What to Expect

If you’re like many of my clients, you are about to welcome your first baby – Congrats! And that most likely means you probably haven’t had professional photos taken since your wedding, right? And depending on how long ago you were married, it’s probably been a while since the last time you were in front of the camera and you might be a little rusty on how all this works, so I’d love to give you an idea of what to expect with your session(s).

Well, first of all, the good news is that an Ashley Sasak Photography maternity/newborn photography session is way more laid back than a wedding and there definitely won’t be as much looking and smiling at the camera  (husbands love that part 😉 ). From our first email exchange to the final delivery of your photos and products – I work hard behind the scenes, so you don’t have to. I know how busy you are and I want your entire experience to be as easy and stress-free as possible.

First Steps

Before even officially reserving your due date, you will have access to the Ashley Sasak Photography Welcome Guide, which will help you help you decide on what type of session will be best for you and help to ensure that I’m the right photographer choice for you. As soon as you’re officially booked, you will receive the Session Preparation Guide, which will give you all the information you need to know about preparing for your session, and then we will also have a phone consult to discuss details and help me get to know you a little better before our session.

Your Session

All sessions take place on location. I do not have a studio. I come to you, so there is no need to leave the comfort of your own home with a new baby. The prep guide and phone consult should have you feeling relaxed and well prepared, so sessions with me are laid back with minimal posing and lots of fun conversation. Maternity sessions last between 45 min and an hour and newborn sessions last somewhere between 1 and 3 hrs depending on your baby’s mood and feeding schedule – I don’t like to rush them 🙂 .

Your Photos

You will receive a sneak peek from your session within 24-48 hrs over on Facebook and Instagram – I know you will be DYING to see the final result. I will then have all photos edited and delivered to you via online gallery within 2 weeks of your session and you will be able to download all your photos from there, share your gallery with friends and family, and order prints or products as desired. After that, we will finalize your photo book design and within 3-4 weeks of being finalized, you will have it in your hands to enjoy for many, many years to come.

Don't Take My Word For It

"...she makes you feel prepared and comfortable and you instantly want to be her friend which is so important during a oftentimes overwhelming and emotional time in your life! Our sessions were so personal too - I felt comfortable texting Ashley questions, loved the sneak peeks she posted on social media and she even hand delivered our beautiful birth announcements."
