as possible!) At your Reveal Party you will view your images for the first time. It’s definitely something to get excited about.

On the day of your Reveal Party I will come to your home (no babysitter needed) and I’ll even bring a yummy treat! We will start by watching your custom slideshow with images & video clips that I captured during your session.

After you’ve experienced your custom slideshow, you’ll have time to go through your images and take a look at product samples. You will be able to physically touch and visualized what products are most important to you. My favorites are the heirloom wood art & canvases.

There will be plenty of time to ask questions, to hold different images up to your walls in your home to see what size will look best. Taking your time to decide which images are your favorites.

The collections on the following pages have been thoughtfully put together to give you the best quality products with the best value. Those collections are available at your Reveal Party appointment only. If the collection doesn’t meet your needs, no worries, all products are available 20% off on the day of your appointment.

The goal of the Reveal Party is to finalize your order so that you can have your products in hand as soon as possible. The goal is to make this stress free, in order to do that, please review all collections and products and have an idea of what will fit your needs best. That may change after you see your images , but having an idea of what you want is better than not.

After all of the fun at your Reveal Party there will be a short wait before you receive your images. All digital images you order will be delivered within 48 hours and products will be hand delivered in 2-4 weeks. We will schedule a time to safely deliver your products once they arrive.

Feeling overwhelmed about planning your session? Not excited about getting the family to participate?

CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR SESSION WILL BE FUN!!!

I understand feeling overwhelmed and putting way too much energy into getting the family on board with a photo session. I am a mother to 4 sweet & wild blessings. When those feelings of dread & being overwhelmed creeps in... - H A V E N O F E A R - This is where my more than 10 years of experience, secret skills from mothering 4 crazy kids & motivational planning will bless you & your family. I will be there to hold your hand, together we will plan your session during your consultation. We can meet over coffee or talk over the phone. Depending on the session you book, we will discuss: Location, What to Wear, What Not to Do, & Bribery

I love capturing moments during a session in a way that I am storytelling. This will bring out the unique qualities in your family, child or fresh new baby!  Capturing each family members unique personality is very important to me as an artist. To do this I put a huge priority on getting everyone comfortable from the start of the session.  Having my own pictures taken as well as my families with me has left me with a variety of experiences.  I have had the awkward feeling of not knowing what to do, where to look or how to act.  I’ve also had the amazing feeling of just enjoying my family, being directed just enough to bring out the great and fun family I have.  The latter is what you can expect from a session with KLFROST!

This aspect of our session is vital to getting genuine & expressive photos of your children.  You can expect that we’ll spend the first few minutes of your session just playing and getting comfortable.  My experience with my own 4 kids has given me a tremendous knowledge on how to break down the barriers that children put up. You can expect us to be having fun and laughing pretty quickly!

I will have PEZ on hand, if needed as encouragement.  I know that I need them with my kiddos sometimes, but if this is something you would like to do without please let me know.

We’ll 
begin with the candid, fun and playful images to get everyone comfortable. Don’t worry though, we will make it to get that posed, picture perfect family portrait!  I like to wait till the kids are nice and comfortable with me before I start giving them too much direction so you can expect this further into the session.
